ARMY AL&T UAVs Thrive With PEO IEW&S Payloads, Ground Assets Brandon Pollachek A s Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have become increasingly more important to military operations, so, too, has the role that the Program Executive Office Intelligence, Electronic Warfare, and Sensors (PEO IEW&S) plays in supporting the U.S. military’s eyes in the sky. The Fire Scout will carry the TSP as well as STARLite, which will provide the future system with SAR/GMTI.

These payloads offer two important capabili- ties to our warﬁghting decision makers. In the GMTI mode, “the radar senses and tracks moving targets on the ground,” said LTC Terrence Howard, PdM RUS. As an example, he explained that, “If you have a series of vehicles on the ground, [GMTI] tracks the movement of those targets. Although you cannot positively identify those moving targets, this capability allows for situational awareness [SA] of move- ment that might be of importance to operations. These systems are especially important on poor visibility days when camera technology does not work as well.” The CSP and STARLite will provide the Sky Warrior with a broad spectrum of coverage, allowing the system to be an all-in-one tool for conducting ISR missions.
