UAV Squadrons

 

Fleet Composite squadrons' primary missions include providing fixed wing and helicopter services to the Fleet in support of the United States and Allied operational training exercises and operating the Navy's only operational Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). This aircraft is utilized primarily in reconnaissance missions. Tactical employment of this unique asset primarily supports both Battle Group deployments and Amphibious Warfare Operations (Ref. [14] of List of United States Navy aircraft squadrons - Wikipedia & Navy web site).

COMOPTEVFOR [Commander, Operational Test and Evaluation Force]

 

Operational Test & Evaluation, FY 1996 "The V-22 demonstrated several capabilities (speed, range/payload, maneuver envelope) not achievable by current medium-lift helicopters. Accordingly, the V-22 tiltrotor brings new tactics and unique capabilities not common to helicopters."

 

Operational Test & Evaluation, FY 1997 "The MV-22 will replace the current Marine Corps assault helicopters in the medium lift category (CH-46E and CH-53D), contributing to the dominant maneuver of the Marine landing force, as well as supporting focused logistics in the days following commencement of an amphibious operation. The Air Force requires the CV-22 to provide a long-range VTOL insertion and extraction capability and to supplement the Special Operations Forces (SOF) MC-130 aircraft in precision engagement (Ref. http://www.navair.navy.mil/v22/?fuseaction=history.main):

 

HISTORY

CIVILIAN SPIN-OFF

IT'S A HELICOPTER - IT'S A PLANE

STRAIGHT UP INTO THE BLUE

NASA XV-15 Tiltrotor Page "Two of the most versatile aircraft ever designed were tested in a joint NASA-Army research program. The XV-15 Tiltrotor Research Aircraft combined standard aircraft cruise flight with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities."

"While the BellBoeing 609 Civil Tiltrotor took less than two years to design, the two companies that jointly developed it have been at the forefront of modern tiltrotor aeronautical development from its earliest days. Bell and Boeing involvement in the design and test of tiltrotor vehicles and models extends back over 40 years, to the mid-1950s."

When Bell Helicopter Textron and Boeing Company announced that they would build a revolutionary new tilt-rotor aircraft, the superlatives flew. Bell chairman Webb Joiner suggested that construction of the tilt-rotor, a helicopter-airplane hybrid, would be as important as "the very beginning of manned flight itself."

"Tiltrotors, which take off like a helicopter but fly like an airplane, have made their military debut. Can civilian applications be far behind?"

 

Test and Evaluation squadrons test everything from basic aircraft flying qualities to advanced aerodynamics. VX-1 and VX-9 report to the Commander, Operational Test and Evaluation Force (OPTEVFOR) (Ref. List of United States Navy aircraft squadrons - Wikipedia & Navy web site).
