Abstract
This research was conducted in support of two upcoming studies: a study regarding manned versus unmanned aircraft for various defence missions and tasks, and a review of peacetime attrition for various classes of aircraft, including both manned and unmanned. The attrition rates for selected unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), such as Predator, Pioneer, and Hunter were researched and compared to the Canadian Forces’ experience with the Sperwer system. Attrition will be dependent on the experience level of the organization employing the aircraft, and the maturity of the aircraft system itself. This relationship is investigated using linear regression analysis.
