Abstract : Our second Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) annual report provides an overview of the Defense Department's UAV program activities for fiscal year (FY) 1996. The Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Office (DARO) is chartered to manage the Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Program (DARP), which includes both tactical and endurance UAVs among its component program elements. During the past year, UAVs have seen major programmatic changes, have continued to demonstrate unique capabilities, and have experienced increasing acceptance by operational users. This report highlights their recent achievements, describes their acquisition plans and issues, and projects the DARO's UAV vision for the future.
