It’s happening in the United States more and more. A technology once confined to foreign battlefields is becoming increasingly common in domestic airspace.
The more than 50 institutions that received approvals to operate remotely piloted aircraft are more varied than many outsiders and privacy experts previously knew. They include not only agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security but also smaller ones such as the police departments in North Little Rock, Ark., and Ogden, Utah, as well the University of North Dakota and Nicholls State University in Louisiana.
What do you think about this trend?
– Does it worry you … or reassure you?
– Should drones be limited or welcomed like other new technology?
– Does your right to privacy extend to the airspace above your home or business?
– Would you accept any drone as long as it is unarmed?
