DOD Shares 25 Year Unmanned Vehicle Roadmap

The Defense Department’s new Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap (pdf), released December 23, has a number of challenges for the years ahead.

  • pinpoint inertial guidance systems that are jam-proof
  • camera-mounted, loitering munitions that get launched from an unmanned "mothership" and hunt targets in deadly "swarms."
  • offloading as many human tasks as possible onto machines
