Introduction

In 2001, in an effort to remove Warfighters from dangerous tasks, Congress mandated that the Armed Forces have a goal such that by 2015,  1/3 of the operational ground combat vehicles are unmanned. Kairos Autonomi has worked diligently to make that goal achievable. As the deadline is upon us and the technology exists, we'd like to begin a discussion as to where the industry is with respect to this goal and what should be done to meet it.

RIRAK Whitepaper: Removing WarFighters from Dangerous Tasks ...Now!

RIRAK Whitepaper

Executive SummaryUomo

 

By utilizing Rapidly Installable, Robotic Appliqué Kits (RIRAK) as the initial volume-deployed unmanned ground vehicle system, the U.S. government can immediately achieve the 2001 Congressional mandate of 1/3 of operational ground combat vehicles unmanned by 2015. Nearly a decade and a half after the mandate, soldiers are still being killed / injured performing tasks that could have been done by a robot.  The Kairos Autonomi Pronto4 Uomo (a RIRAK) exists right now and would allow commanders to remove Soldiers from harm’s way through a 10 minute installation within an already deployed wheeled vehicle. The current RIRAK can be improved over time through dedicated R&D from TARDEC, MCWL or other DoD agencies. This white paper presents the case for the RIRAK approach and its near immediate availability for usage in achievement of the 2001 mandate while providing a viable choice for removing a soldier from harm’s way.
