Agility in tactical decision-making and mission management is a key attribute for enabling teams of heterogeneous unmanned vehicles UxV to successfully manage the fog of war with its inherently complex, ambiguous, and time-challenging conditions. This agility requires effective operator-autonomy teaming including the achievement of trusted collaboration and the flexible, high-level tasking required for team task sharing and decision superiority. A tri-service team has conducted Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering ASDR and E sponsored research focused on instantiating an Intelligent Multi-UxV Planner with Adaptive CollaborativeControl Technologies IMPACT by combining flexible play calling for task delegation, bi-directional human-autonomy interaction, advanced cooperative control algorithms, intelligent agent reasoning, and autonomic technologies to enable effective single operator command and control C2 of cooperative multi-UxV missions.
