Drones. Death from Above

There is a new technology hovering the skies, varying from, and assortment of functionalities, doing survey and air strikes. The technology called Drones, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), used by the US military, and other nations in the world. This new technology has raised concerns to the public; the main uses for the Drones now are surveillance and air strikes. The UAVs deployed all over the world, with the capacity to strike any location at any time. Drones are mainly used to take down target locations before troops hit the ground. The military believe that using this technology is efficient, easy to maneuver, and it can provide real-time, around the clock footage from the distance ("Drones"). With

With top of the art facial recognition software, the drones will be able to identify a face from several thousand feet in the air, providing tactical information to the local enforcement agencies. The information may facilitate on the apprehension of wanted terrorists. From his first days as commander in chief, the drone has been President Barack Obama’s weapon of choice, used by the military and the CIA to hunt down and kill the people his administration has deemed through secretive processes, without indictment or trial, worthy of execution. The key to making technology truly revolutionary is not merely its new capabilities but its questions. Revolutionary technologies force us to ask new questions about what is possible and consider things that were not conceivable a generation before. However, they also force us to relook at what is proper. They raise issues of right and wrong that we did not have to wrestle with before. NASA is currently developing a system to manage Drone Traffic in the skies ("NASA Developing System To Manage Drone Traffic”). This year, drones have gotten in the way of aircraft fighting wildfires. They have crashed into stadiums. In addition, the problem may just grow bigger as companies like Amazon imagine ways to put drones to work for deliveries. Ultimately, it will be up to the Federal Aviation Administration to set drone traffic policy. The FAA starts testing the first phase of NASA 's system next year ("NASA"). Assuming that the system in development will assist with Drone traffic in the US, mostly by private companies and civilians, we can expect many changes in the near
