February 11, 2013 – “Rise of the Drones” – Time Magazine
Time Magazine (February 11, 2013 issue) features a lengthy article on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) commonly referred to as drones. Drones are used extensively by the military to conduct attacks and/or surveillance. Drones are now coming to civilian skies and are increasing in usage. Farmers use them to detect predators, realtors use them to take aerial photos of homes, police use them for surveillance or pursuit of criminals. Drones are also used by Federal law enforcement officials such as the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Border Patrol. The Obama Administration has requested that the FAA develop a plan for integrating drones into U.S. airspace by 2015. Given this scenario I suspect that many of these drones will generate UFO reports. The variety, shapes and sizes of drones continues to increase.
