This document provides a DoD vision for the continuing development, fielding, and employment of unmanned systems tehnologies. This roadmap defines a common vision, establishes the current state of unmanned systems in today’s force, and outlines a strategy for the common challenges that must be addressed to achieve the shared vision. This Roadmap leverages individual Service roadmaps and visions, and identifies challenges that might stand in the way of maturing those visions to a shared Joint version. The vignetters provided at the beginning of the Roadmap give the reader a glimpse into potential unmanned systems capablities. The chapters that follow the vignetters identify core areas that are challenges for further growth in unmanned systems and chart out science, technology, and policy paths that will enable unmanned systems to fulfill an expanding role in supporting the warfighter. Success in each of these areas is critical to achieve DoD’s shared vision and realize the full potential of unmanned systems at an affordable cost.
