New Nonfiction Titles: Drones

Unmanned Ariel Vehicles (UAVs), or drones as they are commonly known, are aircraft that are operated by remote control. They can carry a range of sophisticated equipment such as transmitters, sensors, cameras, and weapons. The U.S. military has used drones and governments are interested in using drones for law enforcement and border patrols. 

Drones have potential for commercial and personal use, although this does raise complex issues regarding privacy and congested air space over major cities. In remote areas, drones are also an option for protecting endangered animals.

Drones is part of the Global Issues series, published by Weigl Publishers, August 2014.
