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 Defenseńˇ╗s 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.
