Abstract
Today, Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) provide significant supporting capabilities in military operations worldwide. When UGVs are used to their full potential, the number of casualties is decreased and the combat effectiveness of warfighters is increased. UGVs are being developed in different sizes to meet different mission capability requirements. The employment of available UGVs and the development of new UGV capabilities have been rising steadily. Countries have started giving more importance to UGVs, and they are now being employed all over the world. The Turkish Ministry of National Defense (MND) can use the advantages of UGVs in a number of ways to assist in its efforts against terrorist activities. The purpose of this MBA project is to conduct an analysis of the best available UGV in the current market with respect to the requirements of the Turkish MND. After providing some background and market research on UGVs, we will explore their capabilities and their capability gaps in regard to the requirements of the Turkish MND. In the end, this project will determine the best available near-term UGV for the Turkish MND by employing the Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) method of the U.S. Defense Acquisition System.
