Royal Air Force - RPAS

The Reaper is a medium altitude long endurance (MALE) Remotely Piloted Air System (RPAS). The Reaper's primary mission is to act as an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) asset, employing sensors to provide real-time data to commanders and intelligence specialists at all levels. Its secondary mission is to provide pilot-commanded kinetic effect to Land Force commanders for fleeting targets that “pop up” in the battlespace and also to provide Close-Air-Support (CAS) options to the Reaper’s supported unit.
