Roving UAV IED interdiction system
MetadataShow full item record
In support of the Naval Postgraduate School's Systems Engineering Capstone, a project team was formed from Cohort 311-093A to perform an analysis on the possibility of utilizing Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) in campaign against improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The goal of the project was to determine if a weapon system is feasible to increase capabilities to the warfighter in the fight against the IED threat. The project scope was limited to the UAV classes with local (squad/battalion) control to provide an organic increase in capabilitiesspecifically Tier I (man-portable) and Tier II (tactical) families of UAVs. Modeling and simulation, warhead analysis, and a cost analysis were used to score the proposed alternatives on specific Key Performance Parameters. This information was analyzed and a recommendation was made to only arm the Tier II UAV using a small missile.
