Roper Publishes Op-ed on "Ukraine Shows How Drones Are Changing Warfare"

Will Roper, distinguished professor of the practice in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, co-authored an op-ed in Time Magazine titled "Ukraine Shows How Drones Are Changing Warfare." In it, Roper and co-author Eric Schmidt argue that the war in Ukraine underscores the vital role of ground troops and the imperative for continuous innovation in software and drone technology.
