Stacie Pettyjohn on drones in Ukraine

The Merge podcast hosts Dr. Stacie Pettyjohn to discuss her new report:

Evolution Not Revolution, Drone Warfare in Russia’s 2022 Invasion of Ukraine

Stacie is a Senior Fellow and Director of the Defense Program at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS). Her expertise includes defense strategy, posture, force planning, the defense budget, airpower, and wargaming. Her current projects focus on the effect of drones on warfare, munitions stockpiles, and nuclear deterrence in a multipolar world.

We talked about drone tech, adaption since the 2022 invasion, innovation on both sides of the conflict, and despite all of that—what critical drone technology is still notably absent on the battlefield.

Watch the full interview from The Merge.
