Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) Interoperability Profile (IOP) Overarching Profile, Version 0 [open pdf - 860KB]
"The Robotics Systems Joint Project Office (RS JPO) has launched an initiative to identify and define interoperability standards to be organized and maintained within an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) Interoperability Profile (IOP). This IOP will be employed by UGV acquisition managers in the acquisition of future Programs of Record, the upgrade of fielded systems, and the evaluation/acquisition of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products. A primary goal of this initiative is to leverage existing and emerging standards within the Unmanned Vehicle (UxV) community such as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AS-4 Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS) standard, the Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic System (AEODRS) Architecture Description Documents Version 1.0, and the Army Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Project Office IOPs with an end goal of:  Facilitating interoperability among new UGV initiatives and legacy systems;  Facilitating interoperability between controllers and UxV robotic system(s);  Facilitating collaboration between UGV and UAS systems;  Providing a path forward to standardized interoperable technology solutions;  Promoting payload and on-board subsystem modularity and commonality across the portfolio of UGV systems."
