GD UK to take part in AWE19
General Dynamics UK is to participate in the British Army Warfighting Experiment 2019 (AWE19) following the acceptance of its proposal for Manned Unmanned-Teaming (MUM-T).
For the experiment, the company will deliver and demonstrate its Multi-Utility Tactical Transport (MUTT) 6x6 UGV and an optionally-tethered UAS, deployed from its Ajax reconnaissance vehicle. The remote assets will be controlled and have imagery displayed directly to the current Ajax commander crew station, with a dismounted option.
The experiment, which will be run by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory for Army HQ in March 2019, will give the British Army opportunitied to assess the commander’s cognitive burden over a range of representative vignettes.
Several innovative technologies will be used during the demonstration.
