Assessment of a Lethal Uninhabited Air Vehicle 1999-01-5532
This paper presents the results of a conceptual-level design sensitivity analysis of a lethal unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Cadet Smith conducted this analysis during his Spring Intern period at the Air Vehicles Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). The design was focused on a vehicle capable of carrying out missions that currently employ the F-15E, F-16, and F- 117A. These missions include a deep strike mission, a shorter mission of the same type, and a suppression of enemy air defenses mission (SEAD).
