Unmanned Systems and Privacy (Drones on the Homefront)

On Wednesday August 8th, 2012 I will be appearing at AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems North America Conference.  My panel, Getting in Front of the Issue: A Discussion on Unmanned Systems and Privacy will feature a discussion about the increasing use of unmanned aircraft by public safety officials, federal government agencies and commercial entities.  We will address questions regarding the legality of UAS data collection and the implications of UAS operations on privacy protection.

Speakers include:

  • Moderator: Mr. Alan Frazier:University of North Dakota,
  • Panelist: Mr. Matthew Henshon: Henshon Parker, LLP,
  • Panelist: Mr. Benjamin Miller:Mesa County Sheriff’s Office,
  • Panelist: Mr. Chris Calabrese: American Civil Liberties Union,
  • Panelist: Mr. Douglas Marshall: TAAC/New Mexico State University,
  • Panelist: Mr. Gregory McNeal: Pepperdine University School of Law,
  • Panelist: Mr. John Villasenor: The Brookings Institution

For a primer on the implications of unmanned system usage inside the U.S. see: A Primer on Domestic Drones: Legal, Policy, and Privacy Implications.  My remarks are based in part on my work-in-progress, Drones and Privacy Governance.
