The unmanned aircraft that most people associate with hunting terrorists and striking targets in Pakistan are on the brink of evolving into a big domestic industry. It seems to be not a question of whether drones will appear in the skies above the United states but how soon.
Congress has ordered the federal aviation administration to quickly select six domestic sites to test the safety of drones, which can vary in size from remote-controlled planes as big as a jetliners to camera-toting hoverers called nano hummingbirds that weigh 19 grams.
The drone go-head , signed in february 2012 by president Obama in F.A.A reauthorization law, envisions a 5billion plus industry of camera drones being used for all sorts of purposes from real estate advertising to crop dusting to environmental monitoring and police work.
Responding to growing concern as the public discovers drones are on the horizon, the agency recently and quite sensibly added the issue of citizens privacy to its agenda. setting regulations under the fourth amendment guarantee against unlawful search is of the utmost importance. But since the F.A.A primary mission is safety , many believe that congress should take the matter in hand by writing privacy safeguards for the booming drone industry.
The anticipated market includes tents of thousands of police , fire and other government agencies able to afford drones lighter than traditional aircraft and costing as little as 300$ . Several surveillance drones are already used by border patrol, and the F.A.A has allowed a few police departments to experiment narrowly, as in ceiling of 400 feet for surveillance flights over the ever glades by miami police department. Privacy worries have prompted the A.C.L.U’s national office to warn that while drones could have many benefits like search and rescue work and tracking dangerous criminal situations, the laws lack of privacy mandates will inevitably invite “pervasive surveillance” of the public.
