Abstract:

Current Department of Defense test and evaluation capabilities and methodologies are insufficient to address testing of weapon systems operating in non-deterministic and unscripted modes characteristic of the unmanned and autonomous system. Task complexity and adaptability to the environment are critical for evaluation of unmanned and autonomous performance. This represents a new challenge for the test and evaluation community. Verification of system performance and interactions will require the tester to understand the nuances of multiple technical domains such as physicalBattlespace, informationknowledge, and cognitivesocial.
