  14. GROUP 5 UAS
    -RQ-4B GLOBAL HAWK
    • ISR
    • Normal Operating Altitude: 50-60K FT AGL
    • PAYLOAD
    • -EO/IR Camera, SIGINT, SAR/GMTI, Comms Relay
  15. UAS ADVANTAGES:
    -Long Endurance
    -Weaponization
    -Can Support Multiple Mission
    • -Low Visual Signature
    • -Diverse Payloads, sensors, target marking
    • -Threat and target standoff
    • -Man out of harms way
  16. UAS DISADVANTAGES:
    • -Must deconflict with other A/C
    • -Low visual signature (collision avoidance)
    • -Loud audible signature at lower altitudes
    • -slow speed, defensive reaction and transit to locations
    • -susceptible to poor weather, clouds, icing and winds
  17. Planning Considerations:
    • -Most effective at the tactical level
    • -UAS operators my not have manned flight experience
    • -Operating Altitudes for UA are different as the platform caps vary (METT-TC).
    • -Most UAS crews lack JTAC, forward observer, or tactical experience
  18. CAS INTEGRATION:
    Simplest scenario of UAS integration:
    -JTAC can use video to build SA of:
    -target area that is protected or masked
    • -generate target coordinates
    • -verbally talk aircrew onto targets
    • -task UAS with multiple NAIs, not just one
  19. Treat armed UAS in the same way as traditional aircraft.
    for hellfire shots better to state: "FINAL WEAPONS HEADING" as opposed to ''FAH''
  20. UAS are High in demand and SHORT in Supply!
