Abstract : Although not Navy programs, the Tier 2+ and Tier 3- Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) of the Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) may be of great use in naval operations. These UAVs are the products of the High Altitude Endurance UAV program at ARPA. This program is intended to develop and demonstrate two rival reconnaissance UAVs, then let the users decide on the force balance and needed capabilities based on the performance of the candidates. The UAVs, designated Tier 2 + and Tier 3-, are intended to be theater level assets supplementing existing reconnaissance platforms.
