High Speed Drones for ISR / OODA

advantages of drones across ISR framework

The role of time and space in ISR and OODA (incident response) integration. High speed drones. With drones the functional specifications that often receive the most attention typically are:  flight time, and payload.  Long flight times does not help when it comes to longer range missions. If in responding to an incident, it arrives at a target destination too …
