The Marine Corps Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Squadron of the Future: A Manpower Estimate
MetadataShow full item record
The U.S. Marine Corps has articulated its desire to procure an L-class ship capable, Group 4 or 5 UAS. The MAGTF Unmanned Aerial System Expeditionary, MUX, is envisioned to address multiple gaps in Marine aviation. The MUX will be a persistent, long-range UAS configurable for a multitude of missions. Because of the complexity of the system, the MUX will likely affect the manning requirements of the Marine Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Squadron (VMU). The goal of this research is to estimate the likely changes to the VMUﾒs manpower requirements, as a part of O&S costs, and monetize that difference.
