The employment of drones within the past decade has skyrocketed since they were first introduced to the spotlight in 2001. Since, there has been a great amount of controversy in relation to the ethics and legality of their usage in military combat. Our group saw this assignment as an excellent opportunity to explore the history of drone technology as well as their capabilities. The purpose of drones has been to keep soldiers distant from harm. However, there are also privacy violations and hazards that accompany the devices themselves. A drone pilot may or may not recognize the dangers associated with their work. However, the reality is that drones can cause far more harm than initially intended.
The research question we attempted to answer is “What are the strategic economic and human effects of the integration of drones on modern warfare?” In our project we wrote three different types of essays to vividly interpret the purpose of drones for people. The definition essay clearly explains what a Drone is, while the Cause & Effect essay explains the consequences of operating a UAV, and finally the narrative essay gives an example of what damage drone technology is capable of.The goal for our title was to create a name that was catchy yet true to the material we were providing and found through research.
