This important Department of Defense document, issued by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, presents a comprehensive study of the reliability of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The combined U.S. military UAV fleet (Predators, Pioneers, and Hunters) reached the 100,000 cumulative flight hour mark, a milestone that is a good point at which to assess the reliability of these UAVs.
