Military drones By: Parker Sheddan and Bradley Howard

Elmer Sperry and Peter Hewitt made the first unmanned plane drone. They created this to put more pilots out of dangerous situations.
INTENDED BENEFITS: These drones can put pilots out if dangerous situations. They would not have to go into hostile territory. Also since you don't have to put a pilot in it it is smaller and lighter so it can move faster.
UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES: Really good hackers could possibly hack it and drop in the wrong place. It could misfire or drop on civilians. It could also crash and do damage something.

Decrease unintended consequences

They could maybe make it harder to hack. Launch from closer to have less chance of crashing or firing on civilians.
