The US gov't is seeking RFPs from the private sector to help them integrate drones into US airspace.


Is this more Big Brother in the making?

Quoting bjorn14 (Thread starter):

I don't think so. It's the next logical step in the advancement of UAVs.

It's not just military type surveillance that they could be used for. Just think how useful drone surveillance could be post disaster. Or use in weather research or firefighting. Just think of a day when we could use UAV tankers and spotting aircraft to fight fires and send real time sensor data to firefighters on the ground without putting any crewmen in danger.

Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

If used commercially it will be the beginning of the end of the manned helicopter...

Big Brother can take on many forms. The Feds are the least of my worries. It's all the local departments who are rubbing their hands together. Cameras have been going up on every corner here, ostensibly for "traffic control" (on residential streets) but the cams are monitored by police.

It's too late.

New article today: estimated drone count 15,000+, main market local police departments.

Congress to consider formally restricting invasion of privacy by police drones.


Most people don't see as far ahead as I do. They don't see where this is going. I design this stuff for a living (on the data side). This drone thing is not good. Imagine not being able to speed anywhere, at any time. Always having your location known to police by subpoena and worse, for pre-crime (imminent crime) behavior. They could pull you over if you have spent several hours in a bar area. Police would be called negligent if they do not use this to "eliminate crime," which in the process will eliminate all privacy. Watch and see if I am right.

By the way, I want to say something. This is an aviation related post. This is not a non-av topic.
