Any questions related to this announcement should be sent to BAA08-71@darpa.mil.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVE AND DESCRIPTION:

The Legged Squad Support System (LS3) Program is an effort to develop a walking platform, preferably a quadruped, which can accompany dismounted soldiers and increase their combat capability. LS3 is envisioned to augment squads by maneuvering with them in complex terrain where wheeled tactical vehicles cannot go, carry traditional squad equipment (in an effort to improve squad performance), carry new squad equipment (in an effort to give new combat and sustainment capabilities to the squad), and do so in a self-controlled fashion (requiring minimal human interaction and control). LS3 is intended to carry 400lb or more of payload, allow for 24 hours of self-sustained capability including 20 miles of maneuver, with a total weight (including payload and fuel) of no more than 1250lb.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION:

Participants must register no later than November 10, 2008 by sending contact info to BAA08-71@darpa.mil.
