All quotes about Drones

Greg McConnell

On a weekly, almost daily basis, pilots are filing reports on drone sightings. From my perspective, this was bound to happen. People think they're toys, but they're not toys.feedback

Marc Garneau

This should not have happened. That drone should not have been there. Anyone who violates the regulations could be subject to fines of up to $25,000 and/or prison.feedback

Carmi Levy - CTV

Right now it relies on citizens seeing them in the sky and reporting them.feedback

Greg McConnell

There are a lot of drones flying, and there are a lot of people flying drones thinking they're toys.feedback

Daniel Berlant

Over the years, we have seen this problem become a trend. When drones are flying in the same airspace we're trying to use firefighting aircraft, like helicopters and air tankers, for the safety of our pilots we've got to pull those aircraft out of the sky and land them. The potential for a fire to grow larger and do more damage during the time we can't use firefighting aircraft while that drone is in that area exists. That's why it's critical that we educate and ensure that the public is not flying their drones over our aircraft or over fires.feedback

Ian Gregor - Federal Aviation Administration

We received two reports of incidents in which people flew drones in fire areas. We will look into both.feedback

Ahmed Soliman

There are large parts of the country lacking in opportunities and livelihoods, and the Shabab have been able to take advantage of that. The solution for the Shabab isn't to drone-strike it away.feedback

Marc Garneau

This is the first time a drone has hit a commercial aircraft in Canada and I am extremely relieved that the aircraft only sustained minor damage and was able to land safely. Transport Canada is monitoring the situation and is in contact with its transportation partners including Skyjet, the Jean Lesage International Airport and NAV CANADA. My department is in contact with the Service de police de la Ville de Québec and we will cooperate with the Transportation Safety Board should they decide to investigate.feedback

Douglas Thron

I was filming the aftermath of what had happened from the fires the following morning … and I see someone waving at the drone from the truck. My whole purpose of filming was trying to show the devastation because this wasn't a simple, typical fire. This was one that literally looks like a war zone that bombed random sections of miles of miles of the town. It looks like nothing I've ever seen before. Hopefully [the video] will motivate people to help out, volunteer, donate and help all these people who are now homeless.feedback

Michael Fallon

If you are a British national in Iraq or Syria and if you have chosen to fight for Daesh - an illegal organisation that is preparing and inspiring terror attacks on our streets - then you have made yourself a legitimate target. You run the risk every hour of every day of being on the wrong end of an RAF or a United States missile. Protecting this country is the first duty of a Prime Minister. Corbyn's continued refusal to back drone strikes on terrorists who are actively plotting murder on our streets shows he is simply not fit to lead and keep us safe.feedback

Alex Pachikov

Old school systems frankly get ignored by police because there have been so many false alarms.feedback

Imran Khan

Drone attacks lead to collateral damage. If (they) were such a successful strategy, they would be winning the war.feedback

Michael Fallon

That is why we need to examine how to provide medallic recognition for those making a vital contribution to Operation Shader outside the battlespace, from Reaper pilots taking life and death decisions to those who ensure our planes can strike Daesh targets.feedback

Michael Fallon

It is only right that those who have performed above and beyond in this fight against the evil of our time get the recognition they deserve. This medal will do just that. Our troops have made huge contributions to the fight against Daesh (ISIS), helping end its tyranny in large parts of Iraq and Syria. They have conducted over 1,500 strikes against Daesh terrorist targets and helped train nearly 60,000 Iraqi security forces. The campaign is not over but for those that have served we rightly honour the critical role they have played in helping keep us safe.feedback

Michael Fallon

It is only right that those who've performed above and beyond in this fight against the evil of our time get the recognition they deserve. This medal will do just that. Our troops have made huge contributions to the fight against Daesh, helping end its tyranny in large parts of Iraq and Syria.feedback

Johnny Stringer

That particular example for us very much brought it home because civilians had been herded in, forced literally at gunpoint, to go and watch this going on in their hundreds.feedback

Michael Fallon

The changing character of warfare provides new challenges - not just about how we fight but also how we recognise and support those who serve. As fighting has evolved we have adapted, ensuring our troops have cutting-edge equipment including unmanned systems operated from outside the battle space. Our recognition of service, the risks taken, and the long-term effects must therefore adapt too. Our troops have made huge contributions to the fight against Daesh, helping end its tyranny in large parts of Iraq and Syria.feedback

Zeke Johnson - Amnesty International

The last thing the U.S. should be doing right now is expanding a global, secret killing program. By its own admission, the U.S. government's use of drones has meant the deaths of civilians and there has been insufficient accountability.feedback

Bill Roggio

It's impossible to know with Yemen, it's impossible to know with Iraq and Syria, [how many CIA strikes have occurred].feedback

Baseer Khan Wazir

Two missiles were dropped on the home of maulvi Mohib and three people have been killed.feedback

Elizabeth Turtle

Ten years ago, they were kind of rare things that only enthusiasts experimented with. Now everyone can have a drone.feedback

Chuck Sharp

You can really only see those designs from high in the air, by drone or airplane. We're more interested in what people go through on the ground.feedback

Rodrigo Duterte

I will tell you now, straight, that there will be no peace in Mindanao for the longest time.feedback

Stephen Creamer - International Civil Aviation Organization

They (drone makers) are worried that Europe might create one set of standards, the United States might do a second and China might do a third. And they've got to build a drone differently in these different environments.feedback

Stephen Creamer - International Civil Aviation Organization

You've got to have some commonality so that you're not carrying five receivers in your police car.feedback

Parimal Kopardekar - Nasa

I think it's smart that ICAO is trying to harmonize it. If you have a drone that you build in one country you should be able to use it in another country and vice versa.feedback

Mike Rogers

Space has become so critical to the way we fight and win wars, it can no longer be subordinate.feedback

