An unmanned drone developed by a research team of the People's Liberation Army will soon undergo its first test.

The drone's functions include automatic tracing and surveillance, and key attack technologies will be tested, according to a report by Science and Technology Daily on Dec 27.

China's Air Force displayed eight types of unmanned drones at the ninth China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition held in Zhuhai, Guangdong province, in November. Although progress has been made in recent years, China still lags behind in drone technology compared to some other countries, according to reports.
