The subject of minefield clearance has received much attention in the last few years due to its necessity during modern warfighting, and its unavoidable inherent dangers. Clearing the battlefield of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) is a formidable task that presently requires the risk of human life. Future strategy calls for the use of a fleet of small, inexpensive, but very capable robots to clear the battlefield of all unexploded ordnance. The Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technical Center has developed a "BUGS" Basic UXO gathering System, in order to examine such strategy. In support of this effort, simulations are being conducted to examine the effects of navigation, control schemes, and terrain characteristics on battlefield clearance operations.
