Abstract:

At the request of the Office of Naval Research ONR, the National Research Council established a committee, under the auspices of the Naval Studies Board, to review ONRs uninhabited combat air vehicles UCAVs program. The primary program review was held December 13-15, 1999. For program context, a series of briefings by other Department of Defense and Department of the Navy organizations involved in related unmanned aerial vehicle UAV and UCAV activities were presented to the committee on January 18-19,2000. This report is based on the information presented at those meetings and on the committee members accumulated experience and expertise in military operations, systems, and technology. The Navy UCAV picture is changing rapidly, and this report necessarily reflects the status at the time the information was presented.
