HOW DRONES USE SPACE TECHNOLOGY



This video is a good example of how drones use space technology to fly their deadly missions.

The Global Hawk used by the U.S. Air Force can fly at an altitude of about 18,000 meters, far higher than the cruising altitude of passenger planes. Using high-performance sensors and radar, it can monitor an area with a maximum radius of about 550 kilometers. And since there is no flight crew, it can stay aloft for more than 30 hours.

There can be no doubt that drones, and the satellites they use t0 direct them, can be called weapons in space.
