Northrop Grumman Corporation will be holding a media briefing during the Australian International Air Show focused on the Triton unmanned aircraft system (UAS). The briefing will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 2 to 3 p.m

Northrop Grumman will highlight a range of its key capabilities and programmes at the air show, including unmanned aircraft systems; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR); radars and sensor systems; and infrared countermeasures

""Top 100 arms sales decreased in 2011: companies pursue diverse strategies in response to austerity measures

"Uncertainties stemming from proposed austerity measures by governments in the Global North have led some companies to pursue military specialization, while others have downsized or diversified into adjacent markets.""

These drones to be exhibited by Northrop Grumman have multiple uses not just military but also security and policing, updating maps and so on. The drones are remotely controlled by a human operator on the ground. The location of the operator can be anywhere on the globe.

The military front is changing where more and more the human operator does not travel to a geographical location but their target can be anywhere geographically.

As the best means of defense from these new cyberspace based technologies is to attack them within the cyberspace itself. Where like fighter pilots, who intercept an enemy offensive raid in the air space where no humans live. Likewise, an offensive raid is conducted in cyberspace, before the attacker deploys in the physical space.

The era of transition to cyberspace has begun; wars are played out by drones and computers. The most offensive attacks will be carried out in cyberspace alone to disable the enemies capability before a physical strike can be launched.

This way we can see how the next war front will move from the cyber one, to intercepting our good and bad thoughts beforehand.

Yeah, spend another BILLIONS in Afghanistan, let's see where that'll bring you.

If you want money and big bucks you should build a very small/atomic drone, so that I can buy and fly my own drone in the girls locker room :)

I think it'll happen soon, the Chinese will takeover Northrop I think.

thanks for providing the perfect example of my last sentence i.e.

"This way we can see how the next war front will move from the cyber one, to intercepting our good and bad thoughts beforehand."

I see your from the Palestinian Territories wouldn't there be better uses for drones perhaps, crop spraying or watering in the inhospitable environment where you are geographically located, where food production is difficult and desperately needed?

But no, you want to indulge in fantasies that do you no good. By using the cyber technology to encroach on someone's privacy and dignity.

Food? I can always go to the UN station and ask for food!

What I need is cheap micro drones like the ones in Call of Duty!
