We are living, increasingly, in a drone-saturated world. In recent years, drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), have proliferated rapidly around the globe in both military and civilian spheres. Today, over 90 nations and non-state groups are known to operate drones, including at least 30 countries that either operate or are developing armed drones. As this technology continues to proliferate. In an effort to describe the kinds of capabilities that will be available to various types of actors, our panelist will examine and categorize UAVs based on two characteristics: (1) the degree to which they are accessible to any given actor; and (2) the technology base and infrastructure required to produce and/or operate them.
