  9. 9. www.auvsi.orgUAS Economic Potential AUVSI’s 2013 Economic Report: The UAS global market is currently $6.6 billion Over the next 10 years, the UAS global market will double, for a total of $140 billion The economic impact of US airspace integration will total over $13.6 billion in the firstthree years and will grow sustainably for the foreseeable future, cumulating to over$82.1 billion between 2015 and 2025 Every year that airspace integration is delayed will cost the U.S. over $10 billion inlost potential economic impact, which translates to $27 million per day
  10. 10. www.auvsi.orgUAS Industry on the Rise• Nationally:• >70,000 jobs in the first three years following integration• >100,000 jobs after 11 yearsEXAMPLE:• Colorado• First three years following integration:• 1,191 jobs• $232 million in economic impact• In the 11 years following integration:• 1,760 jobs• $1.4 billion in economic impactAUVSI Economic Impact Study of UAS IntegrationAdditional economic benefit will be seen through tax revenueto Colorado, which will total more than $10.8 million in 11years following the integration.
  11. 11. www.auvsi.orgUAS Industry on the RisePrecision agriculture totals approximately 80% of the potential commercialmarket for UAS“Precision application, a practice especially useful for crop farmers andhorticulturists, utilizes effective and efficient spray techniques to moreselectively cover plants and fields. This allows farmers to provide only theneeded pesticide or nutrient to each plant, reducing the total amountsprayed, and thus saving money and reducing environmental impacts.”UAS in agriculture has the potential to be a $3 billion market inthe first three years following integration. Almost $30 billion overnext 10 years.• Drought management• Disease detection• Watering• Spraying pesticides
  12. 12. www.auvsi.orgEmerging Commercial UAV UsesAgriculture UAV use for crop-dusting minimizespossibility of fatalities Manned crop-dusting costs up to $8.00per acre, compared to UAV crop-dusting for just $2.00 per acreNews Media Over $200M spent in media helicoptergasoline every year 2007: two news helicopters collide inPhoenix, Arizona; four passengers killedWildlife Monitoring 2011: 25-year veteran pilot dies in crashwhile conducting wildlife survey Flights can cost upwards of $200,000every year UAVs well equipped to monitor wildlife
  13. 13. www.auvsi.orgUAS Job Potential US airspace integration will createmore than 34,000 manufacturingjobs and more than 70,000 newjobs in the first three years By 2025, total job creation isestimated at 103,000. The manufacturing jobs createdwill be high paying and requiretechnical degrees.

  17. 17. www.auvsi.orgState Legislation in 2013A number of states that have already introduced UAS privacy legislationPushed for by the ACLU (and other privacy groups) and Tea Party Republicans Mirrors Federal legislation – same as the Rep. Scott and Sen. Paul’s“Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act” in CongressArizonaCaliforniaFloridaGeorgiaIdahoIllinoisIndianaMaineMarylandMassachusettsMichiganMinnesotaMissouriMontanaNebraskaNew HampshireNew JerseyNorth DakotaOklahomaTexasOregonPennsylvaniaSouth CarolinaTennesseeTexasVirginiaWashingtonWyoming
  18. 18. www.auvsi.orgUAS Test Sites Establish a program for Six UAS test sites On 14 Feb (the one year anniversary of the FAA bill) theFAA released it’s Request for Proposals 50 Applicants from 37 Different States Each applicant must file seven (7) documents ondifferent deadlines, which will be scored, outlining:• Safety Plan• Experience• Risk Mitigation• Existing ground infrastructure• Airspace design• Economic impact assessment• Privacy plan The FAA is expected to pick the winners byDecember 31, 2013 The FAA will lower scores for states that havepassed restrictive UAS legislation
  19. 19. www.auvsi.orgAUVSI’s Position on UAS PrivacyAll stakeholders can work together to advance UAS technology, while protectingAmericans’ safety, as well as their rights. AUVSI supports:• Transparency Measures• Register unmanned aircraft and pilots with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)• Prohibiting Weaponization• The FAA already prohibits the deployment of weapons on civil aircraft• Data Retention Policies• Governing the collection, use, storage, sharing, and deletion of data• Policies should be available for public review and comment• Policies should outline strict accountability• AUVSI supports the International Association of Chiefs of Police model guidelines• Accountability• The Fourth Amendment already protects against unreasonable searches• People should be prosecuted for violating privacy laws• Technology Neutral Laws• Any new laws or regulations should focus on whether the government can collectand use data, not how it is collected

  27. 27. www.auvsi.orgAUVSI Code of Conduct In July 2012, AUVSI released the industry’s first ever “Code of Conduct”which emphasizes Safety Professionalism Respect The Code of Conduct explicitly supports individual privacy “We will respect the privacy of individuals.” “We will respect the concerns of the public as they relate to unmanned aircraftoperations.” “We will support improving public awareness and education of the operation ofUAS.”“I think its really important that theyre payingattention to privacy. Thats to their credit.”- Chris Calabrese, American Civil Liberties Union, 7/2/12
  28. 28. www.auvsi.orgReining in the rumor about EPA ‘drones’EPA spy drones overshoot the factsThe hubbub over nonexistent drones spying on U.S. cattle farmersprovides a look at something hard to capture in U.S. politics: thevibrant, almost viral, life cycle of a falsehood6/16/12
  29. 29. www.auvsi.orgPrivacy Guidelines for Law Enforcement AUVSI publicly applauded law enforcement’s push for privacy The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) approvedmodel guidelines for UAS operations IACP guidelines adopted by: The Airborne Law Enforcement Association The FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association FBI National Academy Associates Grand Forks (ND) Sheriff’s Department9/7/12Police chiefs urge limits on use of dronesWashington, DC - The nations largest consortium of police officials is calling for the limited useof unmanned drones in local law enforcement operations…
  30. 30. www.auvsi.orgPrivacy Guidelines for Law Enforcement“The IACP is to be applauded foraddressing this issue, and for issuingrecommendations that are quite strong…”- Jay Stanley, ACLU Senior Policy Analyst, 8/17/12
  31. 31. www.auvsi.orgAdvancing Technology, ProtectingPrivacyExperts agree: Legal framework already in place a good start to protectingAmericans’ privacy…Flurry of drone bills showsCongress has much to learn“It is quite reasonable for Americans to beconcerned how a new technology will impacttheir personal privacy. It has been a concernsince the founding of this country. Fortunately,there is already precedent, through theConstitution’s Fourth Amendment and caselaw, by which users of this new technologymust abide.”- Tim Adelman, legal expert on the use ofunmanned aircraft systems by lawenforcement agencies, 9/20/12Will "Drones" Outflank the FourthAmendment?“In a word, no. The Fourth Amendment…has served uswell across over two centuries of technology advances, andthere is no reason to expect that it will suddenly lose itsprotective power when domestic use of unmanned aircraftbecomes common.”- John Villasenor, UCLA Professor and BrookingsInstitute Non-Resident Fellow, 9/20/12
