Fast Autonomous Recon System Prototyping [video]
MetadataShow full item record
The United States Marine Corps (USMC) uses the V22 Osprey aircraft to conduct its long-range missions. The Marines onboard the V22 would like to have real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) data about the landing zone (LZ) as they approach it. They are considering using unmanned aerial system (UAS), which will be capable of reaching the LZ ahead of V22, loitering there, and transmitting LZ ISR data back to the V22 for at least eight minutes prior to LZ arrival. This presentation presents a study on analysis of alternatives for providing ISR for forward deployed Marine units, design and construction of FAST ISR prototype, testing and analysis evaluation of the FAST ISR’s key technologies.
