Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) also known as "combat drones" is the name of a new class of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). They differ from ordinary UAVs, because they are designed for weapons delivery (attack targets) possibly with a great degree of autonomy. Current UCAV concepts call for an aircraft which would be able to operate virtually autonomously. It will be programmed with route and target details, and conduct the mission without help from human controllers.
The history of UCAV is closely tied to the general history of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) since UCAVs are a specialized development or offshoot of Unmanned Air Vehicles. UAVs could be used for reconnaissance. It was obvious that they could also be used for active combat missions, at least in principle.
The UCAV would use stealth technologies and carry precision-guided weapons such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) or precision miniature munitions, such as the Small-Diameter Bomb to suppress enemy air defenses. Controllers could use real-time data sources, including satellites, to plan for and respond to changes on and around the battlefield.UCAVs missions would be conducted by an operator in a ground vehicle, warship, or control aircraft over a high speed digital data link. The operator would not really be flying the UCAV directly, however, since the robot would be able to handle the details of flight operations by itself, leaving the operator in a supervisory role. The UCAV would be able to complete its mission autonomously if communications were cut.
