The United States has embarked on Worldwide and Domestic Drone Programs. Unmanned Drones are being used in foreign countries and in the United States. They carry surveillance cameras, recording equipment, bombs, and other weapon systems.
In recent years the U.S. government has decided to allow the use drones within the borders of the United States. The following government reports, newspaper articles, and other information is provided for your information regarding the expansion and use of unmanned drones worldwide and in the United States.
Many unmanned aerial vehicles now under production vary in size from those as small as your fingertip to as large as full-scale airplanes capable of carrying missiles and bombs. And model radio control small airplanes, cars, and helicopters can be purchased at your local toy stores or hobby shops. The elementary technology has been in existence for more than fifty years. It has only been in more recent times that more sophisticated technology, computers, cameras, listening devices, fuels, lighter and stronger contstruction materials, and other inventions have contributed to new uses for unmanned vehicles (drones).
Unmanned Drones are plagued by crashes, malfunctions, use of defective parts from foreign countries like China, accidents (including hitting other aircraft), loss of control, lost drones, and other problems. Military drones are being tested over land areas in the United States while carrying weapons systems, missiles, bombs, and while using experimental and dangerous fuels, like hydrogen, or powered by nuclear power as is proposed by the U.S. government. The potential for accidents has already been clearly demonstrated in news and government reports
