The US Army unveiled a 'new roadmap' for its future unmanned aircraft system (UAS) strategy at UV Europe in Brussels on 29 June.

Centred around a ’universal operator’, the army wants all of its seven UAS assets and accompanying unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) to be operated from either the universal ground control station (UGCS) or ‘Mobile or Manned’ UGCS (M-UGCS), a senior officer revealed.

It is envisaged that UGCS will operate RQ-5 Hunter, ER/MP (Extended Range/ Multi-Purpose) and Shadow B UASs with M-UGCS operating Raven, gMAV, Wasp and Puma small and mini UAVs while also providing links to manned airframes.
