Drones and the drone zone, threats and opportunities


© CLGdotTV 2018

Councils and other local public service providers need to control the airspace above their citizen's heads.

Amit Samani of Dedrone in conversation with Joe Tibbetts. The same drone that delivers a defibrillator to a heart attack victim in the high-street can deliver a bomb big enough to destroy a building. Controlling the airpspace through which the drones fly will fall to local authorities. Low level air space, above our heads and below the cloud base, can deliver life saving and life enhancing services and life threatening dangers. One scenario suggests that councils may be able to make enough money from licensing their airspace to pay for the security of the citizens they protect.
