Civilian Drones To Fill The Skies After Law Shake-Up
by Paul Marks

Law changes mean uncrewed aerial vehicles aren't just for the
military any more - civilian uses are taking off, too

Editorial: "High time to welcome the friendly drones"

The hobbyist was testing the camera on board his small uncrewed
aerial vehicle (UAV), when he spotted it: a creek in Dallas,
Texas, running red with blood.

He'd captured a picture of a stream of animal blood flowing
north away from the Columbia Packing Company's meat-processing
facility. Acting on the visual evidence, investigators monitored
the plant before raiding it last month. The company may now face
criminal charges from local, state and federal authorities for
polluting city waterways with a gory mix of pig's blood and
toxic chemicals.

Such a story may crop up more often as UAVs fall in price and
become simpler to use. What is traditionally thought of as a
military technology is about to change the lives of private
citizens as well as big businesses.
