Unmanned Aircraft Systems: Addressing Critical Infrastructure Security Challenges   [open pdf - 128KB]

From the Document: "In addition to recreational use, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)--also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or drones--are used across our Nation to support firefighting and search and rescue operations, to monitor and assess critical infrastructure, to provide disaster relief by transporting emergency medical supplies to remote locations, and to aid efforts to secure our borders. However, UAS can also be used for malicious schemes by terrorists, criminal organizations (including transnational organizations), and lone actors with specific objectives."
