Abstract : This is the fifth update of the UAV Master Plan. It provides requirements, program plans, management and acquisition strategies for nonlethal UAVs. Lethal UAV programs are addressed in the DoD Standoff Weapons Master Plan. In addition to updating last year's material, this year's plan: (1) Provides a summary of draft and approved UAV operational requirements documents (ORDs); (2) Consolidates discussions of UAV technology; (3) Describes new UAV interoperability initiatives with the Joint Precision Strike Demonstration Task Force (JPSD-TF) and with cruise missiles; and (4) Provides appendix discussions of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) efforts to establish regulations for the flight of UAVs in nonmilitary airspace and applications of UAVs in the civil and commercial markets. Such information may prove useful to other government agencies working in UAVs and related areas.
