Commander Peter Pipkin of the Royal Navy discusses how autonomous systems have the potential to change the way warfare is carried out. With more work needed to understand the applications of unmanned technology, BAE Systems worked in collaboration with a number of partner companies including QinetiQ, SeeByte, ASV, Cloudnet IT Solutions and Blue Bear on a series of tests and simulations. ‘Unmanned Capability’, demonstrated the planning, tasking, control and monitoring abilities of unmanned systems technologies and how they could support naval operations in the future.
The Companies involved in ‘Unmanned Capability’ will be taking part in the Royal Navy’s ‘Unmanned Warrior’ project trials this October off the coasts of Scotland and Wales. At BAE Systems, our advanced defence technology protects people and national security, and keeps critical information and infrastructure secure.
