Near-peer competitors have taken concerted action to develop their indigenous robotics and autonomous systems, by developing long-range, precise, smart and stealthy unmanned weapons platforms. We are now seeing new autonomous land programmes spring to life across NATO and partner nations in response. By harnessing disruptive technologies in AI and Robotics, the nature of armoured manoeuvre has changed – with it becoming increasingly clear that any conversation about the unmanned can no longer be had, without considering human-machine teaming also.
Led and moderated by the Robotics Requirements Branch of U.S. Army Futures Command, the Unmanned Ground Vehicles conference provides a dedicated platform to compliment discussions at International Armoured Vehicles and deep dive into the world of autonomous land systems.
Discussion topics during the conference will include:
Human-machine teaming and changing the way we fight
Building & controlling AI and how to achieve verifiable and trusted standards
Reducing the cognitive load
Sensor fusion, multi-functional vehicles and operationalising the technology
Cyber security issues: Resilience requirements across flexible systems and different payloads
Managing information and the software code within a kill chain
Information integration across radios, cameras, sensor systems and remote weapon systems
Different autonomy needs across air defence, troop support, engineer tasks, engineering/bridging
