All quotes about Drones

Chuck Sharp

You can really only see those designs from high in the air, by drone or airplane. We're more interested in what people go through on the ground.feedback

Rodrigo Duterte

I will tell you now, straight, that there will be no peace in Mindanao for the longest time.feedback

Stephen Creamer - International Civil Aviation Organization

They (drone makers) are worried that Europe might create one set of standards, the United States might do a second and China might do a third. And they've got to build a drone differently in these different environments.feedback

Stephen Creamer - International Civil Aviation Organization

You've got to have some commonality so that you're not carrying five receivers in your police car.feedback

Parimal Kopardekar - Nasa

I think it's smart that ICAO is trying to harmonize it. If you have a drone that you build in one country you should be able to use it in another country and vice versa.feedback

Mike Rogers

Space has become so critical to the way we fight and win wars, it can no longer be subordinate.feedback

Mike Rogers

The Air Force is about as fast a herd of turtles as far as space is concerned. What Russia and China are doing is startling.feedback

Heather Wilson - Air Force

The benefit we're seeing now is competition. There are some very exciting things happening in commercial space that bring the opportunity for assured access to space at a very competitive price.feedback

Michael Huerta

All of us are in a learning process. I'm not going to speculate on that," but "that is a conversation we're having with our law-enforcement partners.feedback

Michael Huerta

We all know that there are bad actors out there who want to use [drones] for nefarious purposes.feedback

Ian Tansey

Integration of different software and hardware products across platforms is key.feedback

Ian Tansey

[Drones] are going to revolutionize a lot of businesses globally across various industries.feedback

Kevin On - DJI

We've been trying to make it easy so more people could use it.feedback

Moeed Yusuf

Taking away assistance...a drone strike here or there, all of these are coercive and won't change behavior on Pakistan's part, but can still get Pakistan to react in a way, such as closing supply lines or increasing American costs in Afghanistan. Such tools can be counterproductive.feedback

Bart Massey

There are tens of thousands of jobs available for drone operators. I feel technology is also one of the things, one of the literacies, [students] need to be exposed to.feedback

Ian McConnaughey

Despite repeated radio calls to establish communications and remain clear, the QOM-1's controlling station was unresponsive and the (drone) did not use any aircraft navigation lights while it made several passes in close proximity to Nimitz and its escort ships during active flight operations, coming within 1,000 feet of US aircraft.feedback

Ian McConnaughey

While the use of UAVs has become more prevalent in the region, these two occurrences are the only UAV-related unsafe and unprofessional interactions that we are tracking. The reality is that even one unsafe or unprofessional interaction would be a cause for concern. This type of behavior is not in accordance with international maritime customs, norms and laws. Each instance creates an unnecessary risk of escalation.feedback

Ian McConnaughey

The failure of the Iranian UAV to utilize standard, internationally-mandated navigation lights during a nighttime approach of a U.S. aircraft carrier engaged in flight operations created a dangerous situation with the potential for collision, and is not in keeping with international maritime customs and laws.feedback

Brian Claypool

There was nothing in this jailhouse phone call that indicates that Dalia Dippolito had any intent or plan to carry out to escape this jail.feedback

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

We're investing in more areas now. We're making investments in the drone market, and we're having success there, and we're making significantly more investments in software. .... While we are spending more than in our pre-IPO years, we're also getting a lot more done for the customer.feedback

Charles Tavner

This is a major milestone as we showcase the significant benefits of our long-range offshore drone service, and ultimately demonstrate the future of offshore inspection and logistics. FlyLogix is uniquely placed to deliver this service. We have clearly shown the track record, the technology and industry knowledge to complete these operations and are excited about rolling this service out more widely.feedback

Geir Haoy - Kongsberg Seatex

When the bridge goes on land, it will be something like flying a drone from a command center. It will be GPS navigation and lots of high-tech cameras to see what's going around the ship.feedback

Dick Costolo - Twitter

What he's been able to publicly announce he's going to try to do, and then goes ahead and does it in a number of fields all at once, it's just extraordinary. I just don't think there is ... [anyone] else out there like it. Listen, when you say it, it sounds a little bit crazy – he's landing a rocket on a drone ship at sea. I mean this is something he's done. So you just ... have to shake your head at what he's been able to accomplish.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

We're not going to meet some timeline if we are not ready. But we're pretty close.feedback

Jamie Dimon - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

It's almost an embarrassment being American. It's almost an embarrassment being an American citizen travelling around the world ... listening to the stupid s*** we have to deal with in this country. At one point we all have to get our act together or we won't do what we're supposed to do for the average Americans. [The media] should be writing a lot more about that the stuff that is holding back and hurting average Americans. Who really cares about fixed-income trading in the last two weeks of June, I mean seriously.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

The significance is you kill the leader of one of these groups and it sets them back for a day, a week, a month. It's obviously a victory on our side in terms of setting them back. It's the right direction.feedback

Derrick Xiong - EHang

In China it seems like the collaboration between the academics side with the start-up side is still not as strong as (in) the U.S. China is definitely going to be one of the most important players in the AI field because China does have the biggest database. China has the biggest consumer base as well. While the U.S. is still having its own advantage of academic research. U.S. is very strong in theoretical studies as well. Well, I believe China and U.S. will be both leading the way in the AI field.feedback

Derrick Xiong - EHang

The U.S. is a more mature market, people spend more time working on fundamental technologies, while in China it's more about application level or working on business models that you can see results within maybe five to six years. I think this is the area that China still needs to catch up.feedback

Tom Fuller - YouGov

Looking at our survey results, it's easy to speculate that very low awareness of passenger carrying drones contributes to fears about their safety. But as non-passenger drones become ubiquitous, being used for filming weddings and concerts, delivering packages, racing and other activities, consumer awareness will increase and familiarity will ease the fears of many.feedback

Tom Fuller - YouGov

There is good reason to think that market penetration of passenger carrying drones will be quicker than our survey might lead you to believe. Similar levels of caution and even fear were expressed for previous technologies, notably airplanes, but daredevils and postal delivery made them seem commonplace in a very short period. A number of well-respected manufacturers are planning to build passenger drones.feedback

Kevin Tamez - MPM

You have nothing to do but sit on the edge of your bunk and figure out ways to get past the system. You can't get complacent with them. These guys aren't stupid.feedback

Kevin Tamez - MPM

They have to land for you to get the contraband off of them. They can't drop it like a bomb.feedback

Bryan Stirling

Now they're going to fly over the nets, so what do we do next? Is it going to be more money, more tax dollars? Call your representatives. Call the FCC. It's an open comment period. Let them know that this needs to be fixed. It needs to be fixed now. It needs to be fixed yesterday.feedback

