Q&A: What Are 'Uncrewed Systems'?

Uncrewed systems are vehicles—aerial, terrestrial, or marine—and associated elements, such as sensors and communications software, that can conduct data-collection missions without a human presence aboard. They are typically controllable or programmable, self-powered, untethered, and operate on a continuum from attended to fully autonomous.
