The future of drones Anonymous 04/06/2019 (Sat) 04:36:39 [Preview] No. 20287

How will we prevent terrorists/ mass shooters from fielding drones, without fielding a massive number of drones that can shoot unauthorized drones down ourselves? I don't want to have an army of flying police over cities and concerts,
which could be hackable too, but I don't think we are going to be able to avoid it. All it takes is one major terrorist attack and then there will be copycat drones and flying peace keepers everywhere.

ISIS has already began using suicide drones. You can bet China, Russia, Istael and the gulf states will field the over battlefields and dissidents alike. We're trapped in another AI/drone arms race.

I am actually sorta surprised nobody has considered trying to arm off the shelf retail drones yet. It wouldn't be particularly accurate, but you don't really have to be in a crowded area.

Someone trying to do that with an off the shelf drone would probably run into weight limitations and/or the drone giving off identifying information.

I don't know much about them, but many of the consumer models have built in wifi which opens them up to fingerprinting and quick detection. That in itself should make them pretty easy to detect if someone is dumb enough to try targeting a high profile event or person.

Military drones are a completely different story. The problem they run into is electronic warfare that can hijack or jam the control uplink. This is where autonomous AI controlled drones would be useful, but that's treading into Terminator territory.

You know ISIS and other groups have used drones to drop grenades?

Ancient news. Humanity's been living with killbots for a long, long time now. Depending, perhaps, on how you define A.I. In the form of naval weapon systems—homing torpedoes—it's been more than seventy years.

Suicide drones?

For about thirty years now, a dozen or so nation-states could unleash weapons on each other that were at least as sophisticated as present day commercial drone technology is.

What makes replacing the jet engine on a cruise missile with a propeller engine so novel? It's still a cruise missile. The problem here isn't about the sudden appearance of new technology, nor A.I. It's about the widespread availability to non-nation-state actors.

Yeah I've seen those pictures and videos from Syria and Ukraine. There was also that incident in Venezuela where an alleged drone exploded in the air.

Sure, drones can do a grenade attack, but there are other methods that terrorists can use to get higher body counts, which is all they really seem to care about. Drones would be more useful for assassinations because the commercial drones can't really do much more than a grenade attack.
