The Predator UAV provided military commanders with an Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform capable of flying over dangerous areas for extended periods without risk to a human pilot. In flight, the UAV and its on-board sensors are controlled by the ground crew with a direct data link. The Predator can provide live video, still photographs, or radar imagery in all weather conditions, day or night and can successfully fire a laser-guided anti-tank missile at a stationary target. It was equipped with a turbo-charged Rotax 914 engine producing 105 horsepower and weighs 950 pounds.
