Learning ObjectivesHistorically many assets of the military were single purpose based on the objective of bringing large amounts of force, men and material to win. In the age of irregular warfare, globally distributed threats and non-state actors, solutions are needed that are smaller in scale, fast to deploy and highly adaptive to a range of missions. Unmanned technology which began as a replacement for “dull, dirty and dangerous” work can provide a new level of adaptability through “multi-purposing”. What if you had a portable drone that could transform in minutes to support dozens of missions? We will explore the possibilities.
