The Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle project continues to evolve. Stated objective is a crew of 2. But if it is optionally manned - meaning some of the vehicles could have Zero crew - why not aim for an autonomous vehicle with one vehicle commander on board?



And, as is often the case, the Israelis are ahead of the curve

IronVision Helmet


Can't help but think that the IronVision Helmet in conjunction with the RMs jetsuit and a Loyal Wingman version of an armed UAS might make for an interesting combination.

To clarify: Loyal Wingman is a project from Boeing Australia. The idea is to accompany manned aircraft as their...uh...wingman.

What you're suggesting here is Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T), which a bunch of agencies around the world are looking into. MUM-T isn't specific to air either - the US Army and USMC are looking into it for logistics like having robotic "mules" carrying squad gear and patrolling with the troops.

Thanks for setting me straight Dimsum.

So Loyal Wingman would be the Air Force variant of MUM-T?
