Abstract: Interoperability standards are a central theme in the realm of unmanned systems. The importance of interoperability continues to grow as more unmanned systems are fielded - including ground, air, surface, and underwater vehicles. The SAE Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS) and NATO Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 4586 enjoy considerable attention from both policymakers and industry. Systems using STANAG 4586 are not currently interoperable with systems using JAUS. The standards serve similar functions in many respects, and have some similarity in their message sets, yet have differing approaches to accomplishing levels of interoperability. As a result, the Standards Committee of the NDIA Robotics Division performed a study to investigate the differences and similarities between key interoperability standards and recommend an unmanned systems standardization strategy to support improved interoperability and cost reduction. The findings of the study are presented in this report.
