Report: Army’s CDID Eyes Robotic Technologies for Precision Strikes Against Enemies

The U.S. Army's capabilities development and integration directorate has teamed up with the National Advanced Mobility Consortium to develop autonomous system and robotic technologies intended for precision strike operations, Military.com reported Monday.

The CDID-consortium partnership aims to equip military servicemen with tools that will work to conduct precision engagement in close urban terrain, said Col. Tom Nelson, chief of CDID's robotics requirement division.

The partnership will have between now and April to conceptualize precision strike platforms, with the goal of presenting either prototypes or proposals at the National Defense Industry Association's National Robotic Conference.

NAMC provides the federal government with research, development, prototyping and manufacture services to build manned and unmanned military ground vehicle systems and associated capabilities.
