Kawasaki KAQ-1 Drone

The Kawasaki KAQ-1 drone, along with other remotely piloted vehicles, was used for many purposes by the military. Originally used for the training of anti-aircraft gunnery or air-to-air missile training, they have found many different roles in the modern day. They have become increasingly important in atmospheric research, reconnaissance and even provide real-time video target information for Navy vessels.

Built by Kawasaki, the KAQ-1 is a radio controlled, unmanned miniature aircraft. It was launched from a ramp, and if not destroyed, was recovered by parachute. The parachute was rigged to the engine mounts, so even if the drone was damaged or destroyed, the engine could be recovered and reused.

The KAQ-1 was delivered to the armed forces of both the U.S. and Japan for use during the 1950's.
