US Coast Guard re-affirms two tier UAS architecture requirement

11th February 2009 - 09:45 GMT | by in Canberra


The US Coast Guard has confirmed it has just completed a strategic paper on development of its unmanned air systems capabilities with this reaffirming a two tier operational architecture according to the services assistant commandant for acquisition RADM Gary Blore.

Addressing a Pentagon telephone media conference 6 February he said “we just did a strategic paper for our department.”

The two tiers would comprise a ship launched tactical capability and a medium altitude system. The service is stressing that it wants to fulfil both requirements in cooperative programmes with other US military service arms rather than attempt stand-alone acquisitions.
