Paper Abstract

This paper considers the implications of the creation of an autonomous robotic fighting force without recall-ability which could serve as a deterrent to a ‘total war’ magnitude attack. It discusses the technical considerations for this type of robotic system and the limited enhancements required to current technologies (particularly UAVs) needed to create such a system. Particular consideration is paid to how the introduction of this type of technology by one actor could create a need for reciprocal development. Also considered is the prospective utilization of this type of technology by non-state actors and the impact of this on state actors.
