CRUSER

  • Reaches across the Navy, Marine Corps, Department of Defense, academia, and industry

  • Collaborative environment for the advancement of unmanned systems education and research endeavors

  • Community of interest for unmanned systems in military and naval operations

  • Encompasses the successful research, education, and experimentation efforts in unmanned systems

  • An inclusive community for all disciplines

  • Conducts concept generation workshops for naval missions

  • Hosts technical symposia to address naval missions, and field experimentation to test selected technologies


At the direction of the Secretary of the Navy, the Naval Postgraduate School leverages its long-standing experience and expertise in the research and education of robotics and unmanned systems to support the Navy's mission. The Consortium for Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education and Research (CRUSER) serves as a vehicle to align currently disparate research efforts and integrate academic courses across discipline boundaries. CRUSER Charter Document (2017)

Prof Bundy

 

Dr. William F. Bundy 

Associate Provost for Warfighting Research and Development

U.S. Naval War College, Newport Rhode Island

 

 

ABSTRACT: Byron Reese offers a description of our entry into the Fourth Age of Technological Evolution. That social evolution is driven by the increasing adoption of smart robots, “thinking” computers and a society that has come to depend on and demand ever improving technologies. The accelerating adoption of technology is causing multiple revolutions in social, business and military affairs. According to Reese, “Technology has changed the face of warfare dozens of times in the past few thousand years…Robots and AI will change it again”.

In our seminar, we ask ourselves how will the defense establishment deliver sensors, control systems and weapons that are evolving on an accelerating basis. How will warfighters keep pace with “smarter – thinking” systems that communicate in natural language and hold deeper knowledge sets than human operators. Rather than years of development and testing, evolving systems and components are delivered to warfighters in “Amazon” speed, inserted in standard slots and launchers with “quick start” instructions, intuitive controls and natural language operation. Imagine receiving your new fire control processor in a box with a link to online installation instructions. Impossible. Well, we adopted online banking without formal training and operate smarter cars with voice commands.  Imagine commanding ship or fleet operations from a command center where battle management displays, video images and decision makers are informed by augmented reality and recommendations provided by – OSCAR, the voice of the battle management system. We’ll explore the art of the possible with a view toward warfare in the Fourth Age.

BIO: Dr. Bundy served in the Navy for more than 30 years prior to returning to the Naval War College as a Center for Naval Warfare Studies (CNWS) faculty member. He has led warfighting concept development and advanced research projects that have been deployed in the Fleet and the Joint Force. Dr. Bundy created the initial concept of operations for Navy Ballistic Missile Defense, warfighting concepts for the Ohio Class Guided Missile Submarine and recently contributed to introduction of Distributed Lethality in the Navy. He has mentored more than 330 war college graduate research students.

The Naval Postgraduate School is envisioning a new public-private facility near the main campus - the Sea, Land, Air Military Research (SLAMR) facility.  The SLAMR facility will be a multi-domain distributed environment for integrated operational robotic/autonomous system education and research.  We are looking for your help to shape the future of this facility!

NPS RoboDojo Website

The RoboDojo is located in Root Hall 125 A/B (On the library end of Root Hall)

The RoboDojo is a dynamic innovation space (located on NPS campus in Root Hall, Room 125) where students, staff, faculty, and friends can come 'tinker' and learn about robot components and systems. Whether you're five or seventy-five years old, the RoboDojo is designed to promote informal hands-on learning with open hours and volunteer mentors to help the NPS community learn about:

  • rapid prototyping (e.g, with 3D printers and laser cutters);
  • embedded computing (e.g., with Arduino and Raspberry Pi);
  • basic electronics (e.g., with various electronics and breadboard components);
  • robotic software programming (e.g., for Robot Operating System in Python);
  • and more!  

The RoboDojo also hosts various community-led workshops, including recent gatherings on topics ranging from Basics of Solidworks, Intro to Printed Circuit Boards, to Laser Cutting and Engraving, and a Raspberry Pi Workshop.  The RoboDojo represents a grassroots initiative to promote collaborative and community learning, so feel free to stop by and learn about robots!
