Abstract

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)—drones—are increasingly prominent in U.S. military strategy. The U.S. Air Force trains more UAV pilots than fighter and bomber pilots combined. A 2011 Defense Department analysis predicted “a force made up almost entirely of [UAVs] by the middle of this century." Some argue that drones and other robotics so alter the character and conduct of military operations as to constitute a revolution in military affairs.
