Abstract
Recent military and civil actions worldwide
have highlighted the potential utility for
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Both fixed
wing and rotary aircraft have contributed
significantly to the success of several military
and surveillance/rescue operations. Future
combat operations will continue to place
unmanned aircraft in challenging conditions
such as the urban warfare environment.
However, the poor reliability, reduced autonomy
and operator workload requirements of current
unmanned vehicles present a roadblock to their
success. It is anticipated that future operations
will require multiple UAVs performing in a
