Abstract: This project studied the possibility of using automated unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) for unexploded ordnance (UXO) clearance at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), NM. Various multiple-vehicle integration systems and search techniques were investigated and the basic UXO gathering system (BUGS) performance was analyzed. The use of a BUGS-like system was recommended for use at WSMRs Phase II impact areas, as well as for further research on search techniques and mobile platforms in a desert environment.
