As outlined in the Joint Cargo Unmanned Aerial Systems Concept of Operations document (attached), combat operations are conducted in a variety of environments (mountainous, desert, forest, jungle, at sea, and in urban/complex terrain) that are often characterized by rugged terrain and obstacles to ground vehicle transportation. In support of distributed operations, many Combat OutPosts (COPs) are located in obscure locations. Some missions can be conducted up to hundreds of miles from Forward Operating Bases (FOBs). The extended lines of communication between forces and their FOBs are at risk of enemy ambush or Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack for both air and ground resupply assets.
