  • Abstract:
    The Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Roadmap outlines how the U.S. Army will develop, organize, and employ UAS from 2010 to 2035 across full spectrum operations. The Army UAS Roadmap is nested with the Unmanned Systems (UMS) Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) and capitalizes on UAS capabilities and emerging technologies so that the warfighter can conduct missions more effectively with less risk. Experiences in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) prove that UAS significantly augment mission accomplishment by reducing a soldier's workload and their exposure to direct enemy contact. The UAS serve as unique tools for the commander, which broaden battlefield situational awareness and ability to see, target, and destroy the enemy by providing actionable intelligence to the lowest tactical levels. Unmanned platforms are the emerging lethal and non-lethal weapons of choice that will continue to transform how the Army prosecutes future operations and ultimately save lives. The eventual employment of sustainment/cargo UAS will ensure responsive and uninterrupted sustainment support ultimately increasing freedom of action and operational reach. The roadmap, although not directive in nature, is a living document that factually and conceptually benchmarks the Army's UAS strategy for the next 25 years and provides a common vision for all organizations responsible for synchronizing this transformation.
