This paper addresses a difficult issue confronting the designers of intelligent robotic systems: their potential use of lethality in warfare. As part of an ARO-funded study, we are currently investigating the points of view of various demographic groups, including researchers, regarding this issue, as well as developing methods to engineer ethical safeguards into their use in the battlefield.
