Legal and Ethical Issues Related to Advanced Maritime Automation and Autonomous Vessels
Sean T. Pribyl, a senior associate in the Firm’s maritime group, will be a Keynote speaker at the Naval Studies Board (“NSB”) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (“NAS”) Workshop on “Multi-Domain Autonomous Systems for U.S. Naval Forces” on March 12, 2018, in Washington, D.C. The Workshop was organized at the request of the Chief of Naval Operations (“CNO”) and Department of the Navy.
Sean’s presentation, “Legal and Ethical Issues Related to Advanced Maritime Automation and Autonomous Vessels,” will take place at 4:30 p.m. during the unclassified portion of the Workshop.
The mission of the NSB, created in 1974 at the request of the CNO, is to be a source of independent, long-range, scientific and technical planning advice for the naval forces. As mutually agreed upon between the CNO and the President of the NAS and with the appropriate attention to the influence of the domestic economy, national objectives, social imperatives, and anticipated military requirements, the NSB conducts and report upon surveys and studies in the field of scientific research and development applicable to the operation and function of the Navy.
