In support of the United States Marine Corps (USMC), PEO(U&W), PMA-263 is conducting market research — here — to identify existing market capabilities, specifically a small Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) or family of UAS consisting of, likely, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) and a common handheld Ground Control Station (GCS) capable of transporting material. The system should be rugged, lightweight, and ready to use as delivered with minimal logistics, training, and support requirements. The air vehicles should be capable of autonomous remote launch or a safe manual launch with a minimum of support equipment from a small confined area, and should be capable of either an autonomous or manual recovery within the same area as launch. The recovery method should be adequate to prevent system damage and allow for short turn-around times between missions. The GCS should be man-portable, control the UAS movement, and consist of the necessary equipment to monitor each UAV’s position and status.