Bryan Stirling

We 100 percent know a cell phone was used or multiple cell phones were used while he was incarcerated, and we believe a drone was used to fly in the tools that allowed him to escape. No longer are people stopped from continuing their criminal ways from behind bars. They are physically incarcerated, but they are no longer virtually incarcerated.feedback

Jason Frishman

You can invest between $100 and $100,000 right now from the comfort of your couch. You can go to Netcapital.com, you can invest in anything from a drone company to a Pokémon-Go-style mobile game company to a family fun park to a virtual reality company. They're non-accredited investors, for the first time ever.feedback

Paul Hatfield

We also see a lot of drone bombs. We had hundreds of them since we started in Raqqa.feedback

Steve Landells

Measures should be put in place that will allow the police to identify and locate anyone who flies a drone in an irresponsible way.feedback

Martin Luis Gomez - Facebook

By design, Aquila does nothing fast: It climbs slowly, descends even slower, and when flying upwind moves only at 10-15 mph over the ground. We designed Aquila this way because it is meant to stay in the same area for long periods of time to supply internet access. Aquila is solar-powered and extremely power-efficient – running on the power equivalent of three blow dryers. And what is particularly gratifying is that the improvements we implemented based on Aquila's performance during its first test flight made a significant difference in this flight.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

In this test, it flew for one hour and 46 minutes over the desert and landed smoothly near Yuma, Arizona. We successfully gathered a lot of data to help us optimize Aquila's efficiency. No one has ever built an unmanned airplane that will fly for months at a time, so we need to tune every detail to get this right.feedback

Craig Jenkins

We were flying across the Channel, then did about four or five circles. Then, slowly, we travelled farther east. When I could see the HS1 train line, I knew we were in trouble. Shortly after that we got told Gatwick had closed and we needed to land in Stansted.feedback

Craig Jenkins

I thought it was going to turn into Lord of the Flies at one point. The general consensus was to go back to Gatwick but one person was adamant they were getting off. The captain stepped in and made an executive decision, thank God.feedback

David Ellison

It is very much a world we live in today where it's drone technology, and fifth-generation fighters are really what the United States Navy is calling the last man-made fighter that we're actually going to produce, so it's really [about] exploring the 'end of an era' of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today.feedback

Jappie Mhango

The launch of the testing corridor is particularly important to support transportation and data collection where land transport infrastructure is either not feasible or difficult during emergencies.feedback

Johannes Wedenig

Drone technology has many potential applications ... One that we have already tested in Malawi is to transport infant blood samples to laboratories for HIV testing.feedback

Fernando Pinto - TAP Portugal

Due to the irresponsible behaviour of some – and I'm speaking in a European and global context – (drones) are being used very badly, in a very dangerous way, and that worries us.feedback

Steve Burns

We're hoping to get certified as a light sport aircraft - 20 hours of training, and if you can fly a drone, you can fly this. We built it to be super easy to fly, that was the main design element we went for. It's very much like a drone. It's complete fly-by-wire, it has a joystick for directional control. A forward push of this angles the vehicle, all automatically the computer does everything, keeps you balanced and drives you forward. Left-right, and then for up and down there's a button for changing your altitude.feedback

Elad Aharonson

A lot of data is collected on the desk of the officer, and he doesn't know what to do with it.feedback

Balazs Kerulo

It should be ready within two or three years as a product. I think that the technology is ready. It's evolving, it's booming, we have better and better battery technologies. We have all means of a computer- controlled drone technology that is needed for this ... I still believe that even me or you will be flying these kinds of things within ten or maybe 15 years.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We want them to create new companies and lots of jobs. We're going to give you the competitive advantage that you need.feedback

Balazs Kerulo

I'm quite positive that within 15 or 20 years, the big dream of mankind will come true. I mean if you've seen Star Wars, if you've seen any other Science Fiction since the 40s it's in the collective vision of mankind.feedback

Jeff Davis - Navy

I can tell you it was an Iranian-made drone. Public statements aside, we have not seen the Russians do any actions that cause us concern. We continue to operate, making some adjustments for prudent measures.feedback

Jeff Davis - Navy

To be clear, we prefer to keep this channel of communication open. We want to de-escalate, not escalate. We remain available on our end. I'll leave it to the Russians to state their level of participation.feedback

Nat Shaver

We have more than five cameras on the boat filming every time we go sailing, which we can sync with the data. If we have footage from outside the boat from a drone, we can also sync that. And when you can put data with the video it gives you a much better overview of what's happening in the boat. It makes the analysis that much more powerful.feedback

Bailey White

I had never seen anyone be able to shoot the angles he was shooting. While the boat was up in the air foiling, he was getting so low flying this drone that he was actually below the boat, so you got a sense for exactly how the boat was performing and how the sailors were doing.feedback

Ramazan Sharif

We are not the initiator of any conflict and war but we do not tolerate creation of insecurity in our country.feedback

Richard Liu

Today we have over 70,000 delivery men working on the street. It's high cost, you know. If you can use robotics to deliver a parcel, the cost will be very low. That kind of logistic fee will drop down at least 70 percent, so on our balance sheet, I think it will be profitable.feedback

Richard Liu

In the past, it's very hard to do business in the countryside, because the logistic fee is very high, the cost is too high.feedback

Richard Liu

In each village, we have a delivery man; he lives there and works there, and he's got a backyard. He's like a small distributor of us in that village. So we can use our drone to fly to the delivery man's backyard directly. And point-to-point is fixed.feedback

Richard Liu

We still need a lot of humans to use the camera, to observe or control the drone, the delivery robotics, and the people-free warehouse. We still need a lot of workers to maintain or fix the whole system. But if you look at the whole country, or the whole society, I think some people will lose their jobs. I think it will bring a lot of revolution.feedback

Tyler Mason

Some industries (i.e. real estate) will post on the site that they're looking for pilots, and pilots can then accept the jobs from the Dronebase website.feedback

Jordan Rising

Many of the industrial applications of [drones] are being adopted by survey and engineering firms. Most of these companies are hiring pilots who can likely expect to make between $50,000 and $70,000, depending on their expertise and the equipment they are operating.feedback

Rupert Sweeting - Knight Frank

Drone photographs, particularly of large country houses, have become very popular in recent years. Aerial shots are a great way to provide prospective buyers with an overview of the whole property, showcasing the size and beauty of the land that goes with the property, as well as of the surrounding countryside. The shots also give an all-important perspective on any additional accommodation or outbuildings and where they are located.feedback

