UAV wanted to aid anti-terrorism

The Air Force is looking for a tactical, remote-controlled air vehicle for security and counterterrorism efforts at its Air Mobility Command at McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey.

The technology must be able to switch between electro-optical and infrared-optical capabilities. It should weigh no more than 40 pounds and be transportable by one person. The UAV should have a loiter speed of more than 40 knots and a sprint speed of more than 80 knots, with a loiter time of eight hours. There will be no formal RFP, as the Air Force reserves the right to select any, part of or none of the proposals it receives.

Responses are due June 18. Contact Michael Corson at michael.corson@
