The design of the Black Knight, Armed Robotic Demonstrator was started in 2005 and it was unveiled in 2006 at the Association of the United States Army in Washington D.C. This unmanned ground vehicle is very similar to a light tank armed with a turret-mounted 30 mm gun and a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun. The vehicle is fitted with a 300-horsepower Caterpillar Corporation diesel engine.

In January 2006, Carnegie Mellon''s National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) received a contract from BAE Systems to design and add the sensors, hardware and computing elements for full autonomous navigation capability. In the late summer of 2006, the ARI) autonomy system was successfully tested during a week-long field trial in Somerset, PA…"