Donald J. Trump

China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented act.feedback

Colonel Ryan Dillon - US Army

Unfortunately, there have been (these) incidents that have taken our focus away from fighting ISIS.feedback

Colonel Ryan Dillon - US Army

This clearly showed a threat even if it were a warning shot; it was something that showed a hostile intent, a hostile action and posed a threat to our forces because this drone still had munitions that were still on it.feedback

Chen Zhang

So today, as you have seen in China, e-commerce is huge but in remote villages, most people are not benefitting from e-commerce … so to solve that problem we will develop our drone program.feedback

Chen Zhang

The battery cost today is still very high… it is a major issue we need to address.feedback

Guy van Rentergem

The owner now has a nice bathymetric analysis. It was like a black hole, and there was no data from the center of the lake.feedback

Chris Bonnet - Federal Aviation Administration

We're doing it completely legal, we have very, very short deliveries from the drone where we have a safe takeoff location and the landing area is a Drone Dispatch team member who's receiving the box of doughnuts.feedback

Michael Hancock

This is exciting stuff and I think as we get ready for not only drones in the air, and get ready for autonomous vehicles, this is our future this is how we're going to become a more efficient 21st century nation, society quite frankly.feedback

Ju Yong Chol

It is the United States' hostile policy and its aggressive joint military drills, nuclear threats and military build-up around the Korean peninsula that really aggravates the situation on the Korean peninsula and the region and which compels the DPRK to also up its nuclear deterrence.feedback

Wang Yi

We urge North Korea to not do anything to again violate U.N. Security Council resolutions. At the same time, we hope all parties can maintain restraint, not be influenced by every single incident, ...persist in carrying out Security Council resolutions on North Korea and persevere with the resolution of the issue through peaceful means, dialogue and consultation.feedback

Ben Ainslie

I compare it to the World Series of Cricket in the 1970s. They really revolutionised how cricket was filmed and watched. That same revolution is taking place in the America's Cup. The boats are smaller and faster but we've got more cameras on board, drone technology and all the audio. So it will be an incredible spectacle and one of the closest America's Cup in history. It has all the ingredients to be the best-ever.feedback

Ron Fehlen

The landing of OTV-4 [the name of this mission] marks another success for the X-37B program and the nation. This mission once again set an on-orbit endurance record and marks the vehicle's first landing in the state of Florida. We are incredibly pleased with the performance of the space vehicle and are excited about the data gathered to support the scientific and space communities.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

We're here today to say that we don't agree with these drones. We don't agree with this obscenity that's going on before our very eyes here. That's why just as much as we want to get rid of landmines, small arms, nuclear weapons, we want to get rid of drones as well.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

Because they are the ultimate in sanitised warfare where you immunise yourself against the reality of it, knowing full well that a family with barely enough to eat are going to be killed by a multi-million pound weapon at the press of a button by someone in an air conditioned office in the mid-west of the USA or right here in Lincolnshire.feedback

Alex Chatham

It's quiet, there's nothing about it that's menacing, there's nothing about it that's jarring or will put you at unease. We're trying to create a market that doesn't exist now.feedback

Michael Chambliss

Drones are a new vernacular within the language of cinematography. Movies in the 1950s had their look, and part of their look was due to the idea that a camera was a 150-pound thing. And all of a sudden when cameras got lighter, we could start doing road movies, all of a sudden concepts like 'Easy Rider' became possible. The way we move a camera influences how we tell our stories.feedback

Doug Gurr

We are constantly inventing on behalf of our customers, and our development centres in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London play a major role in Amazon's global innovation story. By the end of this year, we will have more than 1,500 innovation-related roles here in Britain, working on everything from machine learning and drone technology to streaming video technology and Amazon Web Services.feedback

Greg Janzen

He's ill-informed. And same with Mr. [Ahmed] Hussen, who's the immigration minister. I don't think they realize the impact of their decisions right now. They're trying to cover this story up. I'll even f-----g put a drone up there. The local RCMP want to give it and they can't. If they do it, they lose their jobs. So, I'm going to take things into my own hands.feedback

Dominic Grieve

This failure to provide what we consider to be relevant documents is profoundly disappointing. The Government should be more transparent about these matters and permit proper scrutiny of them. (The) investigation of Khan's activities led to the disruption of the attacks he planned, thereby avoiding what could have been very significant loss of life.feedback

Martin Short - Natural Resources Defense Council

Do you realize If a drone hit this crowd, Trump eliminates all his problems? That's the kind of power we have.feedback

Michael Fallon

In the most extreme circumstances we have made it very clear that you can't rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike.feedback

Michael Fallon

Mr Corbyn wants to be prime minister of this country in six weeks time yesterday we had the staggering performance of someone who wants to be prime minister who wouldn't necessarily authorize strikes again terrorists, he is against the nuclear deterrent, would stop building the submarines, we have already started building he wouldn't control our borders and earlier he has even questioned our Nato deployment. You can t rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike.feedback

Andrew Gwynne

The Labour party is very clear. We're committed to a credible nuclear capability at the minimum end of the scale, delivered through continuous at-sea deterrent. That is Labour party policy and it will be in the manifesto. We are committed to renewing the Trident system. We would not be in a position where the first choice would be to press that red button. We believe in multilateralism. We believe in sitting down and negotiating away our nuclear weapons systems to create a nuclear weapon free world. We also need to make sure no other countries develop or get nuclear weapons as well.feedback

Michael Fallon

Jeremy Corbyn made it absolutely clear that he is still against the deterrent, and he was then corrected by his own party. So we had chaos from Labour last night, which doubles the security risk to this country when you have somebody standing to be prime minister who his own party is then having to correct. And you are left completely unsure as to what would actually happen to our nuclear deterrent. This is somebody who would certainly put the security of our country at risk. And if you want stronger and stable leadership then it has to be Theresa May and the Conservatives.feedback

Peter Stockel

We are particularly keen to reach out and encourage organisations that might not have worked with the defence and security sector before, such as those developing commercial driverless vehicles, drone delivery services and robotic agriculture, to get involved with the challenge and help us rapidly advance the way we deliver tactical military logistics.feedback

Rukmini Callimachi

In all of the areas that I have visited, ISIS dug a complicated network of tunnels. And so what they're able to do is they retreat inside the tunnels. And then from there, they're able to send a drone up into the air. So they're completely protected and unseen from our surveillance. And yet, they're able to see. So what they suspect is happening is that the drone is sent out to collect information to identify the location of where the enemy troops are. And then from there, they're able to pinpoint that place and then start aiming mortars at it as well as aiming munitions from the drone itself.feedback

