In artificial intelligence, the term autonomy implies bounded independent thought and action. As a fundamental principle, Simon’s Law of Bounded Rationality11 states that the actions of a program or robot are bounded by the information it has, the amount of time 11 Simon, Herbert A. 1996.

This will ensure that software issues do not get lost within a hardware-oriented, vehicle-centric acquisition process. Specifically, software should be designed with an open architecture structure to facilitate modification to adapt to evolving requirements and to add new capabilities after the platform has been deployed. The Task Force recommends that the Military Services structure autonomous systems acquisition programs to separate the autonomy software from the vehicle platform. The autonomy program should create a government-owned software package, with an open architecture, that is designed with published interfaces to enable modifications and expansion by any contactor, laboratory or government agency without having to go 5 DSB Task Force on Improvements to Services Contracting, March 2011; DSB Task Force on Fulfillment of Urgent Operational Needs, July 2009; DSB Task Force on Creating a DoD Strategic Acquisition Platform, April 2009; and DSB Task Force on Department of Defense Policies and Procedures for the Acquisition of Information Technology, March 2009.

While such initiatives may require negotiations with the existing platform prime-contractors to gain government control of proprietary software, these investments will likely pay off in the long run. In addition to the acquisition challenges associated with embedded software, significant attention must be directed at protecting this software from cyber threats during both development/acquisition and operations. While the Task Force recognizes the importance of addressing cyber security issues, we did not have the resources for a thorough examination of this issue.
