Abstract : This report presents the results of a technology assessment and system analysis for the application of remote control and robotics technology to military assault rafts. A number of system concepts were identified and evaluated, leading to the recommendation of a remotely piloted raft as the most promising baseline concept. Topics include: Automation, Ferrying, Remote piloting, River crossing operations, and Armored vehicle operations.
