Abstract : IST-032/RTG-014 aim was to consider the potential of modern multi-robot systems for the use in military domains. There has been substantial interest in the use of MRS for a variety of military purposes. A better understanding of human computer and/or robot interaction requirements and development of techniques for evaluating the effectiveness of MRS to meet military purposes will provide military users with a basis for determining their requirements for this technology. The group identified possible application areas for Human-Multi-Robot Systems in military domains: (1) Reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition (RSTA); (2) Ordnance disposal, mine clearing operation, de-mining and NBC decontamination; (3) Security, defence and sniper discovery; (4) Tactical considerations like decoy, deception and precision strike; (5) Transport, convoying and rescue; and (6) Sensor and communication networks.
