US Army seeks industry white papers to support robotic C-UAS platform capability

The U.S. Army’s Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO) has issued a Request for White Papers (RFWP) to support the Army Futures Command (AFC) team to find and prototype integrated solutions for robotics in order to develop and manage a human-machine integrated formation (H-MIF) architecture that will guide emerging Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) capabilities.

“This team will utilize demonstrations, prototyping, testing and evaluations of existing and new technologies using soldier touch points that will enable valuable warfighter feedback with the systems to enable lessons learned and drive system improvements. The team will address current robotic safety limitations that do not support an operational leave behind capability. They will fully characterize and address any issues associated with the network and command and control (C2) aspects of robotic systems, their payloads, and H-MIF interaction requirements.

“They will define priorities and consistent requirements paths for robotic payloads; align operational use cases with the maturation roadmap of enabling technology and the robotic behaviors; and promote rapid procurement of the latest industry RAS and enabler investments to fill critical technology gaps.”

“The RCCTO invites interested entities to provide comments, inputs, and technical write ups for products/solutions that could meet or exceed these objectives for a Counter-small Unmanned Aerial System (C-sUAS) solution/capability that will be integrated into robotic platforms as part of the overarching H-MIF deliverable. “

Deadline for response is April 12, 2024.
