'Recognised as the next great revolution in naval technology, the Royal Navy has identified maritime autonomy as an innovative route for future capability enhancement. The operation of such vessels, however, brings new challenges and requires an adapted approach to regulation and certification.

The Defence Maritime Regulator, through engagement with military and civilian agencies, along with the regulated community, has been able to develop an associated framework to meet this task. Although still in its infancy, it safeguards safety assurance while recognising the need to keep pace with innovation to prevent impeding effective capability development.' - UK MoD
