Information Bulletin: Remotely Piloted Vehicle Threat

On June 7, 2004, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released and UNCLASSIFIED/FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY Information Bulletin entitled Remotely Piloted Vehicle Threat .

The document is a reasonably good introduction to remotely piloted vehicles (RPV) which have received considerable news coverage because of their use by US forces in Iraq. A rich resource of links to information about unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) is here .

The DHS Information Bulletin makes an unusual statement which begins: "Although RCAs (remote controlled aircraft) have not been used by terrorists to date..." DHS may want to review the tactics of the Baader-Meinhof Gang in Germany in the 1970's.
