Abstract: Experiments evaluating Soldier performance using robotic assets provide information about what improvements in mission capability can be expected with the new technologies. However, subjective data, such as formal and informal interviews and questionnaires, can equally provide helpful insight into which new capabilities will be most welcomed and understood as valuable to mission success for each Soldier. This report focuses on subjective data obtained from several Soldiers at the FY11 SOURCE ATO field event regarding their views and opinions of robot use in the military. This data has been compiled to provide some basic guidelines helping to direct future research in human-robot interaction.
