Hear from DSTL, UK MoD and TARDEC, US Army at Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems 2019 as They Work Closely Together

SMi reports: Peter Stockel, DSTL and Dr. Robert Sadowski, US Army RDECOM TARDEC to present at 2019’s Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems conference.

London, United Kingdom, December 22, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Following the communique signature between the UK and the US in 2014, the UK MoD (DSTL) have been working closely with their American counterparts (TARDEC, ARDEC) to develop effective demonstrations and assessments of new autonomous technologies. The Coalition Assured Autonomous Resupply (CAAR) is an example of such collaboration. This demonstration showed capability in unmanned tactical resupply throughout the "Last Mile" - the final, most difficult, and dangerous stage of logistics support to soldiers in a combat zone.

Peter Stockel, Innovation Autonomy Lead, DSTL, and Dr. Robert Sadowski, Army Chief Roboticist Robotics ST, US Army RDECOM TARDEC, will both be presenting keynote addresses at SMi's Military Robotics & Autonomous Systems conference, taking place in London on the 3rd and 4th April 2019.

Dr. Robert Sadowski will present: "Enhanced Robotic Modularity: Exploitation of Sustainable RAS." The presentation will cover “Analysing the advantages of using modular robotics for multiple combat scenarios”; “Enhancing the use of modular robotics for increased sustainability”; “Future advancements and gains from man-unmanned teaming” and “The use of the Modular Advanced Armed Robotic System (MAARS).”

Mr. Peter Stockel will present: "Strengthening Manoeuvrability and Sustainability of Last Mile Operations with Robotics and Autonomous Systems: Coalition Assured Autonomous Resupply (CAAR)." His presentation will cover “The current position and assessments of CAAR”; “Integration challenges for RAS use in a coalition scenario”; “Enhancing RAS capabilities to maximise manoeuvrability of resupply missions”; and “Supporting logistics and survivability: reducing risks to military personnel and increasing efficiency of last mile logistics.”
