The Mobility System for Crossing Off-Road and Urban Terrain, or M-SCOUT, unmanned aerial vehicle prepares to be launched from the training ranges on Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., during the Maneuver Support, Sustainment and Protection Integration Experiments-2020, or MSSPIX-20, Sept. 16, 2020. 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.
