That history is punctuated by a series of technological developments that have allowed unmanned aircraft to gradually emerge from the shadow of the manned platform. The first driver for the development of unmanned aircraft came from the military. They could see the potential, even in the early stages of the evolution of manned air platforms. Since then, a number of operational drivers have also emerged that have had a catalyzing effect upon the development of unmanned aircraft. Not least among these is the development of asymmetric warfare and counter-insurgency operations.

Problems have arisen when UMA have been adapted to be able to be manually flown for part of the mission: a technique used in the Soviet Union in the early days when the pilot then ejected before the UMA was destroyed by an intercepting aircraft.

His thoughts were then interrupted as the car lurched over a divot in the road and he quickly focused again on the matter in hand. For Kashmiri, Mir Ali and the local environs seemed to have become a new locus of drone attacks in the past few weeks. The attack on 16 May was far too close. He had lost four friends that day to the sting of the wasp. The single Hellfire missile had targeted a compound literally a few hundred metres away from this own hideaway from where he had plotted the attacks in Mumbai and the recently highly successful 17-hour-long occupation of the Pakistani naval base in Mehran near Karachi.
