The long term goal for unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) in the services is to act as force multiplier, to reduce risk to human personnel, and to enable new tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). UGVs are intended to support a wide range of mission types ranging from EOD, to reconnaissance, to maritime interdiction support, to logistics. While semi-autonomy and autonomy capabilities continue to increase in technology readiness level (TRL) and move towards deployment, there is a gap in the development of the systems used to plan missions that tightly incorporate UGVs. We propose to: 1. Enable Seamless Integration between mission commanders and unmanned assets 2. Develop a Scalable Interaction Model based on available robot assets, defined tactical missions, and real time in-the-field situation. 3. Develop a Tactical Scripting Language that enables translation from commanderf?Ts intent to UGV commands, leveraging a large base of work in the Unmanned Surface Vehicle community. 4. Move beyond simple, isolated examples of autonomous robot command and control to address the broad challenge of mission planning and management. 5. Demonstrate how the low-level JAUS standardization work in SAE AS-4 can enable more effective use of robotic systems exercising greater autonomy.
