Under the Teal Rain program, Darpa developed the first medium-size endurance UAV. Designed by Israeli engineer Abe Karem, the Leading Systems Amber first flew in November 1986 and in June 1988 set an endurance record of 38 hr. The Amber did not transition to the military, and Leading Systems was acquired by General Atomics, which ultimately evolved the vehicle into the RQ-1 Predator UAV. Photo: AW&ST

General Atomics is offering the certifiable Predator B (CPB) variant to Germany – under the “Guardian Eagle” moniker – which is currently under development and will be production-ready by 2018. Ames says if a contract is signed soon, the CPB could be delivered the same year. The UK has selected the type for its Block 1 Reaper replacement, and Ames notes the certifiable element is something the two nations have in common.


General Atomics Aeronautical Systems has flown the first Predator B Block 1+, an upgrade of what the US Air Force (USAF) calls the MQ-9 Reaper.
