        Pilotless Flight: Timeline of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

        This interactive timeline from NOVA charts the evolution of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), from their earliest incarnations as bomb-dropping balloons and camera-equipped surveillance kites, to the development of highly engineered prototypes with stealth capability and palm-sized dimensions. Learn how UAVs play a valuable role not just in military arsenals but also in other areas, such as geographical surveys and environmental studies.
