Abstract:

The Armys Remotely Piloted Vehicle RPV Program was reviewed. This review covered the AQUILA Program which was directed at the provision of a demonstrator vehicle for evaluation of the utility of an RPV for Reconnaissance, Target Acquisition, and Laser Designation RSTAD. It also examines the adequacy of the available technology and ongoing development effort for implementing a daylight TV-laser-equipped mini-RPV suitable for operation in the battlefield environment. Finally, it looks into future potential uses by the Army of an RPV capability and the technology developments which will pace this use.
