US Army to Present Advances in Human-Machine Teaming at MRAS USA 2022

The Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems USA Conference will feature briefings on how human-machine teaming will enhance the operational and institutional effectiveness of the US Army, international allies, and its partners By Phoebe Grinter / 24 May 2022

MRAS USASAE Media Group has announced that branches of the US Army will be sharing insight into their developments in human-machine teaming at the Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems (MRAS) USA Conference, in Arlington, VA, June 20-21, 2022.

Inside the US Army’s plan for autonomous weapons is the idea to leverage and integrate the best attributes of both human cognition and machine-enabled autonomy.

“The guidance that we’ve received from our most senior leaders is to use capabilities like artificial intelligence, or advanced robotics, to augment soldiers, not necessarily to replace them,” Maj. Gen. John Rafferty, director of Army Futures Command’s Long Range Precision Fires Cross-Functional Team, commented in an interview.*

The upcoming Military Robotics and Autonomous USA Conference will feature in-depth briefings on how human-machine teaming in the future will enhance the operational and institutional effectiveness of the US Army, international allies, and its partners.

Free attendance for US Military & DOD Personnel – to apply, please contact Tom Ter Haar at [email protected] Register here>

The speakers and their presentations covering human-machine teaming include:

  • US Army Robotics Requirements for Future Ground Operations – presented by Colonel Rob Ryan, Director, Robotics Requirements Division, Maneuver Capability Development Integration Directorate (MCDID), US Army Futures Command
  • Robotics at West Point – presented by Colonel Christopher Korpela, Director of the Robotics Research Center, US Military Academy at West Point
  • Special Operation and Robotics Teaming in Contested Environments – presented by Major Samuel Albahari, Project Officer: Artificial Intelligence for Small Unit Maneuver, US Special Operations Command

With extensive support from the US Army and wider Department of Defense (DoD), and an unrivalled speaker line-up, the agenda for Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems USA 2022 will provide key updates on the enormous investment in land robotics from US forces and international militaries, with the aim to increase warfighter lethality and remove soldiers from dangerous situations.
