This study investigates and evaluates Mini-RPV launch concepts potentially suitable for the U. S. Army tactical environment. The air vehicle on which the launch study is based is the U. S. Army/Lockheed Aquila XMQM-105 Mini-RPV at a nominal gross weight of 120 pounds. A hypothetical RPV counterpart at 200 pounds gross weight is also used to bound the upper weight limit for Mini-RPVs. As a result of the Mini-RPV concept investigations and evaluations, it is recommended that in-depth studies be initiated to provide information for higher level evaluations based on detailed technical definitions related to both the pneumatic and the rocket-boosted systems. Additionally, information on the effects of parachute recovery on RPV and launcher design parameters is provided.
