Norfolk, Va. (WTKR) - The Navy continues to look at the ways unmanned systems can be integrated to the fleet.

Rear Admiral Robert Girrier provided an updated on the Navy's blog earlier this month.

In part, Girrier wrote:

"We are living in a world that is connected more than ever with the surge of technology and rapid information sharing. We are also living in an increasingly dangerous world with contested regions on the sea, in the air, under the sea and in cyberspace. My job, drawing on fleet experience, is to see how unmanned systems and technology can help solve problems we face in contested regions around the world. How can unmanned systems help leverage the capabilities of our ships, submarines and aircraft?"

Over the next two years, the Navy will look to end demonstration efforts that aren't working out in favor of reinvesting money into "more promising initiatives."
