On Wednesday August 8th, 2012 I will be appearing at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America Conference. My panel, Getting in Front of the Issue: A Discussion on Unmanned Systems and Privacy will feature a discussion about the increasing use of unmanned aircraft by public safety officials, federal government agencies and commercial entities. We will address questions regarding the legality of UAS data collection and the implications of UAS operations on privacy protection.
