In a presentation titled “Remote Military Aviation Systems: Myths and Reality,” Schwartz will address the role of remotely-operated aviation systems (called drones by many) in the U.S. defense arsenal, their consequences and implications for defense policy, the American image of war, and the country’s physical security in an age of stateless terrorism.

Schwartz address the Thinklogical Technology Summit with his perspective on an important national security issue,” said Joe Pajer, president and CEO of Thinklogical. “Thinklogical’s secure video and KVM solutions play a critical role in the command and control infrastructure of our nation’s defense, security and intelligence operations. Gen. Schwartz’s insights into today’s defense policy challenges will be invaluable for the attendees of the Summit.”

As Chief of Staff, Schwartz served as the senior uniformed Air Force officer responsible for the organization, training and equipping of 680,000 active-duty, Guard, Reserve and civilian forces serving in the United States and overseas.
