The character of warfare has changed over time. Indeed, developments may be so dramatical that they can be characterized as revolutionary.

Technology developed new vehicles to attack enemies. In this book we will elaborate on Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). These systems are also known as drones and UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). In this book will be discussed what UAS’ are and what the legal limits are of the use of those unmanned systems.

This book will first zoom in on Lawful conflicts between Nations based on the United Nation charter. Second, on International Humanitarian law of war based on the first Geneva protocol. Moreover, the legality of Targeted Killing with the use of unmanned systems will be discussed. This introduction on the subject will be followed by relevant selected documents.
