Following the draft circulation last October, the Army has finalized and released a report on robotics and their applicability within Army strategy and doctrine.

The Army’s “ Robotic and Autonomous Systems Strategy,” or RAS, released by the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command this week, details how the Army will incorporate emerging technologies into its force structure and the benefits these advancements provide.

The strategy outlines three primary goals:

An intellectual framework necessary to unify various RAS efforts and initiatives taking place within the Army
Give direction for future allocation of resources
Identify near-mature technologies that can benefit the future Army.