Mike Rogers

The Air Force is about as fast a herd of turtles as far as space is concerned. What Russia and China are doing is startling.feedback

Heather Wilson - Air Force

The benefit we're seeing now is competition. There are some very exciting things happening in commercial space that bring the opportunity for assured access to space at a very competitive price.feedback

Michael Huerta

All of us are in a learning process. I'm not going to speculate on that," but "that is a conversation we're having with our law-enforcement partners.feedback

Michael Huerta

We all know that there are bad actors out there who want to use [drones] for nefarious purposes.feedback

Ian Tansey

Integration of different software and hardware products across platforms is key.feedback

Ian Tansey

[Drones] are going to revolutionize a lot of businesses globally across various industries.feedback

Kevin On - DJI

We've been trying to make it easy so more people could use it.feedback

Moeed Yusuf

Taking away assistance...a drone strike here or there, all of these are coercive and won't change behavior on Pakistan's part, but can still get Pakistan to react in a way, such as closing supply lines or increasing American costs in Afghanistan. Such tools can be counterproductive.feedback

Bart Massey

There are tens of thousands of jobs available for drone operators. I feel technology is also one of the things, one of the literacies, [students] need to be exposed to.feedback

Ian McConnaughey

Despite repeated radio calls to establish communications and remain clear, the QOM-1's controlling station was unresponsive and the (drone) did not use any aircraft navigation lights while it made several passes in close proximity to Nimitz and its escort ships during active flight operations, coming within 1,000 feet of US aircraft.feedback

Ian McConnaughey

While the use of UAVs has become more prevalent in the region, these two occurrences are the only UAV-related unsafe and unprofessional interactions that we are tracking. The reality is that even one unsafe or unprofessional interaction would be a cause for concern. This type of behavior is not in accordance with international maritime customs, norms and laws. Each instance creates an unnecessary risk of escalation.feedback

Ian McConnaughey

The failure of the Iranian UAV to utilize standard, internationally-mandated navigation lights during a nighttime approach of a U.S. aircraft carrier engaged in flight operations created a dangerous situation with the potential for collision, and is not in keeping with international maritime customs and laws.feedback

Brian Claypool

There was nothing in this jailhouse phone call that indicates that Dalia Dippolito had any intent or plan to carry out to escape this jail.feedback

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

We're investing in more areas now. We're making investments in the drone market, and we're having success there, and we're making significantly more investments in software. .... While we are spending more than in our pre-IPO years, we're also getting a lot more done for the customer.feedback

Charles Tavner

This is a major milestone as we showcase the significant benefits of our long-range offshore drone service, and ultimately demonstrate the future of offshore inspection and logistics. FlyLogix is uniquely placed to deliver this service. We have clearly shown the track record, the technology and industry knowledge to complete these operations and are excited about rolling this service out more widely.feedback

Geir Haoy - Kongsberg Seatex

When the bridge goes on land, it will be something like flying a drone from a command center. It will be GPS navigation and lots of high-tech cameras to see what's going around the ship.feedback

Dick Costolo - Twitter

What he's been able to publicly announce he's going to try to do, and then goes ahead and does it in a number of fields all at once, it's just extraordinary. I just don't think there is ... [anyone] else out there like it. Listen, when you say it, it sounds a little bit crazy – he's landing a rocket on a drone ship at sea. I mean this is something he's done. So you just ... have to shake your head at what he's been able to accomplish.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

We're not going to meet some timeline if we are not ready. But we're pretty close.feedback

Jamie Dimon - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

It's almost an embarrassment being American. It's almost an embarrassment being an American citizen travelling around the world ... listening to the stupid s*** we have to deal with in this country. At one point we all have to get our act together or we won't do what we're supposed to do for the average Americans. [The media] should be writing a lot more about that the stuff that is holding back and hurting average Americans. Who really cares about fixed-income trading in the last two weeks of June, I mean seriously.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

The significance is you kill the leader of one of these groups and it sets them back for a day, a week, a month. It's obviously a victory on our side in terms of setting them back. It's the right direction.feedback

Derrick Xiong - EHang

In China it seems like the collaboration between the academics side with the start-up side is still not as strong as (in) the U.S. China is definitely going to be one of the most important players in the AI field because China does have the biggest database. China has the biggest consumer base as well. While the U.S. is still having its own advantage of academic research. U.S. is very strong in theoretical studies as well. Well, I believe China and U.S. will be both leading the way in the AI field.feedback

Derrick Xiong - EHang

The U.S. is a more mature market, people spend more time working on fundamental technologies, while in China it's more about application level or working on business models that you can see results within maybe five to six years. I think this is the area that China still needs to catch up.feedback

Tom Fuller - YouGov

Looking at our survey results, it's easy to speculate that very low awareness of passenger carrying drones contributes to fears about their safety. But as non-passenger drones become ubiquitous, being used for filming weddings and concerts, delivering packages, racing and other activities, consumer awareness will increase and familiarity will ease the fears of many.feedback

Tom Fuller - YouGov

There is good reason to think that market penetration of passenger carrying drones will be quicker than our survey might lead you to believe. Similar levels of caution and even fear were expressed for previous technologies, notably airplanes, but daredevils and postal delivery made them seem commonplace in a very short period. A number of well-respected manufacturers are planning to build passenger drones.feedback

Kevin Tamez - MPM

You have nothing to do but sit on the edge of your bunk and figure out ways to get past the system. You can't get complacent with them. These guys aren't stupid.feedback

Kevin Tamez - MPM

They have to land for you to get the contraband off of them. They can't drop it like a bomb.feedback

Bryan Stirling

Now they're going to fly over the nets, so what do we do next? Is it going to be more money, more tax dollars? Call your representatives. Call the FCC. It's an open comment period. Let them know that this needs to be fixed. It needs to be fixed now. It needs to be fixed yesterday.feedback

