using drones instead of enemy forces.
Deadly uncharged batteries[8
Drones are used by the military as weapons and for reconnaissance missions in enemy territory. This technology is very strategic because it is cost-effective and does not result in casualties if discovered. The man in question attached a plastic explosive device to a smart drone and sent it to a pre-selected target (a nearby town where British army troops are based). However, the drone\’s battery was not fully charged and the RTH process was automatically triggered before it reached the target
Return To Home
This stands for Return To Home, a feature that almost all drones with GPS receivers have. It can be used to set what happens to the drone if the battery level drops below a certain threshold. The drone will either stop in mid-air and hover, land safely, or return to a location marked “home.” Presumably to prevent fighters from losing too many drones in the field.
The man paid the price for his mistake
And before the drone could deliver its charge to the intended target and destroy it, it triggered the aforementioned RTH and began boomeranging back to the pilot. When the drone returned over the head of the Islamic State fighter, there was no way to save the man. The drone immediately exploded and he died on the spot.
The Drone Threat
Although this terroristwas able to eliminatehimself, drones are a major threat to local soldiers. For example, customized DJI Phantom drones are widely used by insurgents to carry explosives and as flying bombs. Armed drones with grenades in a tube attached to the drone are also effective.
