#DEFAus18 Idea Pitch – LOGBOTs: Unmanned Logistic Vehicle Swarms


Jacob Choi has an idea

Why should combat service support remain aggregated and secured in manned logistic nodes? Swarms of Unmanned Logistic Vehicles are a mobile caching system, where the static footprint of a doctrinal Combat Services Support Team is dispersed on dozens of Unmanned Logistic Vehicles – LOGBOTs (Logistic Robots) operating closer to the dependency than fixed logistic bases. This avoids the doctrinal Distribution Point concept which historically is manned trucks returning to a Forward Operating Base. Swarmed Unmanned Logistic Vehicles will enable dependencies down to section level to be continuously resupplied by small, unmanned vehicles capable of moving, hiding and caching independently throughout the battlespace, without exposing manned logistic nodes to enemy targeting.