Bryan Stirling

We 100 percent know a cell phone was used or multiple cell phones were used while he was incarcerated, and we believe a drone was used to fly in the tools that allowed him to escape. No longer are people stopped from continuing their criminal ways from behind bars. They are physically incarcerated, but they are no longer virtually incarcerated.feedback

Jason Frishman

You can invest between $100 and $100,000 right now from the comfort of your couch. You can go to Netcapital.com, you can invest in anything from a drone company to a Pokémon-Go-style mobile game company to a family fun park to a virtual reality company. They're non-accredited investors, for the first time ever.feedback

Paul Hatfield

We also see a lot of drone bombs. We had hundreds of them since we started in Raqqa.feedback

Steve Landells

Measures should be put in place that will allow the police to identify and locate anyone who flies a drone in an irresponsible way.feedback

Martin Luis Gomez - Facebook

By design, Aquila does nothing fast: It climbs slowly, descends even slower, and when flying upwind moves only at 10-15 mph over the ground. We designed Aquila this way because it is meant to stay in the same area for long periods of time to supply internet access. Aquila is solar-powered and extremely power-efficient – running on the power equivalent of three blow dryers. And what is particularly gratifying is that the improvements we implemented based on Aquila's performance during its first test flight made a significant difference in this flight.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

In this test, it flew for one hour and 46 minutes over the desert and landed smoothly near Yuma, Arizona. We successfully gathered a lot of data to help us optimize Aquila's efficiency. No one has ever built an unmanned airplane that will fly for months at a time, so we need to tune every detail to get this right.feedback

Craig Jenkins

We were flying across the Channel, then did about four or five circles. Then, slowly, we travelled farther east. When I could see the HS1 train line, I knew we were in trouble. Shortly after that we got told Gatwick had closed and we needed to land in Stansted.feedback

Craig Jenkins

I thought it was going to turn into Lord of the Flies at one point. The general consensus was to go back to Gatwick but one person was adamant they were getting off. The captain stepped in and made an executive decision, thank God.feedback

David Ellison

It is very much a world we live in today where it's drone technology, and fifth-generation fighters are really what the United States Navy is calling the last man-made fighter that we're actually going to produce, so it's really [about] exploring the 'end of an era' of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today.feedback

Jappie Mhango

The launch of the testing corridor is particularly important to support transportation and data collection where land transport infrastructure is either not feasible or difficult during emergencies.feedback

Johannes Wedenig

Drone technology has many potential applications ... One that we have already tested in Malawi is to transport infant blood samples to laboratories for HIV testing.feedback

Fernando Pinto - TAP Portugal

Due to the irresponsible behaviour of some – and I'm speaking in a European and global context – (drones) are being used very badly, in a very dangerous way, and that worries us.feedback

Steve Burns

We're hoping to get certified as a light sport aircraft - 20 hours of training, and if you can fly a drone, you can fly this. We built it to be super easy to fly, that was the main design element we went for. It's very much like a drone. It's complete fly-by-wire, it has a joystick for directional control. A forward push of this angles the vehicle, all automatically the computer does everything, keeps you balanced and drives you forward. Left-right, and then for up and down there's a button for changing your altitude.feedback

Elad Aharonson

A lot of data is collected on the desk of the officer, and he doesn't know what to do with it.feedback

Balazs Kerulo

It should be ready within two or three years as a product. I think that the technology is ready. It's evolving, it's booming, we have better and better battery technologies. We have all means of a computer- controlled drone technology that is needed for this ... I still believe that even me or you will be flying these kinds of things within ten or maybe 15 years.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We want them to create new companies and lots of jobs. We're going to give you the competitive advantage that you need.feedback

Balazs Kerulo

I'm quite positive that within 15 or 20 years, the big dream of mankind will come true. I mean if you've seen Star Wars, if you've seen any other Science Fiction since the 40s it's in the collective vision of mankind.feedback

Jeff Davis - Navy

I can tell you it was an Iranian-made drone. Public statements aside, we have not seen the Russians do any actions that cause us concern. We continue to operate, making some adjustments for prudent measures.feedback

Jeff Davis - Navy

To be clear, we prefer to keep this channel of communication open. We want to de-escalate, not escalate. We remain available on our end. I'll leave it to the Russians to state their level of participation.feedback

Nat Shaver

We have more than five cameras on the boat filming every time we go sailing, which we can sync with the data. If we have footage from outside the boat from a drone, we can also sync that. And when you can put data with the video it gives you a much better overview of what's happening in the boat. It makes the analysis that much more powerful.feedback

Bailey White

I had never seen anyone be able to shoot the angles he was shooting. While the boat was up in the air foiling, he was getting so low flying this drone that he was actually below the boat, so you got a sense for exactly how the boat was performing and how the sailors were doing.feedback

Ramazan Sharif

We are not the initiator of any conflict and war but we do not tolerate creation of insecurity in our country.feedback

Richard Liu

Today we have over 70,000 delivery men working on the street. It's high cost, you know. If you can use robotics to deliver a parcel, the cost will be very low. That kind of logistic fee will drop down at least 70 percent, so on our balance sheet, I think it will be profitable.feedback

Richard Liu

In the past, it's very hard to do business in the countryside, because the logistic fee is very high, the cost is too high.feedback

Richard Liu

In each village, we have a delivery man; he lives there and works there, and he's got a backyard. He's like a small distributor of us in that village. So we can use our drone to fly to the delivery man's backyard directly. And point-to-point is fixed.feedback

Richard Liu

We still need a lot of humans to use the camera, to observe or control the drone, the delivery robotics, and the people-free warehouse. We still need a lot of workers to maintain or fix the whole system. But if you look at the whole country, or the whole society, I think some people will lose their jobs. I think it will bring a lot of revolution.feedback

