                Robotics & UMS User Mod Plan (2003 & Beyond)
                                     Purpose
•The Engineer Robotics and Unmanned Systems User Modernization and Action Plan
will be updated annually to coincide with and mirror the Department of Defense (DOD)
Joint Robotics Program (JRP) Master Plan (MP).

•This document will be used as a management and planning tool to by Engineers and
the Robotics Community to:
     • (1) Establish definitive, user robotics and UGV operational concepts and
     requirements for the Engineer Proponent

    • (2) Identify and pursue critical technologies to satisfy these requirements
        •Through S&T (STO) efforts
        •Emerging commercial technological advances

    • (3) Provide a list of priorities

                                                                                    Cont:

           Robotics & UMS User Mod Plan (2003 & Beyond)
                     Purpose Continued:
• (4) Coordinate/capture all Objective Engineer Force UGV requirements

• (5) Provide a Road Map for the Engineer DCD, S&T community, and the
Program Manager to focus our limited assets on Robotic capabilities needed now;
and to define the future Robotics capabilities needed by the user

                    Engineer Robotics Vision
• The Engineer School supports incorporating Robotic applications on
trucks, trailers, and platforms to provide a standoff capability during
hazardous missions.
• The 4 points that must be sold to Army decision makers to justify why a
required operational capability should be roboticized:

    –It reduces soldier risk/exposure to threats
    –It improves deployability and/or reduces the footprint of the force
    –It is cost and operationally effective
    –It does not create an operational, maintenance and interoperability
    burden on gaining units

          If the answer to all of these questions is yes, it is a viable robotic
requirement. Otherwise, it is a gray area requiring additional analysis to
justify proceeding.
