Transcript of History of Flight
Thanks for Watching!!!
This concludes my prezintation
(there's one more slide!) Some of my sources were, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_unmanned_aerial_vehicles
, http://www.thenation.com/article/166124/brief-history-drones#http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seGfyTp3n1s&playnext=1&list=PLD068A3E5ACA3956C&feature=results_video, the library was a helpful source, and KLRN. The first time UAVs were used in flight was in 1987 by using tailless jet steering. A growth field in UAVs are mini UAVs, ranging from "micro air vehicles" that are 1millimeter in volume to man-portable UAVs. The idea of designing a UAV that could remain in the air for a long time has been around for decades, but only became a reality in the 21st century. Endurance UAVs for low-altitude and "high-altitude long-endurance (HALE) UAVs are now in full service. To start off, a little introduction! The idea of using UAVs as a cheaper alternative to satellites goes back at least to the late 1950s, with studies focused on UAVs with new forms of thrust using microwave beamed power. Even NASA became interested in beamed power for space works, an added a new antennae used for receving information. In 1987, the Canadian Communications Research Center (CCRC) used such an improved rectenna to power a UAV as part of the "Stationary High Altitude Relay Platform" project. So as you can see, lots of people, not just NASA and the CCRC actually liked drones a lot, and added lots of new features to them, like arms, shields and, as I described, a new rectenna. But
drones werent always Used
for warfare Although UAVs existed, control for them didn't just yet. Control was achieved using gyroscopes developed by Elmer Sperry of the Sperry Gyroscope Company. Later, in November 1917, the Automatic Airplane (this time with control) was flown for representatives of the US Army. This led the army to commission a project to build the "aerial torpedo", resulting in the Kettering Bug which first flew in 1918. While the Bug's revolutionary technology was successful, it was not in time to fight in the war, which ended before it could be fully developed and deployed. Jet engines were applied after World War II, in types as the Firebee I of 1951, while companies like Beech Craft also got in the game with their model for the U Navy in 1955. Nevertheless, they were no more than remote-controlled planes until the Vietnam Era.The August 2 and August 4, 1964, clash initiated America's UAVs into their first combat missions of the Vietnam War. Did you like the video? So as you can see, UAVs come in all shapes, sizes, ways, and forms to meet the needs that they were created for. Wether they be trucks, planes, trains, or anything else you can think of, lets face it...
UAVs ARE AWESOME Hello and welcome to my
prezi! This prezi will be focusing on the history of drones ; all around them. I think you will be suprised about what you hear. Ten things most people don't know about drones 1: The first armed drones were created to get Bin Laden. 2: Drones tend to crash. 3: Drones are coming to america. (U.S. Customs and Border Protection already operates eight Predator drones) 4: The scope of U.S. military drone missions is expanding... 5: …But not as fast as civilian uses. 6: Most drones don't bomb. 7. Attack drones require more people.
8. Drones are becoming a lethal weapon.
9. Other countries are catching up to the United States.
10. The drone future is already here.
