MQ-9 Reaper aircrews support a wide range of missions in their day-to-day lives. Check out how our Hunters utilize the MQ-9’s capabilities to keep our troops and coalition forces safe overseas.
The MQ-9 Reaper
The MQ-9 Reaper is a multi-role Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) that provides persistent attack and reconnaissance capabilities.
The aircrew is made up of a pilot and sensor operator who are backed by a team of intelligence professionals.
Each MQ-9 is supported by maintenance crews and other support personnel.
These professional crews perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, close air support, combat search and rescue precision strikes, armed overwatch, and humanitarian relief.
