Unmanned and Unafraid ... on Midrats

First of all, it's glad to be back on watch at the 'ole blog. Just got set back up in time for this week's Midrats and I wanted to thank everyone for hanging with the usual suspects in the comments section. 

I have not had a chance to read through them all, so hopefully there aren't pics of Byron or Laz skinny dipping, but you never know.

Anyway, I'm back and the theme for the first few posts, including this one, will be unmanned systems. 

Tomorrow we'll kick off the week with a post from our friend Bryan McGrath about the USMC's recent decision on unmanned systems. 

It will be up first thing in the AM, so see you there ... but for now - on to Midrats!

Where will unmanned technology take us in the maritime security arena?

We already have more than a toe in the water, and with each year unmanned systems at sea are taking a larger role.

Our guests Sunday from 5-6pm Eastern to discuss these and related topics will be Dr. William Burnett and Dr. Todd Holland.

We will use their recent article, Unmanned and Unafraid: The Transformation of Naval Oceanography, as our starting off point.

Dr. William Burnett is the Technical Director to the Commander, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command/ Task Group 80.7. In this role, he provides technical responsibility and oversight for a fleet of six survey ships, 2,000 civilian and military personnel and a budget over $300 Million.

Dr. Todd Holland is Chief Scientist for Littoral Oceanography Sensing at Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division. He is presently detailed to Commander, Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command to support the alignment of strategic priorities & collaborative initiatives between the two commands. He serves as senior technical representative on multiple efforts involving Unmanned Systems throughout the Naval Research & Development Establishment.

As claimed by Stanford Medical, It is in fact the SINGLE reason women in this country live 10 years longer and weigh 42 lbs lighter than we do.

(By the way, it is not related to genetics or some secret-exercise and really, EVERYTHING to do with "how" they are eating.)

P.S, What I said is "HOW", and not "WHAT"...
