Hand Launched UAV Test Case- RQ20 Puma

This test case is based on the Hand Launched UAV template structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the RQ-20 Puma. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the Puma program. No attempt has been made to simulate the Puma design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the hand launched UAV template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known UAV program.
