Abstract"As Objective Force weapon systems such as Future Combat System (FCS), Multi-Role Armament System (MRAAS), and robotic missile, gun, sensor and reconnaissance systems approach fielding, humans who must control these systems are faced with an extremelydifficult span of control and cognitive awareness problem in controlling these systems. This was amply demonstrated in a recent Future Combat Command and Control (FCC2) experiment at the Mounted Maneuver Battlespace Lab (MMBL).To establish effective human control over robotic systems, we must consider the development of one or more layers of autonomous agent control of the robotic systems. This could be considered as development of robotic squad and section leaders. Theseagents would control between 5 and 10 subordinate systems, such as sensors or guns, with minimal guidance from human controllers.CHI Systems will develop the technology required to perform robotic command and control for the FCS UOA. This technology will be derived from ongoing research for computer generated forces, which is aimed at developing autonomous commanders for simulationpurposes. The technology will be embodied within a decision aiding component designed for use with the MRAAS Fires application architecture, and will be scaleable from the individual vehicle to Unit of Action echelons. Full implementation of FCS UOA Robotic Control with other systems in the netted fires and FCS environment will provide a se
