NOVA: Spies That Fly

Aired on PBS 2/24/04
This was a pretty cool program. It provided a history of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and historical information about their uses. It also discussed the evolution from spy planes (like the U-2) to satellite to predator. It also discussed projects in development like Global Hawk and Dragon Eye. What they didn't discuss is multiple UAVs interoperating in a network not ground controlled. I really think this is where science is going. I just ran across UAV Forum. It appears to be a pretty helpful site.
