Drone Makers Capitalize On Boston Terror

04.22.13 02:05 PM

The president of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International told an American publication that drones would have been perfect for post-attack reconnaissance following last Monday’s bomb attacks at the Boston Marathon.

“UAS [Unmanned Aircraft Systems] could be an important tool in the tool kit for first responders,” Michael Toscano told U.S. News and World Report. “Whether it is in response to a natural disaster or a tragedy like we saw in Boston, UAS can be quickly deployed to provide first responders with critical situational awareness in areas too dangerous or difficult for manned aircraft to reach.”

Constitutionalists, who’ve been protesting President Barack Obama’s drone policy, estimate there could be tens of thousands of drones in domestic skies by 2020. Numbers from the Federal Aviation Administration seem to back that prediction.
