The Remote Control Project has commissioned a series of monthly briefings from Open Briefing on remote-control warfare. The briefings cover developments in five key areas or remote warfare: special forces, private military and security companies, unmanned vehicles and autonomous weapon systems, cyber warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

Top stories this month include the deployment of US special forces to Uganda to assist in tracking down the LRA, accusation of US private military company involvement in the Ukraine conflict, the UK House of Commons defence committee’s conclusion on the importance of military drones, and the demonstration of a new Israeli intelligence-gathering and surveillance system in Brazil.

Read the briefing here.

The Remote Control project is a project of the Network for Social Change hosted by Oxford Research Group. The project examines changes in military engagement, in particular the use of drones, special forces, private military companies and cyber warfare.
