Here at ECN, we love hearing from our own readers about different trends and new technologies you guys are working with! We like it so much we're devoting an entire issue to what our readers think about the impact of different technologies on their jobs and projects. The second category is military/aerospace technology, specifically unmanned systems, which has proven to be one of the hottest topics in the industry. With the ascending role of unmanned systems coinciding with the increase in asymmetrical warfare, many people are predicting that drones could eventually replace humans on the front lines – the only question is to what degree. That’s where you come in, dear readers.

The question is: What role will unmanned aerial systems play in America’s future warfighting arsenal? Will UAS ever completely replace manned aircraft? Why or why not?
