USMA Cadets Collaborate to Enhance Soldier-Robot Teaming
U.S. Military Academy cadets conducted joint field experiments with Army researchers on the development of enhanced Soldier-robot teaming. The academy’s Robotics Research Center, with support from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as DEVCOM, Army Research Laboratory, conducted experiments at the lab’s robotics research area, an approximately 700-acre site just north of Baltimore. The Robotics Research Collaborative Campus, known as R2C2, is a unique space the lab leases for experimentation and research operations. The center is the U.S. Military Academy’s premier resource for expertise and academic scholarship in the field of robotics. Cadets have been working with the laboratory as part of the Distributed Collaborative Intelligent Systems and Technology, or DCIST, Collaborative Research Alliance on incorporating multi-Soldier-multi-robot teaming capabilities to the ARL ground and aerial autonomy software stacks.
