Here’a a very cool  video overview of some of the significant UAV development to come from NASA Drysen. Not only is it an interesting historical piece, it’s fun and fascinating to see the variety and rapid evolution of these magnificent flying machines (without their men onboard)!

Four Decades of UAV Research at NASA Dryden

NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center has a heritage of developmental and operational experience with unmanned aircraft systems. Spanning from 1969 to the present, this fast-paced visual survey captures nearly a half-century of innovation in environmental and aeronautical research, showing the scope, scale, and variety of unmanned and remotely piloted vehicle projects flown at the center.

I didn’t know much about NASA Dryden and their mission. They have tons of great stuff on their website.

The Dryden Flight Research Center is NASA’s primary center for atmospheric flight research and operations. NASA Dryden is critical in carrying out the agency’s missions of space exploration, space operations, scientific discovery, and aeronautical research and development (R&D).
Located at Edwards, California, in the western Mojave Desert, Dryden is uniquely situated to take advantage of the excellent year-round flying weather, remote area, and visibility to test some of the nation’s most exciting air vehicles.  To learn more…
