Abstract : Current joint doctrine on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) employment, though extensive, does not provide sufficient clarity and scope to fully exploit emerging UAV capabilities. Joint doctrine does not sufficiently address the role of integrating component Commanders UAV assets into JTF operations or define adequate procedures for prioritizing UAV missions to meet JFC objectives. Doctrine must suggest procedures and an organizational structure to balance intelligence collection objectives and operational requirements for RSTA As the number and capabilities of UAVs available to the JFC increase, the amount and timiliness of RsTA information available to the JFC will expand dramatically. Current JTF/JFACC organizational structures and procedures are insufficient to plan, prioritize and exploit this increased data flow. Joint doctrine must be updated to reflect new UAV systems, define service/JTF UAV responsibilities, and suggest organizational and procedural structures that can manage the increased volume and timeliness of UAV derived RSTA information.
