The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) established 6 national drone test sites where the unmanned planes could fly through civilian air space.
President Obama signed the FAA Modernization and Reform Act in February of this year, demanding that the FAA “integrate operation of drones” into National Airspace by 2015.

Although only 4 were planned, six came into being thanks to lobbying from certain US Senators.




Over 63 locations were authorized launch sites after the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) obtained the same data through a Freedom of Information Act request.

The EFF put together a map to show where those areas were.

These locations, near 20 across several states, were granted drone operation rights by the FAA. Those benefiting from this action are the US military, Border and Customs Patrol, NASA and the FBI


Here is a map of all the locations that are authorized drone launch sites within the US


This is just the beginning. Drones will be flying around surveilling you and gathering private information, all illegaly and against the constitution. Here is a video about it:



From the video:


  • In 2011, 313 drone certificates were issued to police and Gov't
  • Customs & Border patrol already use 9 drones to patrol



From the original article:

The CAA statement read in part: “So, while you are putting burgers on the grill … while your kids are playing outside … while you walk your dog, or go window-shopping, or sit outside at a café, having lunch … the eyes of the U.S. government will be upon you. Small drones will begin flying in June, but all types of UAV’s will be allowed into the skies by September 30, 2015-courtesy of our privacy-killing President, Barack Obama.”


30,000 drones will be flying overhead soon, spying on you and your community:

And here are some the attachments that police and federal agents can include on their drones to violate your privacy.. they can hack your phone and your wifi,read your biometrics, see through your walls and YOUR CLOTHES!!

8 Creepy Spy Technologies That Can Be Hitched to Your Neighborhood Drones
and if that doesn't scare you, they are considering adding 'non-lethal' weapons to the drones, to control..errrr.. i mean protect you:
Police Departments Plan to Equip Drones with Rubber Bullets and Tear Gas

If you are an 'occupier' or a sympathizer, you could be 'droned' as you are now labelled as a domestic terrorist:
FBI labeling "Occupy Movement" as "Domestic Terrorist". This puts you in the same league as these other terror groups

Hell, if you are male, and within the 'strike zone', you are also a terrorist!!:
Obama re-defined "militant" to mean "all military-age males in a strike zone",

You may need this Drone Field Guide to identify the drones flying above your head

You can also report the tail numbers of unmanned drones to this website, Drone spotters and through twitter and see where in the world drones have been spotted/crashed/etc

This is an excerpt from an interview from May 27th, with The Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta:
Regarding the recent civilian deaths due to recent drone strikes in Yemen, that have 'emboldened Al Qaeda':


TAPPER:Is there not a serious risk that this approach to counterterrorism, because of its imprecision, because of its civilian casualties, is creating more enemy than it is killing?

PANETTA: First and foremost, I think this is one of the most precise weapons that we have in our arsenal. Number two, what is our responsibility here? Our responsibility is to defend and protect the United States of America.

And using the operations that we have, using the systems that we have, using the weapons that we have, is absolutely essential to our ability to defend Americans. That’s what counts, and that’s what we’re doing

Source

What scares me the most about that last statement, was that he deflected the question and payed NO attention to the issue of civilian deaths, instead he tried to justify it by saying they are only 'protecting america'. So in otherwords, it doesn't matter what the civilian deaths are, as long as you kill some terrorists! Collateral damage? Who cares about collateral damage?!
They will use these drones as a way to surveil american citizens, use them as counter-terror units within america and there will be invasion of privacy, abuse and collateral damage. It's crazy to think how much freedom Americans have lost for security. The liberties that are given up and the personal violations that are allowed are completely against what the USA was founded on! They are getting lots of practice in the ME and now all that knowledge is arriving soon, in a city/town/area just like yours, BEWARE!

Thoughts?

Potato cannon + steel ball bearings = dead drone. Or. Long pvc pipe sealed at one end + chlorine and alcohol bomb thrown and stuffed to the bottom + rag full of steel ball bearings packed tight = dead drone.

Its easy people
just practice now so you're a dead eye when their over you're house.

This is the one thing that is really concerning. I like to read about internment camps, FEMA plots, etc. more as interesting gossip. But THIS. Is one of the least talked about huge issues. I'm not scared of being targeted by drones or anything like that. Just being spied on, most people don't understand how advanced these drones are. They can stay in hover for 24 hours cover huge swathes of land, like 1-2 drones (predator style) per county. Also, the cameras on drones aren't that fuzzy bank robbery crap, no, these drones can tell you heads or tails on a dime from 30,000 feet. Not to mention there infrared, thermals, etc. make MW3 and such look like the video games they are.

So picture it. Every single move: night or day, country, suburbs, urban doesn't matter, all of every square inch of the country. Why would they need to intern anybody or round people up like is said on here? They already know everything...

Here is a story i found about the EPA spying on farmers livestock activity!!


EPA Drones Now Spying On Midwest Farmers Livestock Activity

Source

Congress has launched an inquiry into the EPA’s use of drones to monitor the livestock activities of farmers in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.
In the latest escalation of the government’s all out assault on freedom and liberty in America farmers have become the latest target Uncle Sam’s multibillion dollar spy-machine.

The EPA is now using the same drones the military uses to track and assassinate people overseas to spy on the livestock activities of farmers throughout the Section 7 area of the midwest United States which includes Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.


There ya go.. Already spying on farmers and their livestock!

The Dronespotters site reminded me that the British dealt with drones almost 70 years ago when the Nazis were launching V1 Buzzbombs at London. Small wonder we don't hear a peep over there about drone use - just in the US.

Nice research you've done - even a guide to different types though I suspect there are dozens of models available.

They know they have to rush these things in to operation before public backlash turns on them.

