Significance to Air Force (AAR) Project

  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    • Extends Range

    • Shortens Response for Time-Critical Targets

    • Maintains In-Theater Presence Using Fewer Assets

    • Allows Deployment with Manned Fighters and Attack Without the Need of Forward Staging Areas

“How does it (J-UCAS) air refuel? … which is persistence and endurance, things men can’t do in airplanes”

-Gen. John Jumper, USAF, February 2005

  • Manned Aircraft

    • Provides Adverse Weather Operations

    • Improves Fueling Efficiency

    • Improves Pilot Workload

AAR Assists UCAVs in Reaching Its Full Potential,

and Greatly Enhances Manned Refueling