Tyler Mason

Some industries (i.e. real estate) will post on the site that they're looking for pilots, and pilots can then accept the jobs from the Dronebase website.feedback

Jordan Rising

Many of the industrial applications of [drones] are being adopted by survey and engineering firms. Most of these companies are hiring pilots who can likely expect to make between $50,000 and $70,000, depending on their expertise and the equipment they are operating.feedback

Rupert Sweeting - Knight Frank

Drone photographs, particularly of large country houses, have become very popular in recent years. Aerial shots are a great way to provide prospective buyers with an overview of the whole property, showcasing the size and beauty of the land that goes with the property, as well as of the surrounding countryside. The shots also give an all-important perspective on any additional accommodation or outbuildings and where they are located.feedback

Donald J. Trump

China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented act.feedback

Colonel Ryan Dillon - US Army

Unfortunately, there have been (these) incidents that have taken our focus away from fighting ISIS.feedback

Colonel Ryan Dillon - US Army

This clearly showed a threat even if it were a warning shot; it was something that showed a hostile intent, a hostile action and posed a threat to our forces because this drone still had munitions that were still on it.feedback

Chen Zhang

So today, as you have seen in China, e-commerce is huge but in remote villages, most people are not benefitting from e-commerce … so to solve that problem we will develop our drone program.feedback

Chen Zhang

The battery cost today is still very high… it is a major issue we need to address.feedback

Guy van Rentergem

The owner now has a nice bathymetric analysis. It was like a black hole, and there was no data from the center of the lake.feedback

Chris Bonnet - Federal Aviation Administration

We're doing it completely legal, we have very, very short deliveries from the drone where we have a safe takeoff location and the landing area is a Drone Dispatch team member who's receiving the box of doughnuts.feedback

Michael Hancock

This is exciting stuff and I think as we get ready for not only drones in the air, and get ready for autonomous vehicles, this is our future this is how we're going to become a more efficient 21st century nation, society quite frankly.feedback

Ju Yong Chol

It is the United States' hostile policy and its aggressive joint military drills, nuclear threats and military build-up around the Korean peninsula that really aggravates the situation on the Korean peninsula and the region and which compels the DPRK to also up its nuclear deterrence.feedback

Wang Yi

We urge North Korea to not do anything to again violate U.N. Security Council resolutions. At the same time, we hope all parties can maintain restraint, not be influenced by every single incident, ...persist in carrying out Security Council resolutions on North Korea and persevere with the resolution of the issue through peaceful means, dialogue and consultation.feedback

Ben Ainslie

I compare it to the World Series of Cricket in the 1970s. They really revolutionised how cricket was filmed and watched. That same revolution is taking place in the America's Cup. The boats are smaller and faster but we've got more cameras on board, drone technology and all the audio. So it will be an incredible spectacle and one of the closest America's Cup in history. It has all the ingredients to be the best-ever.feedback

Ron Fehlen

The landing of OTV-4 [the name of this mission] marks another success for the X-37B program and the nation. This mission once again set an on-orbit endurance record and marks the vehicle's first landing in the state of Florida. We are incredibly pleased with the performance of the space vehicle and are excited about the data gathered to support the scientific and space communities.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

We're here today to say that we don't agree with these drones. We don't agree with this obscenity that's going on before our very eyes here. That's why just as much as we want to get rid of landmines, small arms, nuclear weapons, we want to get rid of drones as well.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

Because they are the ultimate in sanitised warfare where you immunise yourself against the reality of it, knowing full well that a family with barely enough to eat are going to be killed by a multi-million pound weapon at the press of a button by someone in an air conditioned office in the mid-west of the USA or right here in Lincolnshire.feedback

Alex Chatham

It's quiet, there's nothing about it that's menacing, there's nothing about it that's jarring or will put you at unease. We're trying to create a market that doesn't exist now.feedback

Michael Chambliss

Drones are a new vernacular within the language of cinematography. Movies in the 1950s had their look, and part of their look was due to the idea that a camera was a 150-pound thing. And all of a sudden when cameras got lighter, we could start doing road movies, all of a sudden concepts like 'Easy Rider' became possible. The way we move a camera influences how we tell our stories.feedback

Doug Gurr

We are constantly inventing on behalf of our customers, and our development centres in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London play a major role in Amazon's global innovation story. By the end of this year, we will have more than 1,500 innovation-related roles here in Britain, working on everything from machine learning and drone technology to streaming video technology and Amazon Web Services.feedback

Greg Janzen

He's ill-informed. And same with Mr. [Ahmed] Hussen, who's the immigration minister. I don't think they realize the impact of their decisions right now. They're trying to cover this story up. I'll even f-----g put a drone up there. The local RCMP want to give it and they can't. If they do it, they lose their jobs. So, I'm going to take things into my own hands.feedback

Dominic Grieve

This failure to provide what we consider to be relevant documents is profoundly disappointing. The Government should be more transparent about these matters and permit proper scrutiny of them. (The) investigation of Khan's activities led to the disruption of the attacks he planned, thereby avoiding what could have been very significant loss of life.feedback

Martin Short - Natural Resources Defense Council

Do you realize If a drone hit this crowd, Trump eliminates all his problems? That's the kind of power we have.feedback

Michael Fallon

In the most extreme circumstances we have made it very clear that you can't rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike.feedback

Michael Fallon

Mr Corbyn wants to be prime minister of this country in six weeks time yesterday we had the staggering performance of someone who wants to be prime minister who wouldn't necessarily authorize strikes again terrorists, he is against the nuclear deterrent, would stop building the submarines, we have already started building he wouldn't control our borders and earlier he has even questioned our Nato deployment. You can t rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike.feedback

