Video of Houston Police secret aerial drones

Not sure about the reporting style.

http://www.boingboing.net/2010/01/12/video-of-houston-pol.html?utm_...

Public safety application include:
• Mobility
• Evacuation
• Home land security
• Search and rescue
• Tactical
Are the above applications listed in order of priority?


I wish I had a ground station like this.

If watching someone from a distance with a video camera is illegal activity what does that say for the reporting doing just that?

a touch of sensational reporting.
Air space closed? well yeah. Air space is closed all the time. They're demoing a product, you close a part of the airspace. nothing-special-about-that.
I work on wildfires and thank the gods the airspaces are closed or you would have some idiot reporter in a helicopter flying right into the tankers.
UAVs. Really, this is nothing new. Hobbyists have been doing this sort of thing for years.

I don't who is worse sometimes. Governments or media."

Not the best context for publicity in my personal opinion. By the way, I think ArduStation is handier...

This is a report from 2007.

See http://www.click2houston.com/video/14655819/index.html (the news channel's web site)

I'm not sure why it's popped back onto the radar (pun intended) as if it was a 2010 story.
