The US requires standoff precision strike capabilities in GPS-denied and high threat environments. This includes fire-and-forget lock-after-launch vision-based guidance for SOPGM. Due to emerging threats, a paradigm shift is occurring in the way we gather intelligence, maintain surveillance, and perform reconnaissance. ISR platforms are evolving, and artificial intelligence is at the forefront of this change. Coordinated sUAS teams will take the place of forward observers and manned ISR in future battlefield settings. However, before this can become a reality, advanced teaming capabilities including dynamic networking, mapping, navigation, targeting, and human-machine interfacing capabilities must be developed. ACTRS collaborative autonomous sUAS will be launched to passively detect, identify, and provide targeting data generation of all target types to be leveraged by standoff precision guided weapons systems. ACTRS will enable precision strike capabilities for SOPGMs within GPS-denied environments.
