Chapter: Drone and Cyber Warfare Revisited

This chapter is structured as follows. In the following section, some of the principal operational uses and possibilities of the use of UAVs and cyber warfare will be presented. Their main characteristics, uses and limitations will be set out. In the third section, some of the main legal challenges relating firstly to the use of UAVs and then in relation to cyber warfare will be discussed in two separate subsections. The chapter will be rounded off with a number of conclusions bringing together both the operational and the legal perspectives.

It should be borne in mind that this chapter is not intended to provide a comprehensive analysis of all of the operational and legal questions relating to these two types of remote warfare, nor still less, to explore the concept of remote warfare as a whole in depth or provide conclusive answers to the questions discussed. However, to the extent it provides a useful overview of some of the main questions relating to the interaction of operational and legal factors in their (potential) employment, it will have succeeded in its purpose.