Mohammad Shahzadah

The earth felt like a boat in a storm. I thought my house was being bombed. Last year a drone strike targeted a house next to mine, but this time it felt like the heavens were falling. The children and women were very scared.feedback

Andrew Birkin

I have a lot of toys around the house, but it's more of a way of connecting with the kids. [The toys] went away when my older ones grew up, but now I get them out to spend time with them and fiddle about myself. I'm fortunate – my five-year-old loves World War One and rockets and planes, so that's interesting for me as well. I even bought a drone, to take photos and show him.feedback

Luigi Freda

It was a difficult mission because the churches were in very bad condition, so much so the firefighters could not get in to make a detailed analysis. First, a robot came in to monitor the back of the church and then another robot entered at the front. We then managed to get a drone and we filmed the entire interior, which resulted in the 3D model.feedback

Rebecca Morelle

We had come to see a lava flow that had appeared overnight. A giant stream of rock, glowing red, was oozing down the slopes … Dozens of tourists had also been brought by Etna's guides to see the spectacle.feedback

David H Dunn

Previously you had a hedge, you had a wall and you could do whatever you wanted in your garden without people disturbing you. That has changed because of drones. It's true for celebrities. It's true for everyone. Anecdotally I've heard that burglars using drones is a big issue for police forces. People are using them to fly behind properties to see if the lights are on, to see what sort of French windows they have or whether there are windows open.feedback

Steve Barry

As awareness of what drones are and what they can do continues to grow, police forces have seen increases in concerns and reports by the public. We have to balance the growth of this technology by ensuring that the public are aware of the strong regulatory framework and detailed user guidance that is available relating to drone use.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The first reflight of an orbital class booster did its mission perfectly, dropped off the second stage, came back and landed on the drone ship, right on the bullseye. It's an amazing day for space as a whole, for the space industry. It means you can fly and refly an orbital class booster, which is the most expensive part of the rocket. It's been 15 years to get to this point. It's taken us a long time. It's really a great day, not just for SpaceX but for the space industry as a whole and proving something can be done when many people said it was impossible.feedback

Laura Chapman

With new technology comes new responsibility. If the animal's looking at the drone, if they're looking at you, they're being harassed. We just want people to know how big an impact they can have.feedback

Louise Ellman

Civilian drones have the potential to fundamentally change how many industries – including the transport sector – work. The inquiry will consider the implications of this technology. We will also be asking whether enough is being done to ensure drone technology can reach its potential without compromising the safety of other aircraft and the public in general.feedback

Jenell Black

Our project has been making large efforts to be at the lead of exciting new research methods conducted with drones, and I was lucky enough to remember to bring one out with me so you could witness this exciting event of a leatherback returning to the sea after completing her nesting process. What is so very exciting about using the drone is that we are able to not only see how the leatherback moves on land, but how graceful she is once she's in the water clear of the shore.feedback

Jenell Black

Once in a rare while our team out conducting a morning survey happens upon a sea turtle that is up late enough she may still be on the beach as the sun rises. Since light disrupts nesting sea turtles, photographs may not be taken of nesting sea turtles at night, but sea turtles that are up under the bright morning light are free game to take photos of respectfully and without the use of flash.feedback

David Rosenberg - AeroFarms

My recommendation is to stop wasting your time trying to explain something that is as simple as an asset class that is priced for perfection at some points realizes that the world is not a perfect place. A president can certainly fly a drone whenever and wherever he wants, but he is never bigger than the business cycle and over time has little influence over investment returns as well.feedback

Steve Barry

I would not be at all surprised if other forces follow in due course - the question is not whether they will, it's when. There may be an opportunity at some point in the future to rationalise what we need our cops to do because we find drones can do it more effectively and more cost-efficiently…an example of that would be looking for missing people. That opportunity has not yet manifested…there will be a point where that question gets asked. I think it's a brave senior officer who will make that step that is going to cut cops because they have got drones.feedback

Justin Bronk

It is clearly enormous overkill. It certainly exposes in very stark terms the challenge which militarizes face in attempting to deal with the adaptation of cheap and readily available civilian technology with extremely expensive, high-end hardware designed for state-on-state warfare.feedback

David Perkins

In fact, if I'm the enemy, I'm thinking, Hey, I'm just gonna get on eBay and buy as many of these $300 quadcopters as I can and expend all the Patriot missiles out there.feedback

David Perkins

That quadcopter that cost 200 bucks from Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot. Now, that worked, they got it, OK, and we love Patriot missiles. I'm not sure that's a good economic exchange ratio. In fact, if I'm the enemy, I'm thinking, 'Hey, I'm just gonna get on eBay and buy as many of these quadcopters as I can and expend all the Patriot missiles out there'.feedback

David Perkins

The problem is on the kinetic-exchange ratio, the Patriot won. That quadcopter that cost $200 from Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot. So on the kinetic-exchange ratio they won. So what we've done is look at it say this is a commander's problem. This is not an air-defense problem. This is a commander's problem. We defined it from the very beginning, and now we're looking at, hey, there's ways to get after this with electronic warfare, with cyber. There's all kinds of different ways that we could get to this.feedback

David Perkins

We had a very close ally of ours that was dealing with an adversary that was using a small Quadcopter [Unmanned Aircraft System] and they shot it down with a Patriot missile. Now that worked, they got it! We love Patriot missiles, they are great! The problem is, on the kinetic-exchange ratio, the Patriot won. That Quadcopter that cost $200 (£160) from Amazon did not stand a chance against a Patriot. On the economic exchange-ratio, I'm not sure that's [so] good.feedback

David Perkins

It certainly exposes in very stark terms the challenge which militaries face in attempting to deal with the adaptation of cheap and readily available civilian technology with extremely expensive, high-end hardware designed for state-on-state warfare.feedback

Matthew Olsen

I think these rules proved effective operationally – I never saw an instance where we missed an opportunity to carry out a strike because of too much lawyering.feedback

Matthew Olsen

I am concerned that loosening standards will harm our ability over time to carry out these operations, because it will affect our standing with the countries in which we need to operate.feedback

Richard Vigne

I don't think the world of conservation has the money to spend that would be needed to make an anti-poaching drone effective.feedback

Luke Hartig

How much are we supporting our partners if we are only saying that we will take a strike if there's a continuing and imminent threat to U.S. persons?feedback

Barack Obama

We have to create an architecture for this because [of] the potential for abuse.feedback

