The research project on uncrewed maritime systems, including naval autonomous systems, was commissioned by an international NGO. The ISPK provided an overview of terminology that is used to describe maritime drones and related platforms. The paper also discussed the use of uncrewed and autonomous systems in naval missions and on the spectrum of conflict. In addition to legal consideration, the study covered strategic drivers, scenarios, and trends. Finally, the discussion weighed pros and cons of the employment of uncrewed and autonomous systems.

Per the agreement between the contractor and the service provider, the study will not be published.
