Imagine the applications and implications of robotics and artificial intelligence in 2045

Plug and Play Military Robotics Vehicles

Describe your idea

Employ a suite of ruggedized commercial off the shelf robotics components with AI enhanced processing. Employ these capabilities as unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and unmanned Ground vehicles. Employ interchangeable payload packages to employ sensors, jammers, guns, rockets or grenades, whichever is appropriate to the tactical situation.

Common interfaces are needed across the Services so a Marine Corps bot can use Army mission packages and components.

What makes this idea new or different?

We have up until this point built single-purpose systems with a few payloads each, each one employing different software and hardware. Adopting a common software framework and common hardware standards would reduce costs and enhanced flexibility.

What will be the implications of this idea?

Reduced costs and common standards across the DoD would free up resources and allow improvements to be instituted as block product improvements. We would also not have to pay for custom software and hardware for each variant as we do now.

Soldiers pack their kit based on mission requirements. Robots should do the same thing.

The mantra for design in the future will be "modular, robust, and upgradable."