Guillermo Barros Schelotto

I'm not looking to hide anything with closed training sessions, I do it so we can have a little more intimacy and when the press is there you have to be more careful with your football language. All the same the drone was going around the Bombonera and we were training in Casa Amarilla, I don't think it was spying on us!feedback

Simona Jankowski - Goldman Sachs

GoPro faces significant challenges following saturation of its core action cameras market, product rollout issues in the holiday season, and a disappointing entry into the drone market.feedback

Rashid Abdi

The concern in Washington has been mounting for some time now. The Trump administration is simply reiterating what has been policy, with slight variations. U.S. special forces are already on the ground. Drone attacks have been scaled up.feedback

Doug Brimeyer

Anything we can do to afford those animals an edge to help them survive is pretty critical.feedback

Doug Brimeyer

It's a crucial time of year for those animals and they don't need to be burning up additional energy stores unnecessarily.feedback

Chris Colligan

The concern is if it is found on those feedgrounds, it could be exacerbated by the elk concentrated in those areas. It's slowly creeping toward our fed elk populations.feedback

Ben Marcus

This round is all about finding a set of partners to help us globalize.feedback

John Dodero - United Parcel Service

We see this as an exploration into this new technology. We have no idea how all that will play out until we find out how to integrate them into the business.feedback

Junyang Woon - Infinium

We are focused on indoor applications (for) very practical purposes because for outdoor applications, we have to deal with regulations. We have to deal with issues like privacy as well (but) if you fly drones indoors, you do away with all these issues. We are looking into fully replacing the manpower needed to do stocktaking, Let's say warehouse workers leave work, you press a button and the drone will do the stocktaking. When the workers come back in the morning, all the stock would be taken before they actually start work.feedback

Gretchen West

In the drone industry, it seems counter intuitive, but we actually want regulation. And not having regulations is putting a halt to the growth of this industry.feedback

Ren Tuanjie

In order to celebrate the completion of our family tree, we decided to have a get-together and photo session. The oldest was 94, and the youngest was 4 years old.feedback

Gretchen West

There aren't a lot for the drone industry to begin with. And I can't imagine they'd do anything from a manned aviation perspective to jeopardize the safety of the airspace.feedback

Gregory McNeal

If regulations for unmanned aircraft are held up or are stripped away, there's actually no way for drones to access the airspace.feedback

Jon Hagranes

Since the commercial drone rules went into effect last summer, our business has skyrocketed. The quarter after the rules were out was three times bigger than our previous quarter.feedback

Dave Bowen

Measure's business has definitely grown since Part 107 took effect. The number of cell tower drone inspections has at least tripled.feedback

Gregory McNeal

We're investing millions of dollars in this space. And every day that there is a delay is a day that we are farther from being able to really watch our business grow.feedback

Mike Lissone - Eurocontrol

The biggest challenge we're facing is: on the one hand we've a very conservative aviation community, where we take quite long years to make changes because we want to keep everything very safe; and now we've a very innovative industry coming up who doesn't want to wait five to seven years, it wants to implement things now.feedback

Koen Vrints

The moment you take a course you get a lot of information on the airspace. We get plans where we can see visually where locations are, where control zone from an airport is, where helicopter training area is and how we have to look at it on the plan.feedback

Jürgen Verstaen

So, there's a link between our software and the drone that informs him: watch out, the virtual wall is here, you cannot continue.feedback

Jürgen Verstaen

We know we're standing near an airport. And if you look at the system indeed, it tells me on the spot 'you cannot fly here,' because… I don't know yet why. I just click a bit further and it will tell me in detail why I'm not allowed to fly here.feedback

Falah Hammad Hindi

The weapon of choice is the drone. The snipers are highly effective. They are foreign fighters, the most committed.feedback

Keren Elazari

Security decisions you make every day make a difference. A motivated attacker can get past any barrier. It's worse than the flu. It's not about secrets. It's about the technologies that power our way of life. Our future might have our toaster attacking the neighbor's drone, or his car.feedback

Tristan Randall - Autodesk

The only other way to capture data at this level would be with a full size aircraft.feedback

Soon-Jo Chung

Whenever I see bats make sharp turns and perform upside down, perching with such elegant wing movements and deformations, I get mesmerized.feedback

Trip Chowdhry - Global Equities Research

We are at the tail end of the social media boom. Novelty is giving way to fatigue. Fundamental investors should avoid the IPO. Snapchat is a total junk, hyper-inflated. Durability is absent. All the junk IPOs I mentioned had their uniqueness too. Remember Groupon - group buying; Zynga - social gaming; GoPro - action photography and a media company and drone company. These are all instruments of blowing hot air into a company before a collapse.feedback

Nasser Mohammed Nasser

Who do we talk to? America? Where is America? They would kill two or three from al-Qaida on one hand and 10 or 15 civilians on the other hand. Where is this al-Qaida they claim to be killing? ... There are many other incidents like ours due to drones.feedback

Rafi Yoeli - Urban Aeronautics

Just imagine a dirty bomb in a city and a chemical substance or something else and this vehicle can come in robotically, remotely piloted, come in to the street and decontaminate an area.feedback

Tal Inbar

It could revolutionize several aspects of warfare, including the medical evacuation of soldiers on the battlefield.feedback

Kyle Landry - Lux Research

There's a bit of a fear factor here. The high volume of drones, plus regulations that can't quite keep pace, equals a need for personal counter-drone technology.feedback

Priti Patel

The UK is at the forefront of investing in cutting-edge technology to tackle the global challenges of today such as disease pandemics, medical emergencies and disaster responses. This innovative, modern approach ensures we are achieving the best results for the world's poorest people and delivering value for money for British taxpayers.feedback

Aaron L. Connelly

The Chinese have regularly tested new U.S. administrations when it comes to surveillance; it happened in 2001 and 2009. The data gleaned from this surveillance makes it easier for the U.S. navy to detect Chinese submarines and that's been one of Beijing's regular gripes about U.S. sea power in the area.feedback

Aaron L. Connelly

That would have been a very oblique way to make that point as nothing about the drone had anything to do with Taiwan, so I suspect its primarily about surveillance activities. Previous harassment of U.S. navy ships occurred much closer to the Chinese mainland but this incident took place as about 600 kilometers away, and it was even outside the Chinese nine-dash line, which Beijing has used to claim much of the South China Sea.feedback

Hua Chunying

There is a bit of over-reading, or a bit thinking about it too much: 'was it a misjudgement or orders from higher up'? But if you read the answer from the defence ministry spokesman, the facts are really simple and clear.feedback

