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.
