HUMAN CENTERED TEAMING OF AUTONOMOUS BATTLEFIELD ROBOTICS

by W. Stuart Michelson

Abstract

This paper surveys the state of autonomous systems and outlines a novel command and control (C2) paradigm that seeks to accommodate the environmental challenges facing warfighters and their robotic counterparts in the future. New interface techniques will be necessary to reinforce the paradigm that supports the C2 of multiple human-machine teams completing diverse missions as part of the Third Offset Strategy. Realizing this future will require a new approach to teaming and interfaces that fully enable the potential of independent and cooperative decision-making abilities of fully autonomous machines while maximizing the effectiveness of human operators on the battlefield.
