The U.S. Army has made a significant investment in small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) over the last ten years. They use these primarily for the ISR mission attaching them to tactical maneuver units. One of the primary systems they have developed is the Raven manufactured and supported by AeroVironment (AVAV). Yesterday the Army awarded a contract to purchase a further sixty-three of the systems worth over $11 million.

This is on the heels of orders for the U.S.M.C. and upgrade kits for systems currently in service. The U.S. military plans further development and investment of all types of UAV to support their operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
