Report No. ARL-TR-7215
Authors: Clifford C Swiecicki; Linda R Elliott; Robert Wooldridge
Date/Pages: February 2015; 152 pages
Abstract: This report describes the development, application, and results obtained from scenario-based structured interview items designed to support the concept development of autonomous and intelligent robot capabilities with a Soldier squad. Results will be used to validate and inform scenario development within a simulation platform. Eighteen Soldiers participated in these interviews and provided detailed feedback with regard to information and capability requirements, priorities of use, and recommendations for robot roles and responsibilities. The results are summarized in the report and detailed in appendixes sorted by topic area and Soldier group.
