1 UAV Drones Team RamRod: Tyler Barry James Bohn Daniel Ramirez Hari Shrestha Arlo Swanson Garret Wilbanks

2 Outline Introduction History Technology and Applications Current Future Economics and Marketability Conclusion

3 The Economist Article til Joining the Drone Club Definition Domestic / International Small, cheap, portable for soldiers Smaller = faster deployment, mission Versatile and interactive Small attacks

4 Videos Small Scale UAV Large Scale UAV

5 History of Drones Perley s Aerial Bomber, 1863 Ineffective Dangerous An early attempt Eddy s Surveillance Kite, 1898 Based off of Douglas Archibald s kite of 1883 Camera s shutter attached to a string Provided information to American forces about enemy troops and fortifications

6 History of Drones DH.82B Queen Bee, Radio-controlled Could fly up to 17,000 feet at over 100 MPH for 300 miles First returnable and reusable UAV PB4Y-1, 1944 Converted PB4Y-1 Liberator Radio-controlled and TV-guided Designed to take out V-1 s Dangerous, but successful First time UAV s were used against other UAV s

7 History of Drones AQM-34 Ryan Firebee, Air-launched and controlled from a host airplane 34,000 recon missions performed over SouthEast Asia Reliable: 83% used in the Vietnam War were reused multiple times Pioneer, 1980 s USA acquired 20 from Israel; first modern UAV in their fleet Designed to take off from carriers or crude runways Provided recon on mobile highpriority targets

8 Small UAVs Advantages vs. Disadvantages Training i time Flight time Range Weapons Cost

9 AeroVironment RQ-11 Raven Specifications: Wingspan: 55in Length: 36in Weight: 4.2lbs Engine: Aveox 27/26/7-AV electric motor Speed: 28-60mph Range: 6.2mi Endurance: min 11_Raven

10 Current Uses Aerial Intelligence Surveillance Target acquisition Reconnaissance 11_Raven_2.jpg

11 Large Drones RQ-1, MQ-1 and MQ-9, Manufactured by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (Specially for military actions) RQ-4 Global Hawk, Firebird Manufactured by Northrop Grumman (Specially for Surveillance) Credit: Northrop Grumman Credit: Northrop Grumman

12 UAV Communication A d k 1 2 d h An operator s command takes 1.2 seconds to reach the drone via a satellite link

13 How Does the UAV work?

14 MQ-1 1. Rotax 914F turbocharged four-cylinder engine, 115 hp (86 kw) MQ-9 1. Honeywell TP turboprop engine, 950 SHP (712 kw) mph (225 km/h) mph (482 km/h) 3. 2 Hellfire Missiles Hellfire missiles 4. Wingspan: : 48.7 ft (14.8m) 4. Wingspan: 66 ft (20m) Height: 6.9 ft (2.1 m) Height: 12.5 ft (3.6 m) Empty weight: 1,130 lb(512 kg) Empty weight: 3,700 lb (2200 Max takeoff weight: 2, lb kg) (1021 kg) Max takeoff weight: 10,500 lb (4760 kg) The edges of the wings are titanium and are dotted with microscopic weeping holes that allow an ethylene glycol solution to seep out of internal reservoirs and breakdown ice that forms on the wings during flight.

15 Advantages Real time imagery, assistance for ground force Natural disaster for the surveillance of survivors Atmospheric and scientific research Transportable Civilians death Disadvantages Lightweight, susceptible to high winds and precipitation Loss of respect for foreign soldiers Decision Making Issues

16 Future Developments Replace existing aerial fighting g force with drones Allows pilots to be safer Different drones for different uses

17 High Altitude, Long Endurance 5 year duration Equipped with sophisticated surveillance equipment Cheaper than satellites solar-powered-uav-can-stay-aloft-years/

18 Future Small Scale Drones Hover Capabilities Easier to use Requires very little training i

19 Economics and Marketability Raven Predator Assembly Field-assembly Complex manufacturing Controls Video- game like Exhaustive 32 week pilot piloting training Fuel Rechargeable battery Liquid aerospace fuel

20 Economics and Marketability Raven Predator Unit cost $56,000 $5,000,000 Operational Cost Negligible $5,000/hour System Cost $250,000 $40,000,000 Adaptability Used globally Used by US for highly specialized missions Marketability Sold to allies Limited sharing at a premium

21 Conclusion Drones are the future of unmanned surveillance and warfare Different types and sizes of drones yield different mission- specific results as well as different cost-effectiveness outcomes Currently, the military at large will continue to place orders for small drones like the raven, while more specialized missions, such as those conducted by the DoD or CIA require a more heavy-duty drone Each type of drone will find its place in an evolving technological, political, and economic battlefield
