The Robots Are Coming, The Robots Are Coming

Back in the 1970s I worked for a while on UAVs (Unmannded Autonomous Vehicles), basically drones used for surveillance. They have been developed far more now than they were then, but the ideas are the same. The UAV doesn't require all the equipment that supports the pilot and so can be much more weight efficient and also they can be built to have higher performance than a man can handle. As technology gets smaller, more powerful, and cheaper the capability of UAVs just gets better and better. This video shows some of Israeli drone technology. There is of course much much more.
