FROM WIKIPEDIA:

TheGeneral Atomics MQ-1 Predator(often referred to as thePredator drone) is an Americanremotely piloted aircraft(RPA) built byGeneral Atomicsthat was used primarily by theUnited States Air Force(USAF) andCentral Intelligence Agency(CIA). Conceived in the early 1990s foraerial reconnaissanceand forward observation roles, the Predator carries cameras and other sensors. It was modified and upgraded to carry and fire twoAGM-114 Hellfiremissilesor other munitions. The aircraft entered service in 1995, and saw combat in thewar in Afghanistan,Pakistan, theNATO intervention in Bosnia,1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, theIraq War,Yemen, the2011 Libyan civil war, the2014 intervention in Syria, andSomalia.

The USAF describes the Predator as a \"Tier II\" MALE UAS (medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aircraft system). The UAS consists of four aircraft or \"air vehicles\" with sensors, aground control station(GCS), and a primary satellite link communication suite.[3]Powered by aRotaxengine and driven by a propeller, the air vehicle can fly up to 400nmi(460mi; 740km) to a target, loiter overhead for 14hours, then return to its base.

The MQ-1 Predator was the primary remotely piloted aircraft used for offensive operations by the USAF and the CIA in Afghanistan and thePakistani tribal areasfrom 2001 until the introduction of theMQ-9 Reaper; it has also been deployed elsewhere. Because offensive uses of the Predator areclassified by the U.S., U.S. military officials have reported an appreciation for the intelligence and reconnaissance-gathering abilities of RPAs but declined to publicly discuss their offensive use.[4]The United States Air Force retired the Predator in 2018, replacing it with the Reaper.[1]

Civilian applications for drones have included border enforcement and scientific studies, and to monitor wind direction and other characteristics of large forest fires (such as the drone that was used by theCalifornia Air National Guardin the August 2013Rim Fire).[5]
