Abstract : This paper will document the development of the Convoy Active Safety Technology (CAST) program, which was created to design a low cost, optionally manned vehicle (OMV) solution for tactical wheeled vehicle (TWV) fleet. This paper will describe the approach taken to integrate low cost sensors for understanding the environment sufficiently to accomplish convoy missions. This paper will also discuss the approach taken to develop the low cost guidance and navigation solution used in the CAST program.
