Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap FY 2011-2036 – Updated Multi Service Vision for Development, Fielding, Employment of Unmanned Aerial and Ground Systems, UAS, UAV, Drones, Autonomy airspace
This document provides a DoD vision for the development, fielding, and employment of unmanned systems technologies. Since the publication of the latest DoD Roadmap in 2009, have released the soldiers Services individual service roadmaps or related strategic documents. This roadmap defines a common vision, represents the current state of unmanned systems in the current power, and outlines a strategy for common challenges that must be addressed to achieve the shared vision.
US and allied combat operations continue to highlight the value of unmanned systems in the modern combat environment. Combatant Commanders (CCDRs) and warfighters appreciate the inherent features of unmanned systems, especially their persistence, versatility, and less risk to human life. The US military services are fielding these systems in rapidly increasing numbers in all domains: air, land, and maritime. Unmanned systems offer several options for the joint commander to conduct operations across the range of military operations: environmental sensing and battlespace awareness; chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) detection; -Counter improvised explosive device (C-IED) capabilities; port security; focus precision; and precision strike. Moreover, the possibilities further expand these unmanned systems.
The Department of Defense (DoD) has been successful in the rapidly developing and fielding of unmanned systems. DoD will continue to focus on rapid response to CCDR requirements, while systems are acquired initiatives1 the new wide Efficiencies under DoD. In fiscal climate facing the Nation, DoD, in consultation with industry, have investment and business practices to drive to pursue lower life-cycle costs for unmanned systems. Affordability will be treated as a key performance parameter (KPP) is equal to, if not more important than, schedule and technical performance. DoD will work with the industry to continue to invest in unmanned systems technologies while providing incentives for industry to demonstrate to implement cost-saving measures and rewarding industry members who routinely exemplary performance.
