In the wake of the Boston bombings, the president of the largest Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) organization wasted no time in pushing for drones - as some predicted those in the industry would.
Michael Toscano, president of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, said UASs could have provided critical situational awareness for first responders and law enforcement in Boston.

To tell you the honest truth I was extremely surprised that there weren't drones flying above the Boston Marathon as there seemed to be some sort of training exercise going on and I assumed drones would be a part of that. I kept expecting to see "drone eye view" footage on the news reports. Who is to say that they weren't and were circling up high enough not to be noticed? As much as we may hate it I think drones are here to stay!
