Ukraine: Anti-drone arms race is 'a bit of a cat and mouse game', expert says

Watch: War in Ukraine has sparked an arms race to defend against drones.

A defence expert in the use of drones in warfare says "there is a race happening", with drone and counter-drone innovation in Ukraine.

Speaking with Forces News in the video above, Dr Ulrike Franke, who is an expert in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)/drones, artificial intelligence and military technology, says she believes drone superiority alone will not determine who will win militarily in Ukraine.

"I don't think that the drones are the key on who is going to win in this war, but I don't think any other weapon system is really," Dr Franke added.
