FAA delaying selection of cities to host drones over privacy concerns, industry still avoiding the issue
Citing privacy concerns, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has delayed the selection of six cities in the United States which are slated to test unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), better known as drones.
Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has embraced small spy drones and is set to begin new testing programs. A new drone training facility is being built, last year the Pentagon identified 110 sites from which drones can operate, and the military is already sharing information captured by drones inside the United States with law enforcement.
