Yes we have a company here in FL who sells these, I'm not aware of export restrictions; but I guess they will run into perhaps licensing issues /lawsuits. I'm fully aware this technology will rapidly expand and for sure will get the attention once there is a real conflict created by it. But knowing the CIA since "wikileaks" no longer operates, we will be kept in the dark what these things really do. I hope that sufficient expertise is available at the UN to research this develpment/issue from all sides. I wonder if you read my story about the helicopters which screen DC for "dirty" bombs with specialized equipment; actually also an infringement of privacy. They also could use drones to do that but the "payload" is still too much for the drones at present. This activety will continue for sure. Guess who pays the bill ?
