This article reports the methods and results of an on-line survey addressing the issues surrounding lethality and autonomous systems that was conducted as part of a research project for the U.S. Army Research Office. The data from this survey were analyzed both qualitatively, providing a comparison between four different demographic samples targeted in the survey (namely, robotics researchers, policymakers, the military, and the general public), and quantitatively, for the robotics researcher demographic. In addition to the analysis, the design and administration of this survey and a discussion of the survey results are provided.
