Professor Gregory McNeal appeared on MSNBC to discuss the FAA’s selection of civilian drone testing sites in nine states. During the six minute interview McNeal discussed the positive uses of drones, and some of the privacy concerns raised by drone critics. One of his articles in Forbes was excerpted during the interview and was a central part of the discussion with MSNBC host Craig Melvin. Professor McNeal has testified before Congress about the integration of civilian drones into U.S. airspace and has written about military drones in an award winning article forthcoming in the Georgetown Law Journal. His research about military drones is funded by a $175,000 grant and will be published as a book next year.
