Abstract This preliminary report focuses on the research and development (R&D) and demonstration of an unmanned ground system (UGS) technology suitable for tele-operated and autonomous robotic firefighting. The R&D effort was conducted by the Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL), Materials and Manufacturing Directorate (RXQ), Airbase Engineering Development Branch (RXQE). RXQE performed the demonstration at Ft. Drum, NY, a U.S. Army military reservation in support of AFRL's 2010 Tech Warrior Exercise. The demonstration involved the use of AFRL's developed unmanned firefighting vehicle (UFV), known as the 'Fire Defender', to showcase first generation autonomous UFV behaviors to assist emergency first responders/firefighters in hazardous fire environments.
