This is the home page for the NATO Science and and Technology Organization Research Task Group SAS-RTG-097 on Robots underpinning future NATO operations. The Task Group is an approved instrument of the NATO's Science & Technology Organization. The purpose of this group is to facilitate networking, bringing together academic and industrial robotics partners on one side, and military, security, search & rescue, and other users of robotics technologies on the other side. The goal is to help bridge the obvious gap between technology and user communities, and fulfill the objectives of the initiative. The networking will be performed:

  1. On a personal level, at workshops scheduled approximately once a year; 
  2. In the virtual space for more specialized subareas, called Virtual Strands. Participants are sought to contribute to virual strands activities.

Participation in SAS-RTG-097 activity is open to individuals and teams from the rather wide list of NATO Partner Nations. See NATO's Partner Policy Guidance from October 2011 for more details. Participants are expected to comply with NATO goals.

Next SAS-RTG-097 meeting is planned for Spring 2013. It will likely be in Paris and will be hosted by Mrs. Sonia Weill.

The activity is coordinated by the team from the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic led by Prof. Vaclav Hlavac, The secretary is Dr. Michal Reinstein,
