|Summary||This research proposes to apply the Systems Engineering (SE) methodology to explore different aspects of planning, instrumenting, conducting and reporting the results of the developmental tests and early operational assessments of unmanned systems (UxS) possessing different levels of autonomy (LoA). UxS autonomy is defined by its ability of sensing, perceiving, analyzing, communicating, planning, decision-making, and acting/executing to achieve its goals as assigned by its human operator through designed human-robot interaction. The intent is to consider different classifications of UxS' LoA, including Non-Contextual Autonomy Potential and Autonomous Levels for UxS, and transfer them into the domain of novel capabilities. These capabilities will the form a framework for the functional analysis and decomposition and serve as a basis for developing SE verification and validation procedures including metrics, processes, and tools for evaluation/measurement.|
