US Army seeks industry input on robotics and sensors

19 August 2019

The US Army Futures Command is issuing a solicitation request to industry to collect information on emerging robotics and sensor technologies for small tactical units under the incipient Smart Targeting Environment for Lower Level Assets (STELLA) programme.

STELLA technologies will enable soldiers to use robotics to rapidly employ, build, and share target data over multiple domains, accelerating the detection, acquisition, and identification of a target.

The programme is led by Army Futures Command̻᾿s Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC), which will imminently release a request for information (RFI) to industry.

We᾿re developing an efficient system so there is a soldier in the loop making a decision much more quickly on what needs to be engaged," said Osie David, a chief engineer within CCDC᾿s centre for command, control, communications, computers, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR).
