Recently profiled in The Economist, in an article titled “The dronefather”, Abe Karem, founder of Leading Systems, which eventually became the division of General Atomics which builds the Predator, and its successor the Reaper, and also founder of Frontier Systems, a company that developed unmanned helicopters with variable-speed rotors, which he sold to Boeing, now leads Karem Aircraft, which is working on a tilt-rotor transport aircraft, using the “optimum speed” technology developed by Frontier Systems.

Mr. Karem will be among those featured in a PBS Nova production, Rise of the Drones, to be aired Wednesday, January 23rd, beginning at 9:00 PM U.S. Eastern Time (UTC-5).