Peter Cook

This incident was inconsistent with both international law and standards of professionalism for conduct between navies at sea. The US has addressed those facts with the Chinese through the appropriate diplomatic and military channels, and have called on Chinese authorities to comply with their obligations under international law and to refrain from further efforts to impede lawful US activities.feedback

Gregory Poling

For a lot of folks in the Pentagon, this over-stepped that line between legal contestation and a military threat.feedback

Xiong Zhiyong

China wants to send a message to the U.S. side about how serious the consequences can be if sensitive issues in China-U.S. relations are handled unilaterally and indiscreetly. The return of the seized drone shows that China hopes the U.S. will not provoke China on these issues and engage in solving issues through consultation.feedback

Michael Raska

They use the South China Sea as political, economic and informational means to project power and to influence domestic and external perception that the South China Sea is basically Chinese. This puts the U.S. and China into contending trajectories, but neither side has the strategic interest to escalate beyond these low-level incidents.feedback

Justin Higgins

China's seizure of a U.S. unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) operating lawfully and in plain sight of a U.S. Navy vessel was unacceptable. China's action had no basis under international law.feedback

Peter Cook

Registered our objection to China's unlawful seizure of a U.S. unmanned underwater vehicle operating in international waters in the South China Sea.feedback

Peter Cook

Through direct engagement with Chinese authorities, we have secured an understanding that the Chinese will return the U.U.V. to the United States.feedback

Zhang Huang

As soon as an underwater drone enters our waters for close in surveillance, it may be used to collect all sorts of information about submarine routes for our navy, seriously threatening our naval security.feedback

Ni Lexiong

This is a much smaller incident, it won't affect the overall picture of China-U.S. relations.feedback

Yang Yi

If China needs to take it, we'll take it. [The United States] can't block us. It's natural for us to take possession of and research for a bit these types of things that America sends to our doorstep.feedback

Yang Yujun

In order to prevent this device from posing a danger to the safe navigation of passing ships and personnel, the Chinese lifeboat adopted a professional and responsible attitude in investigating and verifying the device.feedback

Mira Rapp-Hooper - Center for a New American Security

This move, if accurately reported, is highly escalatory, and it is hard to see how Beijing will justify it legally.feedback

Jeff Davis - Navy

It is ours, and it is clearly marked as ours and we would like it back. And we would like this not to happen again.feedback

Chris Hackett

I'm sure there will be a lot of drones given as Christmas gifts, and we'll start to see more drone-related claims.feedback

Justin Herndon - Allstate Insurance

Generally speaking, we evaluate every claim on its own merit. We continue to follow the evolution of drones and its impact on our customers' policies.feedback

Christie Alderman

There are a lot of unfortunate things that can go wrong.feedback

Khaled Gabry

With the collapse of Saddam's regime and the intervention of the United States, Iraq was left with no government. So we decided to call the tribal people to protect the relics. We sent people to set up check points and patrol the area.feedback

Khaled Gabry

We don't know exactly how many relics the extremists have taken away, but we know they took some portable and easy-to-smuggle cultural artefacts.feedback

Hong Yoo-jung

The position of the thumb determines the speed and direction of the drone.feedback

Chad Colby

You literally push a couple of buttons, the drone flies the field like a lawnmower, collects the data, and processes the data. It's a very valuable tool.feedback

Don Meij

We invested in this partnership, and technology, because we believe drone delivery will be an essential component of our pizza deliveries, so even more customers can receive the freshest, hottest pizza we can offer. I am proud of this partnership that has not only delivered this momentous event, but is leading the world for this important technology.feedback

Don Meij

This will actually create jobs. As we expand, we will look to hire additional team members whose roles will be focused on drone order loading and fleet management.feedback

Genevieve Corbin

Two crew members performed an evasive manoeuvre to avoid the unidentified object.feedback

Brad Cicero

The pilots' initial assessment was that it looked like a balloon. After debriefing, there is potential that the object was a drone.feedback

Adam Lisberg - DJI

Four years ago, it was enough to take something out of a box, you push a button and it flies. The smart money is now in drone services.feedback

Rory O'Driscoll - Scale Venture Partners

Consumers buy drones, and it's a disposable item. They play with it, and then they are done.feedback

Erinn Murphy

This is not only a surprise to us, but another ding on management's credibility. Not only were we surprised by the modest level of initial units sold, but we believe it is a possibility that Karma will not be available for the key holiday season.feedback

Paul Griffiths

If people start to think you can't fly into Dubai because you may get diverted because they can't control the drone activity in the area, then that has a very serious reputational impact.feedback

Paul Griffiths

If people are caught infringing the airspace and threatening the safety of civil aviation, then clearly the penalties have to reflect that.feedback

Paul Griffiths

We have got to find a way of controlling it immediately. We just cannot have any more closures caused by infringements of drones in controlled airspace.feedback

Mark R. Cheadle - US Army

There are US service members working with the Tunisian security forces for counter terrorism and they are sharing intelligence from various sources, to include unarmed aerial platforms.feedback

Jeanne Holm

We want more people who are drone operators, interested in robotics and understand data analytics and visualization. We are in a hiring mode and recruiting heavily.feedback

Peter Hutton

We think the space has gotten interesting ... and we like the idea of having storylines around individuals that we can build up as heroes. We see this as a journey toward a younger demographic.feedback

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

You know, it's kind of self-explanatory. I think we've all, probably everybody in here, probably at some point or another had a drone-related problem.feedback

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

I was like, Uh oh. You could've given me a lot of guesses and I wouldn't have come up with this one.feedback

Josh Tomlin

This isn't the first obstacle we've had to overcome. So face it head-on. And we've talked about it since day one of spring training. We're never going to back down from a challenge. This is another challenge for us to accept and move forward. The next guy that comes up has to step up and do their part and hopefully it's just a little bump in the road and we can continue to be successful.feedback

Josh Tomlin

It really doesn't affect me at all. It will be on my fifth day, I'll be on normal rest. When I found out I was going tomorrow, I stuck to the game plan that I was going to do Monday and go out there and compete and win a game.feedback

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

J.T. is probably the easiest guy in the world. He handles everything. He's about as tough mentally as you're going to find. He was excited.feedback

Wendy Taylor

Mosquitoes are pretty small and they are pretty light so you can pack a lot of punch in these small devices. That drone can then go back and reload.feedback

John Dorrian

They can just buy them as anybody else would. Some of those are available on Amazon.feedback

Wim Zwijnenburg

You already see things happening in Ukraine, gangs in Mexico are using drones, and in Ireland, gangs there are using surveillance. Add a small amount of explosives to a small drone, and even the psychological factor is pretty significant.feedback

