The article examines several unmanned systems used in urban warfare. According to the author, the ideal drones for general reconnaissance missions are fixed-wing mini and micro ones flying at speed such as the Elbit Systems Skylark mini drones used by the Israeli troops during Cast Lead Operation in Gaza. U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq are using ground robots for reconnaissance operations. The capabilities of the Urban-Unattended Ground Sensors (U-UGS) developed by Textron with Honeywell are noted.
