    U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Ian D. Lowe, Unmanned Logistics Systems-Air (ULS-A) operator, Combat Logistics Battalion 8, shows how to start the Tactical Resupply Unmanned Aircraft System (TRUAS) during a demonstration at DZ Cockatoo on Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, March 29, 2023. Combat Development and Integration demonstrated the TRUAS, programming the ULS-A to carry a payload over a short distance, drop it at a specified location in the landing zone and return to its staring point. The TRUAS has a 9-mile range and maximum payload of 150 pounds, which is sufficient to fly in ammunition, food, medical supplies, and batteries, among other supplies. This small system only requires two Marines to operate and will be a game-changing capability for our distributed forces. Fielding this capability is a critical step in setting conditions for the development of the ULS-A Medium system, which is the required capability for large-scale tactical distribution in a contested space.
