Abstract:

This report provides the synopsis of a five year collaborative program of research between DST Group and the University of South Australia in the study of autonomous systems concepts. The purpose of the program is to establish a methodological means of technology foresight, to assess how future technologies shape or contribute to performance in autonomous systems and to identify key technologies of greatest impact. We propose a new model for the categorisation and assessment of autonomy, which provides a systematic and auditable way to explore emerging technologies for autonomous system by means of parametric investigation. Outcomes might then inform decision makers in Defence and National Security to shape the future of policy, strategy, emerging concepts, and force development in autonomous systems and their related technologies.
