Abstract:

Direct and remote control and display of tactical RPV having onboard automatic control and remote data link controlmonitor capability, utilizing ground based landing aids, suitable displays for manual override monitor and control, during the all-weather operations have been analyzed to define an optimum launch and recovery control system. Launch and recovery concepts necessary to support the probable mechanisms envisioned for present, near-term, and future RPVs have been collected, evaluated and final recommendations made.
