This project focuses on the modern uses of drone technology on the global stage. Currently, organizations all over the world are interested in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). We found that a large number of UAV’s are produced in the United States, but there are over 21 countries that manufacture and distribute them. The majority of UAV’s are used for military purposes, which is one of the more controversial elements of the debate. While military aims dominate much of the conversation there are other uses for drones including research and domestic surveillance, though many questions remain unanswered about the ethics of UAV use.