Andrew Gwynne

The Labour party is very clear. We're committed to a credible nuclear capability at the minimum end of the scale, delivered through continuous at-sea deterrent. That is Labour party policy and it will be in the manifesto. We are committed to renewing the Trident system. We would not be in a position where the first choice would be to press that red button. We believe in multilateralism. We believe in sitting down and negotiating away our nuclear weapons systems to create a nuclear weapon free world. We also need to make sure no other countries develop or get nuclear weapons as well.feedback

Michael Fallon

Jeremy Corbyn made it absolutely clear that he is still against the deterrent, and he was then corrected by his own party. So we had chaos from Labour last night, which doubles the security risk to this country when you have somebody standing to be prime minister who his own party is then having to correct. And you are left completely unsure as to what would actually happen to our nuclear deterrent. This is somebody who would certainly put the security of our country at risk. And if you want stronger and stable leadership then it has to be Theresa May and the Conservatives.feedback

Peter Stockel

We are particularly keen to reach out and encourage organisations that might not have worked with the defence and security sector before, such as those developing commercial driverless vehicles, drone delivery services and robotic agriculture, to get involved with the challenge and help us rapidly advance the way we deliver tactical military logistics.feedback

Rukmini Callimachi

In all of the areas that I have visited, ISIS dug a complicated network of tunnels. And so what they're able to do is they retreat inside the tunnels. And then from there, they're able to send a drone up into the air. So they're completely protected and unseen from our surveillance. And yet, they're able to see. So what they suspect is happening is that the drone is sent out to collect information to identify the location of where the enemy troops are. And then from there, they're able to pinpoint that place and then start aiming mortars at it as well as aiming munitions from the drone itself.feedback

Mohammad Shahzadah

The earth felt like a boat in a storm. I thought my house was being bombed. Last year a drone strike targeted a house next to mine, but this time it felt like the heavens were falling. The children and women were very scared.feedback

Andrew Birkin

I have a lot of toys around the house, but it's more of a way of connecting with the kids. [The toys] went away when my older ones grew up, but now I get them out to spend time with them and fiddle about myself. I'm fortunate – my five-year-old loves World War One and rockets and planes, so that's interesting for me as well. I even bought a drone, to take photos and show him.feedback

Luigi Freda

It was a difficult mission because the churches were in very bad condition, so much so the firefighters could not get in to make a detailed analysis. First, a robot came in to monitor the back of the church and then another robot entered at the front. We then managed to get a drone and we filmed the entire interior, which resulted in the 3D model.feedback

Rebecca Morelle

We had come to see a lava flow that had appeared overnight. A giant stream of rock, glowing red, was oozing down the slopes … Dozens of tourists had also been brought by Etna's guides to see the spectacle.feedback

David H Dunn

Previously you had a hedge, you had a wall and you could do whatever you wanted in your garden without people disturbing you. That has changed because of drones. It's true for celebrities. It's true for everyone. Anecdotally I've heard that burglars using drones is a big issue for police forces. People are using them to fly behind properties to see if the lights are on, to see what sort of French windows they have or whether there are windows open.feedback

Steve Barry

As awareness of what drones are and what they can do continues to grow, police forces have seen increases in concerns and reports by the public. We have to balance the growth of this technology by ensuring that the public are aware of the strong regulatory framework and detailed user guidance that is available relating to drone use.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The first reflight of an orbital class booster did its mission perfectly, dropped off the second stage, came back and landed on the drone ship, right on the bullseye. It's an amazing day for space as a whole, for the space industry. It means you can fly and refly an orbital class booster, which is the most expensive part of the rocket. It's been 15 years to get to this point. It's taken us a long time. It's really a great day, not just for SpaceX but for the space industry as a whole and proving something can be done when many people said it was impossible.feedback

Laura Chapman

With new technology comes new responsibility. If the animal's looking at the drone, if they're looking at you, they're being harassed. We just want people to know how big an impact they can have.feedback

Louise Ellman

Civilian drones have the potential to fundamentally change how many industries – including the transport sector – work. The inquiry will consider the implications of this technology. We will also be asking whether enough is being done to ensure drone technology can reach its potential without compromising the safety of other aircraft and the public in general.feedback

Our project has been making large efforts to be at the lead of exciting new research methods conducted with drones, and I was lucky enough to remember to bring one out with me so you could witness this exciting event of a leatherback returning to the sea after completing her nesting process. What is so very exciting about using the drone is that we are able to not only see how the leatherback moves on land, but how graceful she is once she's in the water clear of the shore.feedback

Jenell Black

Once in a rare while our team out conducting a morning survey happens upon a sea turtle that is up late enough she may still be on the beach as the sun rises. Since light disrupts nesting sea turtles, photographs may not be taken of nesting sea turtles at night, but sea turtles that are up under the bright morning light are free game to take photos of respectfully and without the use of flash.feedback

David Rosenberg - AeroFarms

My recommendation is to stop wasting your time trying to explain something that is as simple as an asset class that is priced for perfection at some points realizes that the world is not a perfect place. A president can certainly fly a drone whenever and wherever he wants, but he is never bigger than the business cycle and over time has little influence over investment returns as well.feedback

Steve Barry

I would not be at all surprised if other forces follow in due course - the question is not whether they will, it's when. There may be an opportunity at some point in the future to rationalise what we need our cops to do because we find drones can do it more effectively and more cost-efficiently…an example of that would be looking for missing people. That opportunity has not yet manifested…there will be a point where that question gets asked. I think it's a brave senior officer who will make that step that is going to cut cops because they have got drones.feedback

Justin Bronk

It is clearly enormous overkill. It certainly exposes in very stark terms the challenge which militarizes face in attempting to deal with the adaptation of cheap and readily available civilian technology with extremely expensive, high-end hardware designed for state-on-state warfare.feedback

