Description: The US Army Shadow 200 Tactical Unmanned Air Vehicle (TUAV) Ground Segment includes an UAV hydraulic rail launcher, a ground control station, a portable ground control station in transit cases, a remote video terminal, an aerial vehicle transport, and a remote ground data terminal. The Shadow 200 ground segment is operated by a crew of 22 people. Each Shadow 200 system includes 3 TUAVs and the ground control segment with 2 control stations, one portable ground control station, one remote video terminal inside two transit cases, modular mission payloads, and 4 ground data terminals. The TUAV requires the hydraulic rail launcher to takeoff and can land conventionally or through a deployable arresting hook. The ground control station is mounted on a HMMWV vehicle and has been made with proven hardware and software. The ground data terminal includes transceivers and an antenna system with ease of use for communications.

The Shadow 200 TUAV system was deployed successfully for the first time during operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan (2001). The US Army plans to procure up to 41 Shadow 200 systems. The Stryker-equipped brigades will be the first military units operating the Shadow 200 TUAV system. A whole RQ-7 Shadow 200 system is transportable by two C-130 aircraft.
