The NATO Science and Technology Board recognizes the ever-increasing importance of unmanned autonomous systems for security and defense applications. These systems will enhance situational awareness by providing unprecedented sensing capabilities, information extraction, and precision actuation. As autonomous unmanned systems evolve, new problems in cyber security will emerge that are difficult to attack with conventional methods. The problems will require new techniques that are more adaptable and flexible to provide system and mission resiliency.
This Specialists Meeting will provide attendees a forum to discuss state-of-the-art and emerging disruptive technologies, developments, concepts and operational solutions to ensure the mission of unmanned and autonomous systems of the future. The combination of specialists from various technical and non-technical domains in NATO allows a universal and unbiased discussion.
The NATO Science and Technology Board extends a special welcome to those with tactical experience with unmanned systems. Our goal is to join the user community with the researchers to develop a common road map for future research activities in NATO.
