SACT Programme on Autonomy

Technological change is advancing at an exponential rate. This is quite apparent in technologies such as autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, and robotics. Understanding these technologies and their potential impacts is significantly important for NATO.

The SACT Programme on Autonomy will develop and propose a common understanding of autonomy in NATO, analyze the future impact of autonomy on NATO operations, regarding all NATO domains, and influence capability development in NATO. The NATO C2COE will work closely with SACT to provide C2 subject matter expertise to programme content and subsequent activities.

The OPR at the NATO C2COE is Lieutenant Commander (USA N) Stephen Gray. He can be reached at
