An article by Sam Holt on the AccessData website is headed Drone attacks. How can we fight back? Its context is the growing threat of drones being used for criminal purposes – the transport of drugs, sending material into prisons and unauthorised surveillance for example – with the potential for using them for terrorist purposes.
What seems eccentric one year has become the norm by the next, and the ability to extract drone data may become relevant beyond law enforcement and anti-terrorist groups. Breaches of privacy, damage to property, or personal injury caused by crashing drones are among the possible reasons why drones may become the subject of civil claims.
Sam Holt identifies some of the information which can be obtained from a drone. He shows how drone data can be imported into an application like AccessData’s Quin-C, subjected to analysis and displayed both as data and graphically.
