      In the early 1980s, under the Teal Rain program, Darpa began studying endurance unmanned air vehicles. Leading Systems was awarded a contract to develop the Amber UAV, which first flew in 1986 and in 1988 demonstrated an endurance of more than 38 hours. Amber was developed into the Gnat-750, Leading Systems was acquired by General Atomics and the result was the MQ-1 Predator medium-altitude long-endurance UAV. (Photo: Darpa/Leading Systems)
