Abstract : This report provides the equations of evolution of an encounter involving a teleoperated vehicle. The global model contains interconnected submodels describing the conventional external primitives of the encounter (base states), suddenly occurring events (feature states), and a dynamic description of the remote operator (the generalized operator model). This model is phrased as a set of stochastic differential equations that can accommodate both linear and nonlinear effects. The final section of the report places these results within the context of the multitask problem, and indicates the direction of future research which will yield a quantitative description of vehicle performance in a rapidly changing environment.