David Perkins

In fact, if I'm the enemy, I'm thinking, Hey, I'm just gonna get on eBay and buy as many of these $300 quadcopters as I can and expend all the Patriot missiles out there.feedback

David Perkins

That quadcopter that cost 200 bucks from Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot. Now, that worked, they got it, OK, and we love Patriot missiles. I'm not sure that's a good economic exchange ratio. In fact, if I'm the enemy, I'm thinking, 'Hey, I'm just gonna get on eBay and buy as many of these quadcopters as I can and expend all the Patriot missiles out there'.feedback

David Perkins

The problem is on the kinetic-exchange ratio, the Patriot won. That quadcopter that cost $200 from Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot. So on the kinetic-exchange ratio they won. So what we've done is look at it say this is a commander's problem. This is not an air-defense problem. This is a commander's problem. We defined it from the very beginning, and now we're looking at, hey, there's ways to get after this with electronic warfare, with cyber. There's all kinds of different ways that we could get to this.feedback

David Perkins

We had a very close ally of ours that was dealing with an adversary that was using a small Quadcopter [Unmanned Aircraft System] and they shot it down with a Patriot missile. Now that worked, they got it! We love Patriot missiles, they are great! The problem is, on the kinetic-exchange ratio, the Patriot won. That Quadcopter that cost $200 (£160) from Amazon did not stand a chance against a Patriot. On the economic exchange-ratio, I'm not sure that's [so] good.feedback

David Perkins

It certainly exposes in very stark terms the challenge which militaries face in attempting to deal with the adaptation of cheap and readily available civilian technology with extremely expensive, high-end hardware designed for state-on-state warfare.feedback

Matthew Olsen

I think these rules proved effective operationally – I never saw an instance where we missed an opportunity to carry out a strike because of too much lawyering.feedback

Matthew Olsen

I am concerned that loosening standards will harm our ability over time to carry out these operations, because it will affect our standing with the countries in which we need to operate.feedback

Richard Vigne

I don't think the world of conservation has the money to spend that would be needed to make an anti-poaching drone effective.feedback

Luke Hartig

How much are we supporting our partners if we are only saying that we will take a strike if there's a continuing and imminent threat to U.S. persons?feedback

Barack Obama

We have to create an architecture for this because [of] the potential for abuse.feedback

Guillermo Barros Schelotto

I'm not looking to hide anything with closed training sessions, I do it so we can have a little more intimacy and when the press is there you have to be more careful with your football language. All the same the drone was going around the Bombonera and we were training in Casa Amarilla, I don't think it was spying on us!feedback

Simona Jankowski - Goldman Sachs

GoPro faces significant challenges following saturation of its core action cameras market, product rollout issues in the holiday season, and a disappointing entry into the drone market.feedback

Rashid Abdi

The concern in Washington has been mounting for some time now. The Trump administration is simply reiterating what has been policy, with slight variations. U.S. special forces are already on the ground. Drone attacks have been scaled up.feedback

Doug Brimeyer

Anything we can do to afford those animals an edge to help them survive is pretty critical.feedback

Doug Brimeyer

It's a crucial time of year for those animals and they don't need to be burning up additional energy stores unnecessarily.feedback

Chris Colligan

The concern is if it is found on those feedgrounds, it could be exacerbated by the elk concentrated in those areas. It's slowly creeping toward our fed elk populations.feedback

Ben Marcus

This round is all about finding a set of partners to help us globalize.feedback

John Dodero - United Parcel Service

We see this as an exploration into this new technology. We have no idea how all that will play out until we find out how to integrate them into the business.feedback

Junyang Woon - Infinium

We are focused on indoor applications (for) very practical purposes because for outdoor applications, we have to deal with regulations. We have to deal with issues like privacy as well (but) if you fly drones indoors, you do away with all these issues. We are looking into fully replacing the manpower needed to do stocktaking, Let's say warehouse workers leave work, you press a button and the drone will do the stocktaking. When the workers come back in the morning, all the stock would be taken before they actually start work.feedback

Gretchen West

In the drone industry, it seems counter intuitive, but we actually want regulation. And not having regulations is putting a halt to the growth of this industry.feedback

Ren Tuanjie

In order to celebrate the completion of our family tree, we decided to have a get-together and photo session. The oldest was 94, and the youngest was 4 years old.feedback

Gretchen West

There aren't a lot for the drone industry to begin with. And I can't imagine they'd do anything from a manned aviation perspective to jeopardize the safety of the airspace.feedback

Gregory McNeal

If regulations for unmanned aircraft are held up or are stripped away, there's actually no way for drones to access the airspace.feedback

Jon Hagranes

Since the commercial drone rules went into effect last summer, our business has skyrocketed. The quarter after the rules were out was three times bigger than our previous quarter.feedback

Dave Bowen

Measure's business has definitely grown since Part 107 took effect. The number of cell tower drone inspections has at least tripled.feedback

Gregory McNeal

We're investing millions of dollars in this space. And every day that there is a delay is a day that we are farther from being able to really watch our business grow.feedback

Mike Lissone - Eurocontrol

The biggest challenge we're facing is: on the one hand we've a very conservative aviation community, where we take quite long years to make changes because we want to keep everything very safe; and now we've a very innovative industry coming up who doesn't want to wait five to seven years, it wants to implement things now.feedback

Koen Vrints

The moment you take a course you get a lot of information on the airspace. We get plans where we can see visually where locations are, where control zone from an airport is, where helicopter training area is and how we have to look at it on the plan.feedback

Jürgen Verstaen

So, there's a link between our software and the drone that informs him: watch out, the virtual wall is here, you cannot continue.feedback

