Abstract
Several joint and service concepts recognize that the future Joint Force may need to be supported from the Sea Base. Furthermore, the future Joint Force envisions routine delivery of supplies and equipment from the Sea Base by unmanned aerial assets. Currently, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) provide an array of aerial sensors and a means of delivering munitions to distant targets with no risk to operators. However, there is very few cargo UAS developed and deployed on operations that are able to distribute commodities. Since they could contribute to improving force protection and enable the reduction of inventory for certain commodities, there is merit in developing the capability further. To address this required capability, the Marine Corps Combat Development Center (MCCDC) is exploring various options for future USMC needs for aerial logistics to support sea based distributed operations, essentially, to identify the system design requirements for future cargo UAS.
