WARREN, Mich., 8 July 2010. Scientists at General Dynamics Robotics Systems in Westminster, Md., will develop and demonstrate robust robotic technologies to advance the state-of-the-art in military robotics perception and control technologies under terms of $9.4 million U.S. Army contract awarded last week.
General Dynamics will develop military robot technologies to permit unmanned vehicles to conduct missions autonomously in populated urban environments while these military robots adapt to changing conditions. Awarding the contract are officials of the Army Tank-automotive & Armaments Command (TACOM) Contracting Center in Warren, Mich.
General Dynamics will do the work in Westminster, Md., and should be finished by June 2013. For more information contact General Dynamics Robotics Systems online at www.gdrs.com.
