Abstract:

The role of the operator in future uninhabited military vehicles UMVs will be quite different from that of the operators of current vehicles, such as the Predator. Future UMVs will contain associate symptoms that will incorporate varying levels of autonomy and dynamic function allocation as basic operating principles. These principles will enable the UMV operator and the associate to form a team consisting of two crew members -- one human and one electronic, although teams of multiple humans and multiple electronic crew members are certainly possible. 6 figures, 21 refs.
