U.S. ARMY ROBOTICS AND AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS STRATEGY UPDATE
Innovative technologies are new and disruptive (e.g. the airplane in 1914, the tank in 1917, nuclear weapons in 1945). Technological innovation often “backs us up” into suddenly needing a concept of employment . Robotics fits squarely in this category. The Chief of Staff of the Army, GEN Ray Odierno provided guidance in 2013 for TRADOC to pursue opportunities for “innovation” rather than traditional evolutionary methods of transformation. His instructions clearly articulated his desire to integrate robotics across the entire Army- not just engineer units and counter-IED efforts. DOWNLOAD
