Summary text/ abstractRapid developments in technology increase the use of unmanned systems in warfare dramatically. Robots and unmanned systems have been seen as valuable in previous conflicts. Although these current systems are still remotely operated by a human, they do in a way relieve soldiers from the horrors of combat. The desire of states to gain military advantage means that the number of these systems is increasing and so are their capabilities. In the past decade, technology is advancing at an increased rate, particularly in the field of computing and electronics, resulting in a number of automated systems. There is a clear trend of machines taking the place of humans on the battlefield. "It's [the use of unmanned autonomous systems] going to change the fundamental equation of war. First, you had human beings without machines. Then you had human beings with machines. And finally you have machines without human beings".