Andrew Uerkwitz - Oppenheimer Holdings

When it comes to package delivery, we're kind of negative on that. Aside from just weight concerns and automation, [there are] privacy concerns.feedback

Andrew Uerkwitz - Oppenheimer Holdings

For drones to get...$60 billion added to the economy, you really need self-flying drones and so forth.feedback

Andreas Jahnke - Lufthansa Consulting

The market potential for the commercial use of drones in the wind energy sector is growing rapidly.feedback

Holly Kasun

As we were going through the paces of developing this technology, we were using Lego bricks to rapid prototype, to test and see if we could get things to fly, [whether it was] different configurations or how much weight.feedback

Holly Kasun

You can start going down that creative problem-solving path, which is the point of it, the experiential side of project-based learning.feedback

Holly Kasun

The crash is the beginning of the experience, really, because the first few times you can say, what happened, why did I crash?feedback

Holly Kasun

When you start building different configurations and designs, you can say, My weight was off. My balance was off.feedback

Holly Kasun

We realized this was a handy tool and a really fun way to be able to experiment with drones.feedback

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

Karma is simply the best solution out there for stabilization in the air or handheld or mounted to your favorite gear. And GoPro is the only company in the world that is making this solution possible, so I think we're in a really good position.feedback

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

It's the most exciting product we've ever made. It's certainly the most enabling product in terms of helping people capture incredible professional-quality footage of their lives and share stories like they're used to seeing on the big screen at the movies.feedback

Tero Heinonen - Sharper Shape

It is commercially proven. This is something that opens such a huge market that will simply help any American company using drones.feedback

Lia Riech - PrecisionHawk

First and foremost, safety is the top priority. We also want to continue pushing the boundaries. Obviously it's important for us to cover the acreage that is representative of our clients.feedback

Derrick Maple

As tension builds in East Asia, so does advancements in UAV programmes. Strong growth is expected in India as well, due to its significant border requirements.feedback

Derrick Maple

Integration into non-segregated airspace is becoming critically important globally as operations expand, with rules and regulations needed to address this demand – for military and civil markets alike.feedback

Mark Blanks

It's real customers that are working and need lunch and want it delivered by drone.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

As I'm here in Africa, I'm deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX's launch failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent. Fortunately, we have developed other technologies like Aquila [Facebook's internet drone] that will connect people as well. We remain committed to our mission of connecting everyone, and we will keep working until everyone has the opportunities this satellite would have provided.feedback

Al Feinberg - Nasa

Fortunately, we have developed other technologies like Aquila [Facebook's internet drone] that will connect people as well.feedback

Takashi Kawakami

The security environment surrounding Japan is severe, due to neighboring North Korea and China. I personally think [the increase] is not enough.feedback

Steve Burns

We launch from atop the truck, and efficiencies are not as good as if you could just launch from 30 miles way, but they are staggering.feedback

Steve Burns

Like a lot of new technologies you kind of go for the low hanging fruit. And the long distance out in rural areas and some suburban, that's the longest cost per package because it's not very efficient for the driver or the truck. So you start there, then you move inland, if you can imagine a drone jumping up on top of a building, maybe, and there is a central landing spot where everybody picks up their packages…it could get that precise.feedback

Keller Rinaudo - Zipline

It is a vastly easier problem – flying than driving. If we had regulatory permission, we would be delivering to your house right now.feedback

Dave Meredith

This is an incredibly concerning incident; the close proximity of the drone to the passenger aircraft shows a complete disregard by the operator for public safety, and we are appealing to the public for information to help us track down this reckless drone operator.feedback

Stephen Prior

All of the battery-powered multi-rotors suffer from poor endurance, so 20-30 minutes is tops. We can fly, essentially, forever provided we've got fuel in the tank in the fuel generator in the ground station.feedback

Stephen Prior

It's basically a virtual mast, so you could imagine surveillance operations, rescue missions at sea or on land, surveillance of large complexes like nuclear power stations.feedback

Stephen Prior

There are expensive systems out there; very very expensive military systems, so a quarter of a million pounds plus. And we sit somewhere in between that. Our price point is around about 75,000 pounds (GBP) for a complete system solution.feedback

Ned Price

The president has emphasized that the U.S. Government should be as transparent as possible with the American people about our counter-terrorism operations, the manner in which they are conducted, and their results. Our counter-terrorism actions are effective and legal, and their legitimacy is best demonstrated by making public more information about these actions as well as setting clear standards for other nations to follow.feedback

Paul Misener - Amazon.com

The U.K. is a leader in enabling drone innovation – we've been investing in Prime Air research and development here for quite some time.feedback

Gary Herbert - Brandywine Global Investment Management

Now we're way past, north of $10 million because we had to ground aircraft all because of a drone.feedback

Paul Pillar

We're still faced with the basic question: Is the number of bad guys who are taken out of commission by drone strikes greater or less than the number of people who are inspired to turn to violent acts.feedback

Courtney Robinson

The purpose of taking the pills is to show they are safe because in the North (Northern Ireland) there is a lot of scaremongering around the issue.feedback

Kim Hoelmer

A drone would be a lot more precise and could apply the pesticide where it was needed, and presumably nowhere else. So that would be minimizing the impact.feedback

Chaudhry Nisar Khan

You could not see a spot of paint ... that's how bad it was hit. How was a passport lying just a few yards away? So first we have to establish that, whether he was actually using it.feedback

John Kerry

We have had longstanding conversations with Pakistan and Afghanistan about this objective with respect to Mullah Mansour, and both countries' leaders were notified of the air strike. Mullah Mansour, as I said a moment ago, has been actively involved in planning attacks in Kabul, across Afghanistan, presenting a threat to Afghan civilians and to the coalition forces that are there.feedback

John Kerry

This action sends a clear message to the world that we will continue to stand with our Afghan partners as they look to build a more stable, united, secure and prosperous Afghanistan. The United States has long maintained that an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned reconciliation process is the shortest way to achieve peace and peace is what we want. Mansour was a threat to that effort and to bringing an end to the violence.feedback

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

The biggest surprise is that they delayed Karma. They said they wanted to work on the features... they did not explain the delay and why they did not notice it three months ago.feedback

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

Consumer demand for GoPro remains solid. Unit sell-thru was close to first quarter 2015 levels, a quarter which benefited from the launch of HERO4. Revenue exceeded our guide and, importantly, unit sell-thru rates were approximately 50% higher than sell-in which drove global inventory levels down. And while we had to make the difficult decision to delay our drone, Karma, the upside is that Karma's launch should now benefit from the holidays.feedback

