 Drones in the Whites
As you may or may not know, we are on the verge in the US of having a great many drone flights. We are entering a whole new era of surveillance in the land of the free.

I saw this interesting map http://publicintelligence.net/dod-us-dr ... ities-map/

What makes it particularly interesting is UAV activities on Mt Washington.

It's not clear whether flights originate there, or the station is being used for control of surveillance flights within the US or overseas...
Of course, it may all be complete hogwash ... interesting, though , wouldnt you say?

Perhaps we can send drones in now to look for all of the lost, unprepared hikers....then take appropriate action. :lol:

Actually, not that crazy Bob...they likely have thermal imaging cameras on-board, which would work well to find random lost people...

I did see this on the news a while back, and another article yesterday on msnbc. No sightings yesterday in the presi's but I did see a lot of potential SAR people just asking for trouble. One guy with a sweatshirt wrapped around waist, shorts, t-shirt and a small bottle of water headed up into the dark clouds towards W, later in the afternoon. Maybe drones were looking for him, he looked like he could be a candidate for a rescue!

Until they're looking for a lost hiker and they find a backpacker in camp :shock: For every lost person, there would probably be several "stealth" campers, kinda hard to distinguish between the two from thermal imaging. Though, maybe it would help for above treeline.
