TYSONS CORNER, VA, Sept. 22, 2016 — Chris Pehrson, senior director of strategic development at General Atomics‘ aeronautical systems business, has said unmanned aerial vehicles should have added functionalities to support mission reassignment, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

Pehrson was one of the participants in a discussion of the potential role of UAVs in contested environments during the Air Force Association’s Air, Space and Cyber conference,  Aviation International News reported Tuesday.

“It’s not about the vehicle; it’s about how they’re employed and what they do to extend the productivity and the reach of the warfighter, whether it’s extending sensor networks, whether it’s automation that allows them to work in less permissive or contested environments because they have a logic that allows them to adapt, ” he said.
