UAS Combat Threat Survivability

Publication Type
Abbreviated Definition:
  • The ability to be mission capable after an encounter with a hostile threat

Requirements for UAS survivability will morph and grow as their applicability transitions from a “wingman” perspective to a “point” position.

UAS survivability is not a “nice to have”

  • The “disposable” tag is no longer applicable
  • UAS increase survivability of assets AND individuals
  • Commanders have come to depend on them
  • Troops have come to depend on them
