As world-leading experts in creating capability to solve complex problems, accelerating these to reality with advanced test and evaluation and providing the assurance to achieve competitive advantage, we have the solution for you.

Report: Enacting Prototype Warfare

Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) technology is ‘now technology’ with immediate military utility which will evolve over time. Our detailed report explores the strategic logic for the military use of RAS, ethics, technology overview, implications and recommendations, alongside some use case scenarios.

Enacting Prototype Warfare
Our forces carry out tasks that are hazardous, costly or impractical for humans to undertake. Robotic and autonomous systems that operate in the maritime, land and air domains can provide significant operational advantage, while increasing safety, mission tempo and reducing the burden on troops, field workers, and first responders. We develop robots in a variety of sizes and with varying capabilities that provide protection and support to keep out of harm’s way.

We have a long heritage of research, experimentation and innovation across all domains. We offer a comprehensive approach to artificial intelligence and collaborative autonomy, from concept and design, through testing and evaluation, to platform integration; from training, safety and certification to vehicle support technologies.

The accelerating pace of technological developments will only serve to increase the role played by uncrewed vehicles and robots in delivering military capability. We see a wide range of new and developed applications – including those achieved by harnessing the power of multiple unmanned systems – operating together across environments.