Jürgen Verstaen

We know we're standing near an airport. And if you look at the system indeed, it tells me on the spot 'you cannot fly here,' because… I don't know yet why. I just click a bit further and it will tell me in detail why I'm not allowed to fly here.feedback

Falah Hammad Hindi

The weapon of choice is the drone. The snipers are highly effective. They are foreign fighters, the most committed.feedback

Keren Elazari

Security decisions you make every day make a difference. A motivated attacker can get past any barrier. It's worse than the flu. It's not about secrets. It's about the technologies that power our way of life. Our future might have our toaster attacking the neighbor's drone, or his car.feedback

Tristan Randall - Autodesk

Whenever I see bats make sharp turns and perform upside down, perching with such elegant wing movements and deformations, I get mesmerized.feedback

Trip Chowdhry - Global Equities Research

We are at the tail end of the social media boom. Novelty is giving way to fatigue. Fundamental investors should avoid the IPO. Snapchat is a total junk, hyper-inflated. Durability is absent. All the junk IPOs I mentioned had their uniqueness too. Remember Groupon - group buying; Zynga - social gaming; GoPro - action photography and a media company and drone company. These are all instruments of blowing hot air into a company before a collapse.feedback

Nasser Mohammed Nasser

Who do we talk to? America? Where is America? They would kill two or three from al-Qaida on one hand and 10 or 15 civilians on the other hand. Where is this al-Qaida they claim to be killing? ... There are many other incidents like ours due to drones.feedback

Rafi Yoeli - Urban Aeronautics

Just imagine a dirty bomb in a city and a chemical substance or something else and this vehicle can come in robotically, remotely piloted, come in to the street and decontaminate an area.feedback

Tal Inbar

It could revolutionize several aspects of warfare, including the medical evacuation of soldiers on the battlefield.feedback

Kyle Landry - Lux Research

There's a bit of a fear factor here. The high volume of drones, plus regulations that can't quite keep pace, equals a need for personal counter-drone technology.feedback

Priti Patel

The UK is at the forefront of investing in cutting-edge technology to tackle the global challenges of today such as disease pandemics, medical emergencies and disaster responses. This innovative, modern approach ensures we are achieving the best results for the world's poorest people and delivering value for money for British taxpayers.feedback

Aaron L. Connelly

The Chinese have regularly tested new U.S. administrations when it comes to surveillance; it happened in 2001 and 2009. The data gleaned from this surveillance makes it easier for the U.S. navy to detect Chinese submarines and that's been one of Beijing's regular gripes about U.S. sea power in the area.feedback

Aaron L. Connelly

That would have been a very oblique way to make that point as nothing about the drone had anything to do with Taiwan, so I suspect its primarily about surveillance activities. Previous harassment of U.S. navy ships occurred much closer to the Chinese mainland but this incident took place as about 600 kilometers away, and it was even outside the Chinese nine-dash line, which Beijing has used to claim much of the South China Sea.feedback

Hua Chunying

There is a bit of over-reading, or a bit thinking about it too much: 'was it a misjudgement or orders from higher up'? But if you read the answer from the defence ministry spokesman, the facts are really simple and clear.feedback

Peter Cook

This incident was inconsistent with both international law and standards of professionalism for conduct between navies at sea. The US has addressed those facts with the Chinese through the appropriate diplomatic and military channels, and have called on Chinese authorities to comply with their obligations under international law and to refrain from further efforts to impede lawful US activities.feedback

Gregory Poling

For a lot of folks in the Pentagon, this over-stepped that line between legal contestation and a military threat.feedback

Mira Rapp-Hooper - Center for a New American Security

This move, if accurately reported, is highly escalatory, and it is hard to see how Beijing will justify it legally.feedback

Xiong Zhiyong

China wants to send a message to the U.S. side about how serious the consequences can be if sensitive issues in China-U.S. relations are handled unilaterally and indiscreetly. The return of the seized drone shows that China hopes the U.S. will not provoke China on these issues and engage in solving issues through consultation.feedback

Michael Raska

They use the South China Sea as political, economic and informational means to project power and to influence domestic and external perception that the South China Sea is basically Chinese. This puts the U.S. and China into contending trajectories, but neither side has the strategic interest to escalate beyond these low-level incidents.feedback

Justin Higgins

China's seizure of a U.S. unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) operating lawfully and in plain sight of a U.S. Navy vessel was unacceptable. China's action had no basis under international law.feedback

Peter Cook

Registered our objection to China's unlawful seizure of a U.S. unmanned underwater vehicle operating in international waters in the South China Sea.feedback

Peter Cook

Through direct engagement with Chinese authorities, we have secured an understanding that the Chinese will return the U.U.V. to the United States.feedback

Zhang Huang

As soon as an underwater drone enters our waters for close in surveillance, it may be used to collect all sorts of information about submarine routes for our navy, seriously threatening our naval security.feedback

Ni Lexiong

This is a much smaller incident, it won't affect the overall picture of China-U.S. relations.feedback

Yang Yi

If China needs to take it, we'll take it. [The United States] can't block us. It's natural for us to take possession of and research for a bit these types of things that America sends to our doorstep.feedback

Yang Yujun

In order to prevent this device from posing a danger to the safe navigation of passing ships and personnel, the Chinese lifeboat adopted a professional and responsible attitude in investigating and verifying the device.feedback

Chris Hackett

I'm sure there will be a lot of drones given as Christmas gifts, and we'll start to see more drone-related claims.feedback

Justin Herndon - Allstate Insurance

Generally speaking, we evaluate every claim on its own merit. We continue to follow the evolution of drones and its impact on our customers' policies.feedback

Christie Alderman

There are a lot of unfortunate things that can go wrong.feedback

Khaled Gabry

With the collapse of Saddam's regime and the intervention of the United States, Iraq was left with no government. So we decided to call the tribal people to protect the relics. We sent people to set up check points and patrol the area.feedback

