Kooy symposium 2013: Unmanned Aerial Systems







Unmanned Aerial Systems are an increasingly important instrument in international conflicts and for national security. Long, tireless and at exactly the right place. No risk for own personnel and relatively low costs are key advantages of unmanned systems.

Disadvantages, hard to solve issues and dilemmas are also important when contemplating more extended use of UAVs. Which technical improvements are necessary? Are armed UAVs effective and reliable to the extend needed? Which ethical and political dilemmas need to be solved? How can safe integration in civil airspace be achieved.

These and other questions were discussed at the Kooy symposium 2013. Operational, political and technical aspects were addressed during the plenary blocks “Setting the scene” and “Policy and vision”. Real systems and smart Dutch technology could be seen at the exposition and during the plenary block “Excellent technologies”.

The symposium was held Wednesday 3 April 2013 at the Naval Barracks Amsterdam.
Several international guests attended including a German MoD speaker invited on the initiative of EDTA partner DWT.
