Future force structures expect a mix of piloted and remotely-piloted combat platforms in contrast to the current predominance of piloted systems such as Wildcat, Apache, Typhoon & Lightning II in the UK. Does the emergence of more capable remotely-piloted platforms, with their increasing utility in the force mix, present an opportunity to the Weapons Systems and Technology community?
Can the use of remotely-piloted platforms improve a weapon system’s time into service, operating environment and utility across the different services?
This conference aims to provide an opportunity to discuss the context and rationale of using future platforms for which weapon systems could be developed.
A call for papers is currently open and can be viewed on our website. The deadline for submitting abstracts is 2 March 2015 and a programme will be released shortly afterwards.
