U.S. Naval War College (NWC) students participate in a presentation & discussion of unmanned robotic systems with ReconRobotics, Inc. & Hydroid, Inc.

This event was part of the "Unmanned Systems and Conflict in the 21st Century" course at NWC, serving as an opportunity for future decision makers to gain exposure and expand their knowledge of unmanned technologies.



"It's important to be aware of advancements we're making now because they will change the strategic and operational environment of which our warfighters will be engaged in," said Laurie Schrall, NWC student, Office of the Director of National Intelligence.


Representatives from Hydroid shared and discussed the Remote Environmental Measuring Unit S Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (REMUS AUVs) with students. Displayed was the REMUS 100, a compact, light-weight that can operate in coastal environments up to 100 meters in depth. It can be fitted with a variety of sensors to use with such applications as hydrographic surveys, mine counter measures, harbor security operations, environmental monitoring, debris field mapping, search and salvage operations, fishery operations and scientific sampling and mapping.


"Unmanned technology is still fairly new," said John Jackson, NWC "Unmanned Systems and Conflict in the 21st Century" course professor. "It's important for our future leaders to gain more experience and exposure to unmanned systems. Learning the capabilities and limitations of these systems will help facilitate making well informed decisions. During the course, we discuss air, ground unmanned and maritime systems as well as legal and ethics issues surrounding their uses."
