The Marine Corps Warfighting Lab's Unmanned Tactical Autonomous Control and Collaboration (UTACC) program seeks to integrate Marines and autonomous machines to address the challenges encountered in the complex battlefield environment of the twenty-first century. In order to harness its combat capabilities, the Marine-machine team must be able to communicate. Successful integration of the Marine-machine team relies on choosing the right interfaces to achieve man-machine communication, whether they are audio, visual, haptic, electromagnetic, or some method yet discovered. This thesis seeks to help determine the correct sensor suite needed to address the information exchange requirements for a successful Marine-machine team. The authors conducted their research using a top-down approach that started at the doctrinal level and finished with the Marine Corps Tasks List. The result is a recommended table of measures of effectiveness (MOEs) and measures of performance (MOPs) for insertion into the Marine Corps Task List to evaluate the communication nodes utilized by the Marine-machine team. Future research should seek to develop additional MOEs/MOPs deemed necessary for the progress of UTACC.
