Lt. Col. Gary Rafnson, deputy chief of capabilities-based planning for ISR at the Air Force, said a draft version of the road map document has approximately 60 pages.

The “2013 Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap” paper outlined the agency’s strategies to expand defense capacities during a time when DoD faced budget uncertainty and included strategies on how the department looked to address anti-access and area-denial threats.
