SABRE is the 65th CAP worldwide, an all-time record.
The MQ-9 Reaper is an armed, multi-mission, medium-altitude, long-endurance remotely piloted aircraft
that is employed primarily as an intelligence-collection asset and secondarily against dynamic execution
targets. Given its significant loiter time, wide-range sensors, multi-mode communications suite, and
precision weapons -- it provides a unique capability to perform strike, coordination, and reconnaissance
against high-value, fleeting, and time-sensitive targets.
The basic crew consists of a rated pilot to control the aircraft and command the mission, and enlisted aircrew
member to operate sensors and weapons as well as a mission coordinator, when required. To meet combatant commanders' requirements, the Reaper delivers tailored capabilities using mission kits containing various weapons and sensor payload combinations.
