As unmanned systems become increasingly prevalent in naval operations, it is imperative to understand the ethical and legal implications of using these advanced technologies. This session will examine existing international legal frameworks and their application to autonomous systems, along with policy considerations for states and organizations involved in developing and deploying these technologies, overall emphasising the need for transparency, accountability, and ethical guidelines in the use of armed marine autonomous systems.
