Launchers for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are portable devices that support remote placement of ways to launch self-piloted aircraft. These drone UAS aircraft can carry cameras, sensors, communications equipment or other payloads. UAVs are smaller than manned aircraft. They are cost-effectively stored and transported creating the need for portable launchers. The UAS do not need an airfield to take off, creating significant UAVs make significant contributions to the fighting capability of operational war forces.
