From PlaneSpottingWorld, for aviation fans everywhere

The Standard E-1 was an early American Army fighter aircraft, tested in 1917.

Built by the Standard Aircraft Corporation, the E-1 was an open-cockpit three-place tractor biplane, powered by an 80 hp (60 kW) Le Rhone or 100 hp (75 kW) Gnome or rotary engine. It proved unsuitable as a fighter, but about one hundred were bought as an advanced trainer; about half were completed as M-Defenses, being fitted fitted as gunnery trainers. After World War One, three were modified as RPVs.
