A U.S. Navy SEAL with Naval Special Warfare Group 2 launches a Puma unmanned aircraft system prior to a fast rope exercise somewhere in Europe. Weighing 13 pounds, with a maximum speed of 52 miles per hour, and an endurance of 2 hours, the RQ-20 Puma is a valuable asset for small tactical elements. It provides superb intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities that expand the situational awareness of conventional and Special Operations units.
