dc.description.abstractThe objective of this capstone project was to build a simulated system using the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System/Defense Acquisition System (JCIDS/DAS) process to gain insight into JCIDS/DAS as it relates to unmanned robotics systems. JCIDS and DAS are the Department of Defense’s procedures and guidelines for acquiring military programs. Using JCIDS/DAS and system engineering (SE) methodology, the team developed a radiological clearance system (RCS) and an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) using LEGO MINSTORMS. The UGV was named the Threat Exposure and Clearing Hardware Manipulated Autonomously or Networked (TECHMAN). The team researched UGVs, software platforms and the JCIDS /DAS regulations to tailor an SE approach in designing and building the TECHMAN robot, starting with the mission needs and requirements followed by system architecture development. The team tested and evaluated two TECHMAN systems. One system was teleoperated and the other was autonomous. The team compared the test results and other system attributes of the two platforms. The knowledge gained from the project results was used to provide insight into the JCIDS/DAS process with regard to procurement of robotics systems.en_US
