CNAS, Bard College’s Center for the Study of the Drone Launch New Database on UAS

The Center for a New American Security and Bard College’s Center for the Study of the Drone have introduced a database designed to help the public and policymakers learn about the implications of the proliferation of unmanned aerial systems worldwide, CNAS said Wednesday.

The Drone Database contains profiles of at least 150 unmanned systems from 48 countries that can be classified based on payload size, country of origin, range, endurance and other technical specifications, CNAS’ JaRel L. Clay wrote.

The database was created as part of the CNAS Proliferated Drones project that offers information on the development and acquisition of drones in Germany, South Korea, Singapore and other countries and includes a war game report on how state and non-state actors could use unmanned vehicles in conflicts.

Ben FitzGerald, director of CNAS’ technology and national security program, discussed the new database with Paul Scharre, director of CNAS’ Future of Warfare Initiative; and Dan Gettinger, co-founder of the Center for the Study of the Drone, through a podcast that can be accessed through CNAS’ SoundCloud and iTunes channels.
