Author Affiliations +
SMARTPOD has been developed as the trials and evaluation test-bed for future United Kingdom ISR requirements. This paper reviews the background to the requirement for such a capability, the details of its implementation and the current plans for its use to support risk reduction and requirements formulation activities for future UK ISR applications. It identifies the key design concepts and the flexibility provided to support multiple trials activities with minimal integration and aircraft availability charges.
