BRIEF PROJECT OVERVIEW
EATR: ENERGETICALLY AUTONOMOUSTACTICAL ROBOT
Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II ProjectDARPA Contract W31P4Q-08-C-0292Presented By:Dr. Robert FinkelsteinPresident, Robotic Technology Inc.301-983-4194BobF@RoboticTechnologyInc.comwww.RoboticTechnologyInc.com6 April 2009
 
ENERGETICALLY AUTONOMOUS TACTICAL ROBOT(EATR)
Concept [patent pending]:anautonomous robotic vehicle able toperform long-range, long-endurancemissions indefinitely without theneed for conventional refueling
Robotic vehicle forages:biologically-inspired, organism-likebehavior the equivalent of eating
Can find, ingest, and extract energyfrom biomass in the environment(and other organically-based energysources)
Can also use conventional fuels(heavy fuel, gasoline, kerosene,diesel, propane, coal) when available
 
EATR: RATIONALE AND UTILITY
A robotic vehicle’s inherent advantage is
the ability to engage in long-endurance,tedious, and hazardous tasks such as RSTA(Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and TargetAcquisition) without fatigue or stress
Advantage is diminished by need toreplenish fuel supply
EATR provides:
Revolutionary increase in robotic groundvehicle endurance and range
Ability of robot to perform extendedmissions autonomously
Ability to occupy territory and performmissions with sensors or weaponsindefinitely
Long-range, long-endurance unmannedground vehicles (UGVs) can complementthe missions of long-range, long-enduranceunmanned air vehicles (UAVs)
