The purpose of this thesis is to mathematically model the Tactical Unmanned Ground Vehicle (TUGV) in the Janus(A) Combat Model. The TUGV has three sensors, an optical, thermal, and acoustic sensor. Algorithms currently exist in Janus(A) for both optical and thermal sensors. An acoustic detection algorithm exists although not available to all Janus(A) system users. This thesis examines the TUGV prototype, explains the Janus(A) TUGV model, discusses existing acoustic detection algorithms, and tests the TUGV model in a scenario driven experiment.
