    Hmmm. Let me see.

    The country has workers (OK not as many as it used to), and army and now drones? Sounds like a colony.? Question is who is the Queen?

    We have to ask David Ickes that question.

    You certainly work hard keeping your threads going.

    Oh look! There's one over there from 2011 that needs some of your dung to fertilise it.

    So the government forces are using drones to watch, the delivery companies are using drones to deliver customers goods. Are the "criminals" use drones to kidnap the drones, via electronic manipulation, nets or laser beams yet.

    When is an armed guard ship going to be compulsory to ensure insurance cover is maintained. Will we soon have robot drones seeking revenge on the biological units?

    Sophisticated drones that can move (and I'm sure fire) like helicopters in law enforcement.

    If used properly, a good thing.

    That's....the question.


    Look for Military Drones to Begin Replacing Police Helicopters by 2025

    An MQ-9B from General Atomics on the tarmac at Grey Butte, California. Taken on August 19, 2017.



    DRONES
    GENERAL ATOMICS

    General Atomics is working hard to put a close cousin of its Reaper anti-terrorism drone in the hands of local law enforcement.

    By 2025, enormous military-style drones – close relatives of the sort made famous by counterterrorism strikes in Afghanistan and Iraq – will be visible 2,000 feet above U.S. cities, streaming high-resolution video to police departments below. That is the bet that multiple defense contractors are placing, anyway, as they race to build unmanned aircraft that can pass evolving airworthiness certifications and replace police helicopters. And if that bet pays off, it will radically transform the way cities, citizens, and law enforcement interact.

    Don't helicopter take off and land vertically and hence do not require a runway? Can't they lower a rope or harness to save/evacuate people?

    Talk of rescue, saw a brilliant clip of a remote controlled horseshoe-shaped lifebuoy, just chuck it into the water and direct as required; for sea rescue it could be dropped from a drone.

    So, they do not need any pilots - who acquired their licence just recently - boarded with or w/o some strange passports?
