R2C2 Research

Artificial intelligence, autonomy, and robotics will play a major role on the battlefield of the future and there are exciting new developments taking place in industry and academia that could advance the military’s integration of these technologies and contribute to soldier readiness. The Army Research Laboratory creates partnerships with organizations pursuing complimentary research topics. Specific topics of interest are:

  • Improving ground robot mobility and maneuverability
  • Accelerating AI decision-making
  • Increasing network security
  • Enhancing human-machine collaboration
  • Boosting power and propulsion while reducing payload
