AI, Autonomy and Airpower: the End of Pilots?
Swedish Defence University, Department of Military Studies, Tactical Warfare Division, Air Operations Section. Swedish Defence University.
2019 (English)In: Defence Studies, ISSN 1470-2436, E-ISSN 1743-9698, Vol. 19, no 4, p. 337-352Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Military pilots have long been central to airpower projection in both combat and non-combat operations. While the historical and contemporary roles of military aviators have been examined extensively in previous scholarship, the present study distinguishes itself by evaluating the future prospects of military aviators. By so doing, it argues that technological advances in autonomy and artificial intelligence (AI) will most likely lead to the development of pilotless aerial vehicles (PAVs), if current technological and social trends persist. In this new order, the military pilot will become a thing of the past.
