POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Proceedings magazine, Dave Majumdar argues:
…the Department of Defense should invest in a long-range stealthy autonomous combat air vehicle that can operate deep behind enemy lines and engage adversaries without human intervention. Autonomy might be the only effective way for a long-range unmanned aircraft to operate in a theater where the United States faces off against a near-peer potential adversary…
Do you agree?
