Abstract
The Autonomous Intelligent Systems (Land) initiative has been tasked with researching and developing innovative autonomous vehicles that will assist the Canadian Forces in performing their duties in the 22nd century. This research will continue for many years on many different types of unmanned ground vehicles. Thus it requires a software development environment that will protect what will become a substantial investment in intellectual property that is implemented in software algorithms. This environment must be based upon standards that are as universally supported as possible. The software development environment must also be compatible with the Autonomous Land Systems (ALS) project Unmanned Ground Vehicle Electronic Hardware Architecture[1]. This report describes the software development environment developed for the ALS project. The environment is based upon open standards and meets the diverse requirements of the project. This environment is currently being used by all applications being developed for unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) at DRDC Suffield under the ALS project.
