Modularity

· All UGV have these common Modules: · Common within a platform size · Common across platforms of various sizes · Integration of components is completely open-architecture · Interoperability standards define the requirements for the interfaces between modules and the form factor of the modules · The mission specific payload determines the function of system · Modularity is the countermeasure to Obsolescence in a rapidly evolving technology environment · Compete for the best modules available within the interoperability standards · Upgrade or modernize select modules (such as sensors) as needed, while others (such as mobility platform) endure for longer periods
