DARPA drones shall carry mission adaptable payloads to switch missions mid flight from intelligence, command and control, networking to combat operations

UAS are used as force multipliers. They provide real-time Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) information on remote targets and areas, as well as damage assessment and electronic warfare. They are also commonly used in border control as well as anti-terror operations. Today, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) typically require multiple payloads with dedicated components, …
