There has been a lot of press in the last few years on UCAVs or for those not in the know Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles. Currently they are being
devolped as Reconnisance drones, weapons platforms, and first strike bombers. What other uses do you, the forumites here at ATS see UCAVs being used
for? One idea is a long endurance UCAV orbiting on station around the us equipped with long range missles whch could be used as an alternative to
lasers in the ballistic missle shield program. Another is as a ground troop support role. But what else? What do you think the flying robots of the
future will do?
