The military has been under a lot of eyes recently for the way that they use drones, but there are actually several different ways that drones are used in the armed forces. These types of aerial vehicles have revolutionized the way that the modern military works and has allowed many people to perform their duties without having to leave their home base or without having to put their lives in danger.
Armed attacks from Predator Drones using Hellfire missiles have become more and more common in the Middle East. These have been used in the US to attack al-Qaeda leaders in countries like Pakistan and Uzbekistan, although it is uncertain how much of this will continue in the future. The military has also begun using fighter jets that have been converted into drones in order to train human pilots in combat conditions. These remote control planes effectively act as aerial targets for them. Finally, the military of countries like Japan have begun using drones as a part of maritime patrol operations, so that they can monitor remote places without having to ship their personnel there.
What will the military uses look like in the future? That may be a topic for another day, but there is no reason to think that they aren’t going to find new, incredible ways of using the latest technology.
