Developing Innovative Systems to Reduce Manpower Requirements and Human Exposure to Hazardous Missions

Government robotic systems capabilities in all categories are advancing rapidly due to the substantial amount of investment and resources being dedicated to research, development, and testing. Robots will be doing a significant amount of the dull, dangerous, or dirty jobs in the future to reduce the need for manpower and keep government personnel out of harm’s way. This insight is a synopsis of where robotic systems are today and how they will mature in the future.

Key Findings
-Between 2001 and 2012, military personnel expenditures increased from $billion to $billion annually. Autonomous robotic systems are being developed to reduce manpower costs as well as to protect military personnel from dangerous missions, where and when applicable.
-Unmanned aerial systems (UASs) are the most advanced of all robotics systems. The US government has placed a focus on improving/increasing autonomy in UAS operation to reduce manpower requirements.
-In the near future, dismounted soldiers will be equipped with both exoskeletons and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) that lighten their load, allow them to maneuver more quickly, reduce the size of the ground logistics tail, and decrease the number of soldiers required to support a military mission.
-Humanoid robots are being developed to work side by side with human counterparts to execute tasks such as firefighting and disaster search, rescue, and cleanup. A significant amount of research is devoted to developing algorithms for robust human-robot interaction.
-Microrobots could revolutionize military medicine. Researchers are developing biocompatible, microscopic robots that will be able to flow through the human bloodstream and detect and then eradicate pathogens before they can attack the immune system.
-Appliqués will become more prevalent as government spending decreases. Agencies will want to be able to transform existing air, ground, and sea platforms into unmanned systems to minimize development costs while protecting personnel from potentially dangerous situations.
-Technological advances in autonomy and artificial intelligence (AI) will enable government robotic systems to operate more independently and dynamically. However, when lives are at stake, humans will remain in the mission execution decision loop.

Purpose
-The purpose of this market insight is to discuss the current state and future of robotics and robotic systems in the US government.
-US government robotics are separated into the following segments:
oUnmanned aerial systems (UASs)
oUnmanned ground systems (UGSs)
oUnmanned maritime systems (UMSs)
oHumanoid and legged systems
oMiniature robots
oRobotic exoskeletons and prosthetics
oAppliqués
-In addition, the concepts of autonomy and AI, and how they relate to the future of US government robotics, are discussed.
-Where applicable, planned funding for US government robotic systems is discussed.
-All budget information was derived from the Department of Defense (DoD) Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 President’s Budget (PB).
