Abstract

New technology is entering the battlefield at a rapid pace, changing the way modern battle is conducted. This paper surveys the state of robotic systems, and identifies new technologies of war and the evolving military doctrine of the U.S. military. Our analysis is drawn from historical parallels and current publications. We conclude that the Department of Defense has adopted a high tempo, flexible doctrine that is capable of taking advantage of the evolving mission payloads of unmanned military systems.
