The Naval Sea Systems Command NAVSEA CVX Program Office, PMS-378, is conducting a series of trade-off studies to provide the necessary inputs for the creation of the Operational Requirements Document ORD for the Tactical Aviation TACAIR sea-based platform for the 21st century, the CVX. SSC San Diego, UAV Project Office, has been assigned two of these studies. This study is the second of the two studies, addressing general operational and physical design characteristics required to incorporate unmanned aerial vehicles UAVs organic to CVX operations. Analysis includes both operations from a detachment standpoint four airframes and from a squadron standpoint 12 airframes. Potential impact areas include CVX deck structure, launch capabilities, recovery methods, maintenance spaces, storage spaces, personnel living spaces, command and control spaces and workstations, communications and data transmission paths, and ship antennae requirements.
