Drone Warfare - The Development of Unmanned Aerial Conflict

Un unmanned aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot on board. Its flight is either controlled autonomously by computers in the vehicle, or under the remote control of a navigator or pilot on the ground or in another vehicle.
Blending history with current and recent operations, Dr Sloggett sets out to put the record straight. In some quarters of the press drones get a bad press and there has been much controversy over their deployment, some of which is not deserved.

The book reveals the history of unmanned aircraft, their recent development and why they have emerged onto the scene. Why did the US, for example, really invest highly in drone technology? When did all that start? What barriers had to be overcome? What was there before drones arrived?
The book also analyses their operations in Iraq in Gulf War Two and more recently Afghanistan. What roles did drones play? Where they successful? What new developments emerged during operations? Did they save lives? Further to this is a detailed look at case studies where they have been used trying to remove some of the incorrect reporting - putting the record straight based on evidence. How many have been shot down and where?

The book then looks at strategic uses of drones at present: Iran is being monitored; they are already in action over parts of Africa; what are other countries doing - China, Iran? Turkey?
The RAF's use of drones, their deployment and operations is considered along with important questions such as where this goes for the future. What are the issues? Will all air forces be drone based in the future? What other applications may arise in the civilian market?

Drohnen - Unbemannte Krieger der Lüfte

In den letzten Jahren haben sich Drohnen im militärischen Bereich massiv durchgesetzt: Sie sind nicht mehr nur unbewaffnete Übungsziele, sondern werden auch für Überwachungsaufgaben und in Offensivrollen zum Einsatz gebracht.
Der Kampfpilot von heute kann morgens zum Stützpunkt fahren, von dort aus einen Drohnen-Einsatz absolvieren und nach Dienstschluss wieder zu Hause sein.

Drones : An Illustrated Guide to the Unmanned Aircraft That are Filling Our Skies

One of the most significant developments in contemporary warfare is the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones as they are more commonly known. Drones can fly autonomously or be controlled by remote control - their deployment is transforming the way wars are fought across the globe. Drones are not only used for fighting wars but for a wide-range of daily tasks such as photography, mapping, policing, delivery, search and rescue, meteorology and many more.

"Drones" explores the history behind unmanned aircraft, it explains how they work and features the most well-known military and civilian drones in action today. From the armed and deadly MQ-9 Reaper, the long endurance RQ-4 Global Hawk to the small hand-launched Cropcam and the Remus autonomous underwater vehicle.

Illustrated with 200 colour photographs and artworks, "Drones" is an exciting, accessibly written narrative about the latest in military and civilian aviation technology.