We don't know exactly how many relics the extremists have taken away, but we know they took some portable and easy-to-smuggle cultural artefacts.feedback

Hong Yoo-jung

The position of the thumb determines the speed and direction of the drone.feedback

Chad Colby

You literally push a couple of buttons, the drone flies the field like a lawnmower, collects the data, and processes the data. It's a very valuable tool.feedback

Don Meij

We invested in this partnership, and technology, because we believe drone delivery will be an essential component of our pizza deliveries, so even more customers can receive the freshest, hottest pizza we can offer. I am proud of this partnership that has not only delivered this momentous event, but is leading the world for this important technology.feedback

Don Meij

This will actually create jobs. As we expand, we will look to hire additional team members whose roles will be focused on drone order loading and fleet management.feedback

Genevieve Corbin

Two crew members performed an evasive manoeuvre to avoid the unidentified object.feedback

Brad Cicero

The pilots' initial assessment was that it looked like a balloon. After debriefing, there is potential that the object was a drone.feedback

Adam Lisberg - DJI

Four years ago, it was enough to take something out of a box, you push a button and it flies. The smart money is now in drone services.feedback

Rory O'Driscoll - Scale Venture Partners

Consumers buy drones, and it's a disposable item. They play with it, and then they are done.feedback

Erinn Murphy

This is not only a surprise to us, but another ding on management's credibility. Not only were we surprised by the modest level of initial units sold, but we believe it is a possibility that Karma will not be available for the key holiday season.feedback

Paul Griffiths

If people start to think you can't fly into Dubai because you may get diverted because they can't control the drone activity in the area, then that has a very serious reputational impact.feedback

Paul Griffiths

If people are caught infringing the airspace and threatening the safety of civil aviation, then clearly the penalties have to reflect that.feedback

Paul Griffiths

We have got to find a way of controlling it immediately. We just cannot have any more closures caused by infringements of drones in controlled airspace.feedback

Mark R. Cheadle - US Army

We think the space has gotten interesting ... and we like the idea of having storylines around individuals that we can build up as heroes. We see this as a journey toward a younger demographic.feedback

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

You know, it's kind of self-explanatory. I think we've all, probably everybody in here, probably at some point or another had a drone-related problem.feedback

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

I was like, Uh oh. You could've given me a lot of guesses and I wouldn't have come up with this one.feedback

Josh Tomlin

This isn't the first obstacle we've had to overcome. So face it head-on. And we've talked about it since day one of spring training. We're never going to back down from a challenge. This is another challenge for us to accept and move forward. The next guy that comes up has to step up and do their part and hopefully it's just a little bump in the road and we can continue to be successful.feedback

Josh Tomlin

It really doesn't affect me at all. It will be on my fifth day, I'll be on normal rest. When I found out I was going tomorrow, I stuck to the game plan that I was going to do Monday and go out there and compete and win a game.feedback

Steve Burns

We launch from atop the truck, and efficiencies are not as good as if you could just launch from 30 miles way, but they are staggering.feedback

Steve Burns

Like a lot of new technologies you kind of go for the low hanging fruit. And the long distance out in rural areas and some suburban, that's the longest cost per package because it's not very efficient for the driver or the truck. So you start there, then you move inland, if you can imagine a drone jumping up on top of a building, maybe, and there is a central landing spot where everybody picks up their packages…it could get that precise.feedback

Keller Rinaudo - Zipline

It is a vastly easier problem – flying than driving. If we had regulatory permission, we would be delivering to your house right now.feedback

Dave Meredith

This is an incredibly concerning incident; the close proximity of the drone to the passenger aircraft shows a complete disregard by the operator for public safety, and we are appealing to the public for information to help us track down this reckless drone operator.feedback

Stephen Prior

All of the battery-powered multi-rotors suffer from poor endurance, so 20-30 minutes is tops. We can fly, essentially, forever provided we've got fuel in the tank in the fuel generator in the ground station.feedback

Stephen Prior

It's basically a virtual mast, so you could imagine surveillance operations, rescue missions at sea or on land, surveillance of large complexes like nuclear power stations.feedback

Stephen Prior

There are expensive systems out there; very very expensive military systems, so a quarter of a million pounds plus. And we sit somewhere in between that. Our price point is around about 75,000 pounds (GBP) for a complete system solution.feedback

Ned Price

The president has emphasized that the U.S. Government should be as transparent as possible with the American people about our counter-terrorism operations, the manner in which they are conducted, and their results.

John Kerry

We have had longstanding conversations with Pakistan and Afghanistan about this objective with respect to Mullah Mansour, and both countries' leaders were notified of the air strike. Mullah Mansour, as I said a moment ago, has been actively involved in planning attacks in Kabul, across Afghanistan, presenting a threat to Afghan civilians and to the coalition forces that are there.feedback

John Kerry

This action sends a clear message to the world that we will continue to stand with our Afghan partners as they look to build a more stable, united, secure and prosperous Afghanistan. The United States has long maintained that an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned reconciliation process is the shortest way to achieve peace and peace is what we want. Mansour was a threat to that effort and to bringing an end to the violence.feedback

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

The biggest surprise is that they delayed Karma. They said they wanted to work on the features... they did not explain the delay and why they did not notice it three months ago.feedback

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

Consumer demand for GoPro remains solid. Unit sell-thru was close to first quarter 2015 levels, a quarter which benefited from the launch of HERO4. Revenue exceeded our guide and, importantly, unit sell-thru rates were approximately 50% higher than sell-in which drove global inventory levels down. And while we had to make the difficult decision to delay our drone, Karma, the upside is that Karma's launch should now benefit from the holidays.feedback
