NASHVILLE – Time and time again, the Army’s unmanned aircraft systems know how to make a good impression.
From the Soldier operator on console to the commander in the field, one display of the capabilities of an unmanned aircraft system as it performs reconnaissance or surveillance for an advancing unit or for an Army helicopter is enough to convince users of its value on the battlefield.
“The capabilities of unmanned aircraft systems are so huge,” Warrant Officer Michael Gray said.
“People make assumptions. They think size matters. They think because these systems are small that they can’t be that sophisticated. But once they see what they can do, that opinion changes.”
