Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The need for a small tube launched UAV is presented. Such a UAV would allow pilots of the delivery platform to remain several miles away from harm's way. A few candidate concepts are presented, which would allow stand-off delivery of small UAVs for close-in data gathering. In addition to vehicle analysis, details on the background systems required are also discussed.
