The General Atomics MQ-1 Predator is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) built by General Atomics and used mainly by the United States Air Force (USAF) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The USAF describes the Predator as a “Tier II” MALE UAS (medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aircraft system). The Predator is an armed, multi-mission, medium-altitude, long-endurance remotely piloted aircraft that is used mainly as an intelligence-collection asset and secondarily against dynamic execution targets. Given its significant loiter time, wide-range sensors, multi-mode communications suite, and precision weapons, it provides a unique capability to perform strike, coordination and reconnaissance (SCAR) against high-value, fleeting, and time-sensitive targets.
Predators can also perform the following missions and tasks: intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, close air support, combat search and rescue, precision strike, buddy-lase, convoy/raid over watch, route clearance, target development, and terminal air guidance. The MQ-1’s capabilities make it uniquely qualified to conduct irregular warfare operations in support of combatant commander objectives. The UAS consists of four aircraft or “air vehicles” with sensors, a ground control station (GCS), and a primary satellite link communication suite. Following 2001, the MQ-1 Predator became the primary unmanned aircraft used for offensive operations by the USAF and the CIA in Afghanistan and the Pakistani tribal areas; it has also been deployed elsewhere. Civilian applications have included border enforcement and scientific surveys, and to monitor wind direction and other characteristics of large forest fires such as those seen in California.
