A Soldier stationed on Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., commands the computer system for the Mobility System for Crossing Off-Road and Urban Terrain (M-SCOUT) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and prepares the unmanned aerial vehicle for system launch during the Maneuver Support, Sustainment and Protection Integration Experiments-2020, or MSSPIX-20, in Fort Leonard Wood, Sept. 16, 2020. The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center researchers worked with Soldiers to test M-SCOUT during MSSPIX-20. M-SCOUT is a prototype warning system mounted inside a ground vehicle that displays mobility obstacles on a map, detected from a sensor data cloud on-board an unmanned aerial system. The live terrain data is combined with mobility performance models to updated routes and provide situational awareness to convoy commanders.