Hiroshi Mikitani

There are over 3,000 golf courses in the country and I think that's a big market. By sharpening the technology and operations here, we want to develop it for everyday use such as shopping as well.feedback

Abu Firas

May God accept him as a martyr, he was a commanding figure. This was engineered by the Crusader axis.feedback

Matt Sweeney

Conducting the first drone delivery in an urban setting is a major achievement, taking us closer to the day that drones make regular deliveries to your front doorstep. The Nevada delivery demonstrates that advanced drone systems allow aerial vehicles to safely navigate around buildings and deliver packages with precision within a populated area.feedback

Matthew Sweeney

A drone has successfully delivered a package to a residential location in a small Nevada town. This marks as the first fully autonomous urban drone delivery in the US.feedback

Matthew Sweeney

The six-rotor drone flew about a half-mile along a pre-programmed delivery route on March 10 and lowered the package outside a vacant residence in an uninhabited area of Hawthorne, southeast of Reno. The route was established using GPS. A pilot and visual observers were on standby during the flight but weren't needed.feedback

Judith Sherman

There are many delays in the continuum of getting HIV positive children on treatment, they need to come in early for testing, ideally before 2 months, between 6 and 8 weeks, their tests, the dry bloodspots need to get from the health facilities to one of the 8 laboratories nationwide.feedback

Dianne Feinstein

This is one more incident that could have brought down an airliner, and it's completely unacceptable. A near-miss of 200 feet should serve as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by reckless drone use.feedback

Gavin Hood

I hope that what 'Eye in the Sky' does as a film is remind us that complicated issues require genuine dialogue – a deep dive into the issues at stake and not simplistic positional ideas. And if we do that, then we're back to having a democracy in a way. Democracy is about conversation, not winner-takes-all.feedback

David Cameron

The money will go towards efforts to move people from the camps in Calais to facilities elsewhere in France.feedback

Osama bin Laden

There are new brothers, perhaps some would be suitable in the future, but not now.feedback

Rafi Yoeli - Urban Aeronautics

Imagine a dirty bomb in a city, with a lot of radiation, or chemical material, or something that is evolving inside a city centre with no humans being able to get into that area, and no helicopter being able, especially if its an unmanned helicopter, being able to go into that confined area without hitting something on the way.feedback

Rafi Yoeli - Urban Aeronautics

It can operate inside villages and cities, land on the sidewalk, or in rough terrain, on a path, in a clearing in a forest, and it doesn't have overhead rotor and tail rotors which are characteristic of helicopters and which cause so many accidents. It does all of that automatically, it can fly very low close to terrain, it has various sensors to enable it to do this mission without any supervision.feedback

Wu Haining

We need to have pilots along with licenses, because safety may be the biggest concern from the operation connected with drones. Although we have insurance, we however need tight regulations pertaining to studying and training avoiding any mishaps.feedback

Yariv Bash

Let's say you forgot your cell phone back home. A friend of yours can just connect the cell phone to the drone and it can send it to you.feedback

Derrick Xiong - EHang

So the people sitting in there is not going to be a pilot. You know, you don't need to get a license in the future. You're just a passenger. You are going in there (the drone) and sit in there and enjoy the flight.feedback

Derrick Xiong - EHang

The cruising speed, the standard speed is going to be 63 miles per hour (101km) and the cruising time will be 23 minutes. So we are talking about 20 plus miles (32km) at this time.feedback

Mark Ven

When I clap twice the light turns on, as it detects that I'm clapping. When I write an English 'R' in the air the red light turns on, and when I write an English 'Y' the yellow light turns on. Lastly, when I clap twice the light turns off. During this process we are communicating and interacting on the Human Computer Interface by using the internet of things, and the wearable device.feedback

Wang Si-kai

We used to play with drones using controllers, but now we could control them with our hands. It's something I'd love to buy after seeing it here.feedback

Roland Freudenstein

No, we're not. I think there is an elaborate procedure by the US Department of Justice, to take the American example, to authorise drone strikes. It goes through several stages. There have to be decisions by civilians, by judges, that this particular strike is the only means available.feedback

Andrew Stroehlein - Human Rights Watch

I think that's a very dangerous road to go down. I mean, international law has served us well in many instances and creates clear rules that everyone understands. We're looking at this from a very western perspective. What if Russia flies a drone over Warsaw, or let's say London. Let's say they fly a drone over London and kill someone they say is an enemy. What would we say? We would be outraged. The West would be rightfully, absolutely outraged, and that's what is going on in many cases.feedback

Alain De Neve

Drone attacks have been carried out in a very permissive environment recently.feedback

Andrew Stroehlein - Human Rights Watch

The problem comes with the legal advice that governments are taking about drones. And that's not made public. For example in the UK's drone strike in Syria on August 21, killing two British citizens alleged to be working with the so-called Islamic State – the legal advice which David Cameron said he had received, he will not make public. Nor will he make public the evidence on the basis of which these strikes were made, so basically he's made himself judge, jury and executioner.feedback

Alain De Neve

Drone strikes don't prevent you having troops on the ground. Sometimes in order to target, you have to reply on troops on the ground.feedback

Andrew Stroehlein - Human Rights Watch

I go back again to my London argument. SO President Putin says well you have to trust me that we have evidence and I have taken legal advice on my drone strike. I will not show you the legal advice or the evidence. Will you trust President Putin on this?feedback

David Cameron

We were exercising the UK's inherent right to self-defence. There was clear evidence of the individuals in question planning and directing armed attacks against the UK. These were part of a series of actual and foiled attempts to attack the UK and our allies.feedback

David Cameron

Britain will play its part alongside our other European partners. But because we're not part, this is important, of the EU's borderless Schengen agreement or its relocation initiative, Britain is able to decide its own approach.feedback

Brian Grant

Our new flagship model, the Tornado H9-20, is going to be our prosumer (= professional & consumer) model, this is going to fly for over 30 minutes, payload up to five pounds, range of over a mile if you really need it… it's very simple, just get-out-of-the box, charge the batteries and deploy.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

In the US, there are half a million drones expected to be purchased in this year's holiday season. But fans may not have a long-term fun with their Christmas presents. The US Federal Aviation Administration has just announced that there will be tough regulations to ensure the safety of the airspace soon.feedback

Bob Blakley - Fairfax

In Fairfax County we have two helicopters and they are very expensive to operate. Unmanned drones would allow us to deploy aerial overview very quickly and that could probably resolve a lot of situations in a safer manner and in a more timely manner.
