Costing of maritime unmanned systems. Bourque, François-Alex. CMRE-FR-2018-007. October 2019.
This contribution estimates the costs for a broad range of unmanned systems. It first summarises the extant unclassified literature and presents the costs structure of a system. The analysis then proceeds by using data and assumptions to produce estimates for a set of manned and unmanned system categories. It concludes by providing ways forward.
