2022 UAF Summit: Using UAF to Define Army Vehicle Architectures

Presented by

Shannon Griffith (DoD US Army Ground Vehicles Robotics, Architecture Group) & David Hetherington (Systems Strategy, Inc.)

About this talk

Abstract: AGVRA is the Reference Architecture for Autonomous Ground Vehicles that will provide architectural guidelines and best practices, business and technical, for the Army Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) community. AGVRA 3.0 consists of a suite of nine interoperable domain specific reference architectures that cover the design problem all the way from the organizational capabilities down to low-level details of the brake actuators in a combat vehicle. In addition to giving an overview of AGVRA itself, this presentation will cover the top two layers of the AGVRA suite: Large Unit Mission (LUM) based on UAF and Small Team Task Model (STM) based on SysML. Finally, we will conclude with a brief discussion of some of the practical tooling challenges we encountered in doing this work as well as some related fundamental digital engineering challenges that could benefit from the attention of the OMG community.
