Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap FY2013-2038 – Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Drones, Unmanned Maritime Systems, Technologies, Logistics, Support, Training, International Foreign Sales
Unmanned systems continue to deliver new and improved battlefield capabilities to the warfighter. While demand for unmanned systems unabated day continues today, a number of factors will influence unmanned program development in the future.
The purpose of this plan is to have a vision and strategy for the further development, production, testing, training, operation and maintenance of articulate unmanned systems technology in DoD. This “Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap” represents a technological vision for the next 25 years and outlines continuing operations and DoD and industry technologies to intelligently and affordable with this vision.
Chapter 1: Introduction
This chapter explains the roadmap objective and scope. It examines the current unmanned environment from an inventory and budget perspective, while also examining the possible future environment. The chapter includes an operational vignette showing potential future opportunities with the help of some of the later in this Roadmap technologies
Chapter 2: Strategic Planning and Policy
This chapter explains the structure, direction, and. .-based guidance from DoD leadership towards the planning and development of unmanned systems
Chapter 3: CCDR mission and Capability Needs
A joint perspective emerges in this section with a discussion of the mission of the opportunities unique for unmanned systems and an explanation of the requirements process used to develop deliberately the potential for improved efficiency, effectiveness, and reduce the chances of survival and the burden on manpower at lower costs, while still meeting future operational needs . The forecasts indicate that future unmanned systems must
Provide opportunities efficiently through such attributes like modularity, interoperability, integration with manned systems, and the use of advanced technologies. Effectively through features such as increased automation, improved performance and flexible use of the possibilities. Be More survivable in contested environments through improved and resilient communications, enhanced security against tampering, and the design of the system
Chapter 4: Technologies for Unmanned Systems
A number of key areas of interest to it. improve to continue to reduce lifecycle costs across all systems, including unmanned systems technology reflect DoD shift in strategic priorities and address of the obligation
Chapter 5. Operating Environment
This chapter describes the operating environments of unmanned systems, which are critical in determining system performance flexibility (eg., an appropriate level of automation, agility, communication options) needed to accomplish the mission.
Chapter 6: Logistics and Support
The rapid development and fielding large numbers and types of unmanned systems present DoD maintenance with a significant challenge. This chapter discusses the necessary transition from supporting the immediate warfighter capability requirements to create an affordable, long term sustainment command environment using a flexible mix of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), other contractors and biological support of logistic support targets reach
Chapter 7: training
The current situation and the forces that the training environment are similar to those which have shaped the logistics environment
Chapter 8. International Cooperation.
This section provides DoD’s efforts to cooperative research, development, test and evaluation, and regulatory / standard agreements of defense technologies and systems with foreign partners, as well as the procurement of defense articles, including systems and services from foreign partners. DoD objectives and methods are explained.
