The Orbiter #UAV
inside the Aeronautics Defense Systems factory in Yavne, Israel. This highly autonomous drone can locate and track moving targets while piloting itself along a patrol route with minimal human control.
Israel pioneered the use of aerial drones in the 1970’s and 80’s, first integrating the technology into combat operations during wars with Lebanon and other Arab nations. Early experience on the battlefield aided the development of a robust drone industry that has emerged as one of the top global exporters of unmanned vehicles in the world. -