Heres another interesting article:


Will Your Future Be Full of Robot Assassins and Spy Aircraft?


Source

It’s now commonly estimated that more than 50 nations have drones, are making plans to develop them, or are at least planning to buy them from those who do produce them. In other words, the future global skies are going to be a busy -- and increasingly dangerous -- place. They will be filled not just with robotic surveillance aircraft, but also with non-U.S. remotely piloted armed assassins which, thanks to the path Washington has blazed, need pay no attention to anyone’s national sovereignty in a search for their version of bad guys to destroy. Iranians, Israelis, Russians, Chinese, Indians, British -- you name it and if they don’t already have something robotic aloft, they undoubtedly will soon enough. And those estimates don’t even include insurgent groups and terrorists, who are undoubtedly giving real thought to how to develop and use the equivalent of suicide drones.


Assasin drones eh?!

I found this interesting tid bit on a local tea party website:


Unmanned aerial vehicle auth. for flight ops. on and in the vicinity of Stennis Int. Airport

Posted by name witheld on May 31, 2012 at 5:19pm
Send Message View Discussions

This is a public airport in Hancock county. In the local paper last wednesday the port and harbor commission asked for bids for consulting services to assist in securing an UNMANNED aerial vehicle auth. This is next to the Stennis space center. After making a few phone calls I have learned that this is being pushed by the fed to have this implemented. A lot of people live in the vicinity of the buffer zone around Stennis myself included. I have had several conversations with friends and neighbors and all feel this is in violation of our 1st and 4th Amendments. This not the middle east,this is America. I would appricate any discussion or thoughts on this matter, either on line or contact me at 228 ***-**** , myself and folks here would appricate any help that could be rendered by calling our ms congressman and senators in getting this shut down.


I use to live south of this airport and most of its traffic is military in nature ( training touch and go's ect... ) It is also interesting to note that BP corexit spraying operations were launched out of this airport.

I would hate to live near the ends of the runway when they start flying drones.... All the rednecks in the area will try to shoot them down

Sorry if I missed it, but what do the different colored markers on the map mean. I see where I'm from NY the marker is blue.
As for obama watching, I've got a one finger salute for him.

As far as the map says, the blue ones are expired permits, although they could be reactivated at anytime. Also, it appears that more and more permits are being given out (see article) around the country. They will have to issue planty of these permits to allow for the 30,000 plus drones that will be flying around soon.

*Also, it should be noted that there is an authorized permiot issued in Alaska as well, I just cut it out of the pic cause it would have made it too big**

I don't get it...Why haven't they been using the drones on the border. Use them on illegals.

I don't have nothing to hide though I do deserve my freedom and privacy and by using these drones I feel my freedom and privacy is lost.

The Customs and Border patrol are already using 9 drones at the moment, to 'track illegals and drug smuggling' or so they say.
Using drones for this makes sense, it is easier to cover a lot of ground, it is safer than sending out manned patrols that could be ambushed,etc. HOWEVER, they still need to have a warrant to go over your house and surveil the area.. just sayin'

Thanks for the very well done post, I will award you one star as well as one flag!

But I must say... Who can blame Obama? He is so bored around the white house, he tried the whole "help the country" thing and that didn't work, so now he will finally get to do something that involves the public.

Hurray...

Brilliant idea, shoot down a large UAV over civilian space .. not like that could be at all dangerous for anyone on the ground .. these things are not as tiny as you might think, one of these crashing into someone's living room could really ruin someone's day.. or end their lives.. imagine if one landed in a playground, or a school.. a daycare

I said it before and I'll say it again. Time to take up nude gardening...Think about it.
- You get a garden to grow food in (if you don't have one already)
- You will get that sexy all over tan. no tan lines yay!
- They think they own your ass, so they might as well get to see it occasionally...hey beats a guy with a glove, right?

Nude yoga is also a good way to get in touch with nature, if you don't have a green thumb.

This might be the straw that breaks the camels back, but there are still some steps to systematic brainwashing. This is what I predict will happen:

1 - Big federal agencies will use drones first
2 - Then big city law enforcement will start using drones
3 - Then it will trickle down to smaller cities
4 - Major criminal event requiring drone interference
5 - Fox news and CNN argue for arming drones to prevent disaster
6 - Obama signs execute order permitting armed drones
7 - Crime happens in which armed drone interferes
8 - ACLU, citizens protest but nothing happens
Fox, CNN, Obama admin, Police defend actions
9 - Suspected terrorist is hiding in big building
10 - 19 hellfire missiles are fired into building to take out suspected terrorist
11 - 278 people are killed as a side effect of collateral damage
12 - ACLU, citizens protest
FOX, CNN, obama, police defend their actions, say it was for your own good
13 - You buy it

....Until it happens to someone you know or love or WAKE THE EFF UP!

really? america being watched & monitored by zionists jews?? of course you are going to provide (credible) proof of this right? because if you don't, you are just a nut case that is able to work a computer.

nude yoga? back in the early 70's, guys used that tactic to get chicks, only worked briefly, because too many fat, dorky guys tried it. scared the (supposedly) gullible chicks away. guys get devious that way, all for a little you know what. and us guys were too stupid to realize that girls knew what they were doing all along.

AWESOME! I fully agree!

They will be used to intervene at somepoint with some 'critical' domestic crime, there will be collateral damage and then it will be justified for use after the precedent is set. Anyone complaining that their daughter or neighboor has been killed in a drone strike will be deemed un-american because 'why wouldn;t you want drones to keep you safe'??
Who cares about a little collateral damage?! America will be safe from threats, and your liberties including the right to privacy will be waved

Great post! Thx!
