Peter Singer was quoted in an article by Defense Systems about cost advantages of new Army technologies:
Peter Singer, Strategist at New America and author of “Wired for War,” sees substantial cost advantages of this technology as well.
“In the military today, humans are actually the greatest budget cost, so the present model of multiple people to one unmanned system has to be reversed if there are ever to be true cost savings. In turn, a swarm of drones can extend across greater geographic space than a single system,” he said.
