An investigation was conducted to provide a comprehensive evaluation of current Unmanned Aircraft VehicleRemotely Piloted Vehicle UAVRPV system and its applicability as a lethal weapon system. Numerous systems were evaluated while concentrating on the Department of Defense more prominent programs, the Pioneer UAV, Vertical Takeoff and Landing VTOL UAV and BQM-147A EXDRONE UAV. Israel has proven time and time again, that UAVsRPVs, when properly integrated into the combat arena as a lethal weapon system, can contribute significantly at a lower cost with less risk to an aircrew man in a manned aircraft system. In general the thesis shows many capable UAVRPV systems designs are available in the market place today. These systems are assessed to determine their viability in the every changing combat environment. Unmanned air vehicleremotely piloted vehicle, UAVRPV, Vertical takeoff and landing.
