Paper Abstract

As the cost of acquiring new reconnaissance assets continues to escalate, some are beginning to examine what is really required to fulfill the needs of the tactical community. Combining new technology such as the GPS navigation system with mature technologies like RS-170 video formats in unmanned air vehicles is a path to providing first phase intelligence within a limited budget and preserving highly trained air-crews.
