Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pilotless aerial vehicle systems (PAVs) have captured many people’s imaginations through the media as combat vehicles in various war zones around the world. These vehicles of combat have acquired the pejorative term ‘drone’ as these aircraft have ‘no intelligence’ and only respond by attacking positions identifi ed by forward personnel on the ground. Unmanned drones offer warfare with fewer casualties. The drone operator is in little danger of harm being some many of kilometres away from the combat zone.
