In response to a request from the Office of Naval Research, the National Research Council established the Committee for the Review of ONR 's Uninhabited Combat Air Vehicles Program, under the auspices of the Naval Studies Board, to conduct a study as follows:

An assessment of the science and technology issues relating to the Office of Naval Research's (ONR) program for uninhabited combat air vehicles (UCAV) will be conducted. The review will evaluate ONR' s UCAV technology activities, including vision documents and science and technology roadmap (in areas of vehicle dynamics, communications, sensors, and autonomous agents) against criteria which the committee will select such as the relevance for meeting future naval priorities, cost and time scale for utilization, duplication of effort, and scientific and technical quality.
