“The Department of the Navy is creating an Unmanned Systems Roadmap to help integrate unmanned technologies into existing Navy acquisition, programmatic and operational plans.
The roadmap was an early task for the office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Unmanned Systems, which was created one year ago along with the position of Director of Unmanned Warfare Systems (OPNAV N99). Retired Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Frank Kelley was tapped at this time last year to serve as the first DASN Unmanned Systems and spoke about the first year on the job today at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s (AUVSI) annual defense conference.
Kelley said the roadmap would not include program-level schedules or requirements but rather would recommend time and resource investment options to help the Navy integrate unmanned with the rest of its portfolio.”
