Rare Glimpse Inside A Predator Drone Control Station

“Once closely guarded military secrets, remotely operated unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are now widely known to play a vital role in modern wars. But while most people recognize that UAS are extremely important, they usually don’t know how they are controlled and by whom.”

Navy’s 757-Sized Drone Will Provide Big-Time Surveillance
http://www.wired.com/2014/01/triton/
“A NEW DRONE with the mammoth wingspan of a Boeing 757 is set to give the U.S. Navy some serious surveillance power.”

How Drones Are Controlled
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/national/drone-crashes/how-drones-work/
“Seven models of military drones are involved in the great majority of crashes. The loss of a link between the drone and the ground-control station is a prevalent cause of catastrophic failure. Most drones can operate autonomously for a large amount of time, but if contact is not recovered they will crash after spending their fuel.”

    Thank you for captioning!

    “They are unarmed” nahhhhhhhhhhhhh bro

  4. prakas nathen on March 15, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Hi seekers I’ve been a staunch follower of seekers, I have a question is black knight satellite real and are they actually drones? Been instigated…

  5. ThePaalanBoy on March 15, 2021 at 12:25 am

    american Logic: makes drones more safe and more fuel efficiency to fly than a normal airplane -_-

  6. Moepowerplant on March 15, 2021 at 12:26 am

    In the 21st century we will have flying cars. It happened, except it’s just the flying.

  7. Brandon Austria on March 15, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Bringing American democracy worldwide one drone at a time.

  8. Andrew Jansen on March 15, 2021 at 12:27 am

    now heres a question: could we build a drone space shuttle that can shoot 150 nuclear warheads all at once at an asteroid similar to the way a 12 gauge launces pellets at said target?

  9. Jay YouTube on March 15, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Lol.. Iran knows how they work. Ask them

  10. Osiris Malkovich on March 15, 2021 at 12:28 am

    I’m wondering why we still have pilots for commercial flights. Drone pilots would be much safer.

  11. Collin Miguel on March 15, 2021 at 12:33 am

    TRACE what happened to all your enthusiasm!!!!:(

    Please do a 2018 special?

  14. United States of Embarrassment on March 15, 2021 at 12:37 am

    lol, the Triton is nowhere near the size of a 757. Wingspan isn’t everything.

  15. Maxwell Productions on March 15, 2021 at 12:37 am

    I don’t trust drones. Especially AI’s.

  16. thesourkroutkid on March 15, 2021 at 12:37 am

    they have drones yet they want your guns how is that fair

  17. Marinegirl Powers on March 15, 2021 at 12:38 am

    So cool

  18. BjarkeDuDe on March 15, 2021 at 12:38 am

    Drone blow up dolls.

  19. Maverick2w1 on March 15, 2021 at 12:38 am

    The terminology in this video is about a 3 years out of date. In late 2012 the Air Force stopped called it’s "drones" UAS/UAV and instead opted for RPA or Remotely Piloted Aircraft to avoid the confusion that was mentioned in the video about autonomous flight.

  20. joey shy on March 15, 2021 at 12:40 am

    this dude gave me butt aids… like straight up. lol xd lmao rofl!!!

  21. RafaelloCraiova on March 15, 2021 at 12:40 am

    I love DNews, but Trace’s hair is stupid and distracting. Other than that, keep posting!

  22. bloodandwinearered on March 15, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Not a big drone fan, but you are right.  "They are here to stay".

  25. z u on March 15, 2021 at 12:44 am

    not informative enough. contemplating dislike.

  26. Yesse López on March 15, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Well, I doubt those things will be used to deliver pizza. I see them more like killing people worldwide. NOT A FAN.

  27. NetworKing on March 15, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Or Skynet takes over.

  28. Spartan boi on March 15, 2021 at 12:48 am

    I know what that space drone is for.

  29. TheRuthlessbulldog on March 15, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Guns don’t kill people, drones don’t kill people. Only people kill people

  30. Jo bko on March 15, 2021 at 12:51 am

    It weights 2459 weasels *(10 tons)*, flying at the incredible speed "eagle 2" *(1200 km/h)* and can hold up to 3594,47 around-half-sized baby owls *(25 cubic liters)* ..

  33. Peter Fuhrey on March 15, 2021 at 12:53 am

    So what is the difference between a drone and a robot? Especially with robots being able to self learn these days?

  34. TwistedPuppy on March 15, 2021 at 12:55 am

    I wonder how many drones are being used to smuggle drugs into the US.

  35. Xpert Beef on March 15, 2021 at 12:56 am

    nice video helped me alot with my presentation

  36. SpacemanApeINC on March 15, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Many people theorize that the Space Shuttle Drone will be used as some sort of space bomber, but I think it will be just used for space exploration, and NASA would save alot more money since these Space Shuttle Drones are Rumoured to be reusable.

  37. Snowman on March 15, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Does anyone else think _Trace_ _Dominguez_ is such a cool name?

  38. Andres Lorduy on March 15, 2021 at 1:01 am

    I hate his hair so much

  39. John Miles on March 15, 2021 at 1:02 am

    if I can interject. they should be called automated bombers. drone sounds so nice, clean, and unthreatening. name things after what they do, not as a PR stunt. we need to put a stop to doublespeak

  40. Rob The Fandom Menace on March 15, 2021 at 1:02 am

    The episode of DNews was not sponsored by the United States Air Force.
    But they were probably happy with it.

    hhhmmmmm…… thinking face……

  41. Bucktooth Bill on March 15, 2021 at 1:02 am

    All airliners can be struck by lightning and can still fly. Lightning doesn’t affect closed planes like that. It happens all the time and pilots keep flying. Only thing it does is scare the passengers.

  42. Chris Sanchez on March 15, 2021 at 1:02 am

    This is how skynet began… When will we learn from films?!

  43. Blair Phillips on March 15, 2021 at 1:04 am

    We saw one friday night…yes friday night about 10.00 p,m, heading towards the Niagara Falls AFB. It was travelling from west to east at about 2500 ft AGL. I was travelling about 60 knots. The Flight Service Station at the Niagara District airport closes at 9:00 p.m. but an aircraft very close to it did fly underneath it. We checked for a PIREP(pilot report) and none had been reported that evening. Toronto Area Controlled Air Space might have picked it up but we did not contact them. Should American drones be flying in Canadian Air Space? Was it on a planned or unplanned flight? Was it armed? If so, was the weapon nuclear? These questions are real and PM Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party of Canada  don’t care. It’s up to you.

  44. Jay YouTube on March 15, 2021 at 1:04 am

    Lol.. Iran knows how they work. Ask them

  45. Amin The Great on March 15, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Hi, I’m from the future. And yes we use drone to deliver pizza nowadays.

  46. syed zubair on March 15, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Drone strikes killed innocent people than bad people. US gov should apologise.

  47. Bearospace Insider on March 15, 2021 at 1:06 am

    The first weaponized drone was in world war 1 , not the predator.
    Thanks for emphasizing that drones have Good uses, and they are not inherently bad, and it’s up to the people in the end, just as always!

  48. Edward Hyde on March 15, 2021 at 1:12 am

    The Shark-/Dolphin ones really took the cake for me.

  49. Red User on March 15, 2021 at 1:16 am

    1:30 UNEXPECTED BRRRRRRRRRRT

  50. raul chavira on March 15, 2021 at 1:16 am
