The future operational environment will be characterized by the employment of Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAxS) on the battlefield. Contemporary technology is still not mature enough to support this vision and additional development and experiments are necessary. In particular, in the area of the interaction between the human beings and robots, taking into consideration the role of the military Command and Control (C2) Operational Function.

Having in place a new era of operationalization of systems with certain level of autonomy has implication in the whole spectrum of military activities. Training in the military domain as one of the key pillars of preparedness of Armed Forces must adequately reflect this phenomena. The article deals with all aspects of training related to Autonomous Systems (AS) and human being (HB). Firstly terminology of trainee and trainer in the AS and HB perspective is explained. Secondly factors that influe...

There exists a connection between a growing number of Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAxS) and a number of possible security challenges. The likelihood that swarms of UAxS will be employed in high populated mega-city environments in the long and mid-term exacerbates these future challenges. The problem is two-fold: UAxS are likely to be used as additional capability for friendly forces, but they are also to be considered as possible threat. The challenges that an autonomous system poses depend not...

Autonomous system (AS) will be in close future one of the main driver of progress in our society. However operationalization of AS in the military domain is still challenging because of not speaking the same language by all actors involved. The article deals with the importance of using the same existing standards and best practices in all phases of AS life cycle. Testing and deployment phase was the main object of the study. Gap analysis of common languages and standards related to entities in ...

Systems with some level of Autonomy Capabilities or Semi-Autonomous Systems SAS are already an integral part of our life. Fully Autonomous Systems AS without any human in the loop are more commonly seen in the civilian sphere. However the military still needs to make a gigantic step toward to implementation of AS in the battlefield. Modeling and Simulation M&S and its techniques might help to understand us more quickly in the save environment the potential consequences of ASs deployment from the...

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO is dealing with possible future threats, which can be envisioned for the operational scenarios in the next twenty years. Allied Command for Transformation ACT is in charge to conduct Concept Development & Experimentation CD&E cycle for NATO, and a project named Counter Unmanned Autonomous Systems --- CUAxS was initiated with the aim to deliver to the NATO Military Authorities a concept that provides taxonomy matrix, threats analysis and future capabili...

A first Modelling and Simulation for Autonomous System Workshop (MESAS 2014) was organized by NATO Modelling and Simulation Centre of Excellence in Rome 2014. The main findings were related to the missing ontologies for AS deployment, a legal and cultural gap in the AS deployment and the request to launch the cross panel project under NATO Science and Technology Organization aimed at the AS development supported by modelling and simulation. The article is focused on the main findings form the 20...

A request for interdisciplinary project is a permanent call from all Panels working under NATO Science and Technology Organization such as System Analysis and Studies and Modelling and Simulation Group. M&S as a scientific discipline has already proved its priceless role in Concept, Development and Experimentation throughout any domain. To investigate on potential integration of Autonomous System into operational field, the only low cost solution seems to be experimentation in synthetic distribu...

The Joint Battle Management Language (JBML) is being developed as an unambiguous language for tasking and reporting. This paper summarizes significant US national contributions to the current SISO Coalition Battle Management Language (C-BML) Product Development Group activities. It focuses on application of the wellknown principles of BML in the joint warfighting context to enable command and control of simulated Joint and Coalition forces. The JBML design is characterized by three layers that e...

Abstract : Using a multi-robot system in military operations poses many control problems. Thus, the ability to formulate clear and unambiguous commands for the robots is extremely desirable. To ensure that the operator expresses clearly what needs to be done, we use Battle Management Language (BML) to command multi-robot systems. BML was developed by the military research community to express short, unambiguous orders readable by both humans and machines. BML allows the operator to command the m...

Service-oriented architectures promise easier integration of functionality in the form of web services into operational systems than is the case with interface-driven system-oriented approaches. Although the Extensible Markup Language (XML) enables a new level of interoperability among heterogeneous systems, XML alone does not solve all interoperability problems users contend with when integrating services into operational systems. To manage the basic challenges of service interoperation, we dev...

Technical Activity in the NATO Modelling and Simulation Group (MSG–145) for operationalization of new Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) C2SIM standard is approaching its completion. This second generation of C2SIM standards from SISO for coalitions to interoperate their national command and control (C2) and simulation systems is ready for balloting and being the basis of a STANAG. This standard for synthetic battlespace can have a great impact on the effectiveness of coal...

Military Autonomous Systems are one of the critical elements in the current and future operations. System with a level of autonomy is known in the military for more than 50 years. However fully autonomous systems have not been yet fully operationalized. Taken as a military capability, autonomous system must be analyzed, designed and implemented to reflect all Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership, Personnel, Facilities, Interoperability and Information (DOTMLPFI) aspects. The fi...
