Abstract

While UAVs have been around since World War One, they have been restricted to odd military uses until recently. Now UAVs, or drones, are becoming a more significant part of the modern world. This paper seeks to analyze the technical, domestic, international, and humanitarian ramifications of widespread UAV use as well as offer solutions to the problems inherent with this technology. Without these solutions, UAV misuse will hurt the potential benefits that UAVs offer and drive the public against them.
