MISSION AIRCRAFT

MQ-1 PREDATOR

MQ-1 PREDATOR

The Predator might be a remotely piloted aircraft, but it takes a team of highly trained airmen to make its missions successful. The pilot can be located anywhere in the world, gathering information and directing attacks on enemies. Missions include close air support, air interdiction, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).

MQ-9 REAPER

MQ-9 REAPER

The Reaper aircraft lives up to its grim name. This remotely piloted aircraft provides a unique capability to find and eliminate high-value, time-sensitive targets. Its significant loiter time, wide-range sensors, multi-mode communications and precision weapons, give it the unique capability to locate, track, target, strike, and assess time sensitive targets (TSTs). Reaper's expanded capabilities include: intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), close air support (CAS), combat search and rescue (CSAR), precision strike, buddy-laser, convoy/raid overwatch, route clearance, target development and terminal air guidance.
