Where will unmanned technology take us in the maritime security arena?
We already have more than a toe in the water, and with each year unmanned systems at sea are taking a larger role.
Our guests Sunday, March 15th from 5-6pm Eastern to discuss these and related topics will be Dr. William Burnett and Dr. Todd Holland.
We will use their recent article, Unmanned and Unafraid: The Transformation of Naval Oceanography, as our starting off point.
