DARPA Pushes For FAA Approval For Military Drones Over American Cities

Just a little over 10 years after drone surveillance inside U.S. borders was declared a conspiracy theory, it is now an indisputable fact of life. So, too, are military grade drones along the “border,” which in reality constitutes a 100-mile-wide swath that encircles the continental United States and 2/3 of its population.According to a new report from Defense One, this level of access is still seen as a restriction by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or DARPA. As new forms of autonomous aircraft take to the skies such as the latest Blackhawk helicopter drones that could be ready by 2019, DARPA and aircraft developers want permission to fly over large cities as needed.
