“Requests for proposals will be going out in 2016 for two small robots intended for mounted and dismounted troops and a squad mission support vehicle later In the decade, Scott Davis, program executive officer for combat support and combat service support, said at an Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International conference in Arlington, Virginia.”
