Paper Abstract

The modern combat theater is being populated by an increasing number of unmanned platforms that are operated in a wide variety of missions. These platforms, like manned platforms in joint operations, have to operate in concert as an integrated force. The operation of large numbers of unmanned platforms in a specific mission requires the use of autonomous platforms which can operate without a tight operator control. Such a paradigm enables a single operator (or a small group of operators) to control a large force of unmanned platforms conducting a mission similarly to the HQ command-support that a manned force will be receiving. The need to increase the autonomous capabilities of unmanned platforms operating in an integrated force promotes the development of Semi Automated Forces (SAF) and Fully Automated Forces (FAF).
