The 47-page research note provides three U.S. Army acquisition scenarios: two for the RQ-7 UAS and another for an evolving rotary-wing unmanned system. “We initiated this research based upon multiple, independent inquiries, with the knowledge that RQ-7 is still in a delivery phase,” said G2 Solutions Research Director Ron Stearns. “During our research Army announced the cancellation of the Future Combat Systems Class IV UAS, with many in industry wondering how funds would be reallocated, which missions would be prioritized and how these systems would work together.” G2 Solutions believes that within this forecast Army will require a tactical UAV with payload, range and endurance greater than what RQ-7 or system enhancements will be able to provide.

The RQ-7 scenarios depict a partial recapitalization, and a full-system recompete, although both assume a certain level of standardization and backfit/reuse. The rotary-wing UAS assumes a much larger platform optimized for missions such as resupply, communications, ISR and others. Each forecast includes revenues flowing to: the UAV, ground control, sensors as well as components/support. “Depending upon READ MORE >
