In April, the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme awarded BTPI $65,000 to analyze the development and use of military drone technologies across air, land, and sea. The project, led by drone experts Dr. James Patton Rogers and Dr Dominika Kunertova, will see the forging of a transatlantic partnership between BTPI and the Center for Strategic Studies (CSS) of ETH Zurich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The project will involve a series of Advanced Research Workshops, bringing together policymakers, academics, industry leaders, and military partitioners to identify the factors that may precipitate the proliferation of land, air, and sea drones in the Third Drone Age. Ultimately, this project will see BTPI engaging the highest levels of policy, providing NATO Members and Partners with insights into the doctrinal development of drone and counter-drone capabilities.
