Daily Mail:

ZHUHAI, GUANGDONG - NOVEMBER 01: A child poses for a photo next to a concept model of a Chinese unmanned combat aerial vehicle, nicknamed 'Anjian' or DarkSword', at Airshow China 2006 on November 1, 2006 in Zhuhai, south China's Guangdong province. The world's major aircraft manufacturers gather in Zhuhai for China's biggest air show, hoping to lure customers in the industry's fastest-growing market.

Experts have claimed that China's drone, called Dark Sword, is under secret development.
There is a video at the above link along with photos of the Brit designed drone.  While a supersonic drone can get over target quickly it would probably require programming of the on board cameras to capture images that are something more than just a blur.

Their more likely use is as a weapon delivery system like the US Navy's X-47B. which is designed to operate off a carrier and has a range much greater than a manned aircraft.
