Military and civilian organizations throughout the world are employing unmanned systems as part of their everyday operations. The standard  models for evaluating how a system works, however, are more than a century old, so analysts are struggling with such important questions as:

  • What is the value of robotics?
  • How should new unmanned systems be designed, built and operated?
  • What new command and control arrangements work best for unmanned systems?
  • How should legacy  systems integrate into manned-unmanned hybrid enterprises?

This seminar will introduce participants to new quantitative techniques for analyzing unmanned military and civilian systems and provide methods to analyze:

  • Design Features, Total Cost of Ownership, Test and Evaluation, Logistics and Operational Performance
  • Trade-offs between human and machine control: the true costs of autonomy
  • Where traditional OR methods are appropriate and where new techniques are required
  • Recent operational and acquisition case studies
This seminar is geared to the military professional, defense analyst or commercial fleet analyst with a general knowledge of traditional analysis techniques but looking for new methods to analyze unmanned systems.
