The Corps might not have any manned aircraft 15 years from now, the top Marine said at a national security discussion at Brookings Institutions Thursday.

The U.S. military is amid a major shift in pushing high tech gear and equipment to compete with rising adversaries, which includes cyber, automation, robotics and drone aircraft.

“I don’t know what war is going to look like in the future,” said Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Robert B. Neller. “I think things that fly in the sky, the great majority of them … there will not be human beings at the control. There will be a human somewhere directing that thing.”

Even with the trend towards drones and automation the human element will not be completely removed from the battlefield.

“We aren’t androids,” Neller said. “There is a human part of this.”
