This report, published in 2011, argues that unmanned systems can play a useful role in supporting troop operations. At the same time it draws attention to the downside of unmanned systems: unmanned systems cannot win a war. Basically it is always, and possibly even more so now, a matter of boots on the ground. Moreover, there are several important ethical objections to using armed, unmanned systems. Does using drones not make it too easy to kill? Does a drone operator located thousands of miles away from his/her target have adequate information to make life or death decisions? Can the anxiety and antagonism that drones arouse in the civilian population be justified?
