Fairchild SD-5 Osprey Drone

In 1958, Fairchild received a U.S. Army contract to develop a jet-powered surveillance drone for the AN/USD-5 drone surveillance system. The drone itself, named Osprey, was referred to either as SD-5 or also as AN/USD-5, although the latter was more properly the designation of the whole system. The Osprey first flew in May 1960.
