    New Test Method for Evaluating AerialResponse RobotSituational Awareness: Map Wide Areas (Stitched Images)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E54.09 | Committee E54 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The purpose of this test method is to specify the apparatuses, procedures, and performance metrics necessary to quantitatively evaluate the system capability to accurately map wide areas with objects of interest in the environment . This test method applies to aerial systems operated remotely from a standoff distance appropriate for the intended mission. The system includes a remote operator in control of all functionality and any assistive features or autonomous behaviors that improve the effectiveness or efficiency of the overall system. This test method may be performed anywhere the specified apparatuses and environmental conditions can be implemented as described. Results should be considered within the context of related test methods in the Maneuvering suite when comprehensively evaluating robotic system capabilities.
