Paper Abstract

Autonomous robots for the battlefield offer a tantalizing alternative to manned warfare. These systems rely upon many well established technological areas. Near term applications of autonomous battlefield robots (ABRs) are possible in such mission areas as surveillance and communications support. Such more advanced applications as weapons and countermeasures control await at least the development of fault tolerant information processing resources. Several open research issues still limit the current realizable performance of ARBs. In spite of these limitations, ABRs should be implemented for near term applications to gain the systems experience necessary to construct more capable ABR systems.
