Terminology for Specifying the Autonomy Levels for Unmanned Systems: Version 1.0
This document, produced by the Federal Agencies Ad Hoc Autonomy Levels for Unmanned Systems (ALFUS) Working Group (WG), lists the terminology to support the Group's main objective, the definitions of the unmanned system autonomy levels and the metrics for measuring the autonomy levels of the unmanned systems.The WG was formed and participated in, on a voluntary basis, by interested government practitioners and support contractors in the field of unmanned systems. The WG produces its outcome based on Group consensus. The terms should be defined in a generic way to support unmanned vehicles of various domains, including aerial, ground, and water. The terminology effort should be an evolving process. In this version of the document, besides maintaining the generic nature of the terms, we also provide domain specific extensions to support a specific program, the Army Future Combat Systems.
