DoD Instructs Defense Science Board to Convene Task Force on Autonomous Threats

Michael Griffin

Michael Griffin, the Defense Department‘s undersecretary for research and engineering, recently instructed the Defense Science Board to convene a task force that would evaluate the current and long-term abilities of U.S. forces to counter the threat posed by physical as well as digital autonomous systems.

The task force must investigate potential counter-autonomy solutions across all combat domains and address a variety of issues such as understanding the full spectrum of autonomous threats, identifying and filling the gaps in U.S. counter-autonomy capabilities, and determining appropriate acquisition, testing and training methodologies for counter-autonomy solutions, Griffin, a 2018 Wash100 awardee, said in a memo that he issued on June 18.

Griffin expects the study to take from nine to 12 months to complete and a final report to be published no more than three months thereafter.
