ConsultationBirmingham Policy Commission: The Security Impact of Drones 

Operational questions

  • How would you assess RPAS in terms of 
    i.   general efficacy 
    ii.  compared to manned fixed wing aircraft and 
    iii. accuracy vis-a-vis civilian casualties and collateral damage? How profoundly do these judgements vary between types of operational scenario and how should that affect potential UK choices? 
  • What role do you see RPAS playing in a mixed force belonging to the armed forces of a single nation such as the UK?
  • How would you differentiate the roles of intelligence gathering and more kinetic uses in the ways RPAS are used?
  • How and when do you see the operationalization of fully autonomous systems in the future? In which national Armed Forces?
