Marine Corps Times: USMC Seeks Autonomous Machines for Battlefield Operations

Army-RoboticsThe U.S. Marine Corps plans to conduct field operations alongside a swarm of gun-wielding micro-drones, driverless cars and self-unloading supply aircraft, Marine Corps Times reported Tuesday.

Matthew Schehl writes a panel of industry experts discussed at the Sea-Air-Space expo how U.S. troops could trust autonomous machines and develop strategies for drones that will potentially remove the need for human operators.

“We need to optimize unmanned systems and think about to what degree we are going to allow these systems to be fully autonomous,” said Frank Kelley, deputy assistant navy secretary for unmanned systems.

Schehl added USMC will look to integrate machines that act independently after they receive a task from a commander.
