Summary

This book will illustrate the current state of warfare, the challenges we face and the role drones can and will play in this increasingly complex environment. Taken from a multitude of perspectives and making sense of the confusing details that media and the Academy have not been able to explain, readers will be astounded by how far we've come in terms of drone technology and combat application-- they may very well be shocked by the implications of what countries like the US and Israel are already doing. Taking a rare look at what is being developed and deployed by the world's powers, the editor offers rare insight into this fascinating and often shrouded area of innovation.
