U.S. Unmanned Aerial Systems
Jeremiah Gertler (au)
Unmanned aircraft are commonly called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and when combined with ground control stations and data links, form UAS, or unmanned aerial systems. UAS comprise a rapidly growing portion of the military budget, and have been a long-term interest of Congress. At times, Congress has encouraged the development of such systems; in other instances, it has attempted to rein in or better organize the Dept. of DefensešůĽs efforts. UAS are now making national headlines as they are used in ways normally reserved for manned aircraft. Contents of this report: (1) Background: Why Does the Military Want UAS?; Current and Future UAS Missions; Why Are there So Many Different UAS?; Does DOD Have an Integrated UAS Development Policy?; UAS Management Issues; UAS and Investment Priorities; Duplication of Capability; Other Potential Missions; Recruitment and Retention; Industrial Base Considerations; (2) Congressional Considerations; Current UAS Programs; Future UAS. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
