A June 1989 report jointly authored by the Committee on Advanced Robotics for Air Force Operations (Air Force Studies Board),
and the Commission on Engineering and Technical Systems (National Research Council)

Projected manpower shortages, shorter weapon response times, and the severe environmental
conditions anticipated in combat make the use of robots more attractive in the U.S. armed
forces. To help the Air Force assess the potential for operational use of robots, the
committee (1) evaluated current and potential uses of advanced robotics to support Air
Force systems, (2) recommended the most effective aplications of advanced robotics, (3)
identified high payoff areas for research and development, particularly at the component
level; and (4) assessed the potential effects that robots will have on acquisition,
logistics, and manpower considerations, such as education and training.
