The competition is seeking new technologies, processes and ways of working to improve the way we deliver mission-critical supplies, focusing on the challenging ‘last mile’ resupply in the land environment.
It involves delivering combat supplies from the forward-most location to personnel engaged in combat operations. Although relatively small in distance, these resupply activities are challenging as they are in an environment that is typically hostile, complex and contested. These activities need to quickly and efficiently deliver vital supplies in order to enable successful mission outcomes.
The challenges of this Accelerator competition are to develop and demonstrate:
Challenge 1: unmanned air and ground load carrying platforms
Challenge 2: technologies and systems to allow load carrying platforms to operate autonomously
Challenge 3: technologies to autonomously predict, plan, track and optimise resupply demands from military users
