Abstract:

U.S. and allied combat operations continue to highlight the value of unmanned systems in the modern combat environment. Combatant Commanders CCDRs and warfighters value the inherent features of unmanned systems, especially their persistence, versatility, and reduced risk to human life. The U.S. military Services are fielding these systems in rapidly increasing numbers across all domains air, ground, and maritime. Unmanned systems provide diverse capabilities to the joint commander to conduct operations across the range of military operations environmental sensing and battlespace awareness chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear CBRN detection counter-improvised explosive device C-IED capabilities port security precision targeting and precision strike. Furthermore, the capabilities provided by these unmanned systems continue to expand. This document provides a DoD vision for the continuing development, fielding, and employment of unmanned systems technologies. Since publication of the last DoD Roadmap in 2009, the military Services have released individual Service roadmaps or related strategy documents. This roadmap defines a common vision, establishes the current state of unmanned systems in today s force, and outlines a strategy for the common challenges that must be addressed to achieve the shared vision.
