The idea of a drone started during World War I when they tried to build some sort of drone, but didn’t find much. Later, during World War II the idea of a drone was brought up again for flying bombs or aerial torpedoes that could be controlled, but again the product was not of much significance. It was not until 1995 when Abraham Karem invented the predator drone was there a flexible and aerial vehicle while unmanned. The predator drone was designed by Abraham Karem, but was said to have just tried to design a robot that can stay in the air.

“Though UAVs had been used in times of war since World War II, they were revolutionized in 1995 by Karem.”(Air and Space Smithsonian).

At last, over much research and development an efficient and powerful weapon was
