The ISR Special Report 2009 leads with a snapshot of the active global Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) market at 1st March 2009. Analysis is presented by geographic region and role, identifying the leading types by fleet size and average age. We also preview the next generation of ISR manned platforms and modification programmes. Finally, we turn our attention to the current major unmanned military platforms which feature the leading manufacturers. We include key specification data, cutaways, general arrangements and images, and to supplement this we also incorporate an extract from Flight’s UAV database in a directory type listing which covers more than 100 platforms.
