The U.S. Army Robotic and Autonomous Systems Strategy
From the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army
Winning wars today and in the future will depend on adaptive leaders, skilled Soldiers, and well-trained teams empowered with advanced technologies. The Army Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Strategy describes how the Army will integrate new technologies into future organizations to help ensure overmatch against increasingly capable enemies. Consistent with the 2015 National Military Strategy, the RAS Strategy describes how the Army will use human- machine collaboration to meet the JCS Chairman’s goal of increasing operational options for Joint Force commanders. The integration of RAS will help future Army forces, operating as part of Joint teams, to defeat enemy organizations, control terrain, secure populations, and consolidate gains. RAS capabilities will also allow future Army forces to conduct operations consistent with the concept of multi-domain battle, projecting power outward from land into maritime, space, and cyberspace domains to preserve Joint Force freedom of movement and action. Executing this strategy will require Army leaders to think clearly about how to integrate RAS into operations; learn through rigorous experimentation; analyze what we learn to focus and prioritize efforts; and implement RAS-enabled concepts across doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, facilities and policy.
Because enemies will attempt to avoid our strengths, disrupt advanced capabilities, emulate technological advantages, and expand efforts beyond physical battlegrounds, the Army must continuously assess RAS efforts and adapt. The Army will prioritize investments based on how RAS capabilities contribute to interim solutions to the Army Warfighting Challenges. (http://www.arcic.army.mil/initiatives/armywarfightingchallenges). Pursuing RAS allows Army Soldiers and teams to defeat capable enemies and maintain overmatch across five capability objectives: increase situational awareness; lighten the warfighters’ physical and cognitive workloads; sustain the force with increased distribution, throughput, and efficiency; facilitate movement and maneuver; and increase force protection.
Success depends on Army leaders sharing a common vision and collaborating to determine how best to integrate RAS into joint operations. Delivering RAS capabilities will not be easy. And because RAS is a relatively new range of capabilities, execution will require Army leaders to be open to new ideas and encourage bottom-up learning from Soldiers and units in experimentation and the Army’s warfighting assessments.
