  • This volume includes policy and strategy documents on autonomous and semiautonomous weapons systems from the DoD and specific military branches.
  • This volume also contains two in-depth articles from the Air and Space Power Journal, the professional journal of the U.S. Air Force, relating to the future of both remotely piloted aircraft and unmanned combat aerial vehicles.
  • The Commentary to this volume includes a discussion of the "Third Offset Strategy" of the Department of Defense, which is intended to counter the expanded ability of U.S. adversaries to match the powerful precision weapons in the U.S. arsenal.
