For many years, the U.S. Army has been monitoring issues raised by autonomous weapons to assure that military doctrine remains enforced. Thus, weapons developers continue to advance autonomous systems in line with the manned-unmanned teaming and human-machine interface frameworks, as it is the Pentagon’s utmost importance to guarantee that any and all decisions relating to the use of lethal force are left to humans. 

The manned-unmanned teaming and human-machine interface combines human decision-making with machine-enabled autonomy, presenting a completely new swift operational dynamic. The objective is to utilize machines for processing, analysis, and procedural tasks and leave the decision making to a human.
