RQ-7 and US Army Tactical UAS: Requirements, Scenarios and Outlook (AB085)

This report takes a critical look at U.S. Army Tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems through the lens of RQ-7 and a potential larger, rotary-wing UAS to fill the void left with the cancellation of the Future Combat Systems Class IV UAS.

The research presents acquisition scenarios that are likely to occur given highoperations tempo, criticality of the unmanned tactical ISR mission and an assumed ongoing emphasis on irregular warfare/counterinsurgency. The three acquisition forecasts range from 2013 to 2025 G2 Solutions initiated this project as a result of multiple, independent and unsolicited industry questions pertaining to the future of U.S. Army TUAS.

Scenarios were built with inputs from U.S. DoD Roadmaps, the 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review, stated program acquisition and lifecycle plans as well as multiple inputs from industry.
