Switchblade: From Gun-Launched UAV to Precision Strike Loitering Missile System

Imagine a frontline defense that could neutralize your enemy within seconds and save your life and the lives of those around you. The movie 'The Hurt Locker' features a scene in which the protagonists are pinned down overnight by a single sniper. Every time a member of their group peeks over the embankment to fix the location of the sniper, they are shot. Now, imagine if the team possessed a tube-launched air vehicle that they could launch at will and use to find, fix and neutralize the sniper without placing anyone in harm's way. That 'imaginary' frontline defense solution is real, and it's called Switchblade.
