|Summary||Distributed Maritime Operations (DMO) requires surveillance and targeting information on enemy warships at a great distance. Current DMO CONEMPS/CONOPS and Navy Strategy on Medium/Large USV operations need to apply to USV/UAV teaming in ISR-T capabilities. In a satellite denied environment, UAVs may be launched from USVs to provide an ISR-T capability, possibly a UAV small enough to fit on an MUSV, with a 200 nm range/24-hour airborne capability. We expect to find how potential C3 concepts for employment and utilization apply to the UOC and what current commercial, defense & government UAV options are available for ISR-T, to include recovery and refueling aboard the USV or recovering at a shore site. Our findings will be able to lead to recommendations in leading to using USV/UAV teaming in the ISR-T arena.|
