U.S. Army Robotic Combat Vehicles Program Phase 1 Completed

Persistent Systems has successfully completed Phase I of the U.S. Army Robotic Combat Vehicles (RCV) program, in which it has networked several vehicles using its Wave Relay MANET (mobile ad hoc network) radio solutions. The RCV program, run under the Army’s Future Command’s Next Generation Combat Vehicles – Cross Functional Team, aims to prove the viability of manned-unmanned teaming, culminating in a future Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) controlling multiple RCV “wingmen.”
