Why We Need Counter-Drone Tech Now More Than Ever

528 ratings | 28757 views
By 2022 the FAA expects we’ll have 2.9 million drones flying in the U.S. With so many drones in the sky it’s inevitable that sometimes things will go wrong. Counter-drone companies like Dedrone and Fortem are offering a solution by developing technologies to detect and intercept unwanted drones. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

What level of regulation is appropriate for drones? Should regulation be handled privately or publicly?

They just need to have registration and better regulation with the help of governments, and require licences before buying

The biggest issue is educating drone pilots to fly responsibly. When you have 2.8 million registered drone users, very few of those remote pilots actually have certification from the FAA (Part 107) which includes basic piloting skills necessary to navigate US air space. There were only 100,000 Part 107 certified pilots in late 2018. I do not anticipate that number rising dramatically as classes to pass the Part 107 are usually anywhere between 300-1000 depending on where and class type (online, physical). Most of these drones are flown as "hobby" aircraft. So they do not need to pass any sort of training or certification/test. They only need to abide by the basic rules the FAA applied to them (400m max height, line of sight, air space restrictions). The introduction of drones has radically changed cinematography in ways never seen before. We can now reliably get cheap overhead footage even with some of the best cameras in the world, helicopter cinematographers hate us because they are losing jobs left and right to drone pilots. Why should a news agency pay a pilot thousands per session when they can simply train an employee to fly one of these aircraft (which are stupidly easy to use, they basically fly themselves now)? Why would a filming company pay hundreds of thousands for expensive aircraft when a drone can still get the high speed shots no problem? Many drones are capable of 45-60+ MPH now, especially industrial drones used for cinematography. What needs to happen is that ALL remote pilots should be required to pass the Part 107 test before flying. And stores should not be allowed to see micro drones over the counter. Ever seen what happens when a GEnx engine intakes a small drone? Now imagine what would happen of an untrained and incompetent pilot flew too close to an airport and didn't realize he was violating air space and not communicating with tower? Drones are just as dangerous in the air as a vehicle speeding on the freeway is, if not more so.

Airports should probably employ small AA batteries, to be able to take down anything in restricted airspace, Stadiums and concerts should probably employ at least one drone of their own to capture anything overhead. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a drone, is honestly probably a good guy with a drone. Welcome to the future.

The nation of Liechtenstein is ruled by the Royal House of Liechtenstein and they own the private banking group called LGT Group or Liechtenstein Global Trust with Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein as the CEO and President. Prince Philipp of Liechtenstein is a board member for LGT and previously worked for Banque Rothschild in Paris. The Liechtenstein royal family owns the bank through Prince of Liechtenstein Foundation. In 2008 this bank was investigated for enabling tax evasion by various governments. Prince Mario Chigi of Rome was investigated for tax evasion involving millions and using private banks in Liechtenstein. LGT provides private banking, asset management, and Venture Philanthropy which is used for financing criminals that use fake start up companies. LGT is an international bank with branches in Switzerland where banking is also private. The Liechtenstein family are closely allied with the House of Habsburg which authorized the principality of Liechtenstein. The royal family also hold the title of Counts of Rietberg in Germany. The family owns about a dozen palaces. They are extremely wealthy, involved in private international banking, and run their own nation as a constitutional monarchy. The monarch has the power to veto laws and issue laws including the constitution. The family has married in with various Holy Roman royalty and nobility including the Habsburg, Esterhazy, Thun-Hohenstein, Harrach, Oettingen-Spielberg, Lobkowicz, Nassau-Weilburg, and Wittelsbach families. The Wettin coat of arms is also on the House of Liechtenstein's coat of arms suggesting a Wettin or Saxe origin. The House of Lie-chtenstein specialize in financing liars. The word govern-ment refers to control mind and spreading lies is one way they control society. They are a major bank roll for shills. They spread Nazi propaganda, they spread malicious lies and slander about people who expose them or their allies, and spread lies like fake news stories to deflect away from them. They are sadistic and ruthless liars and involved with pedophilia and human sacrifice. The majority of the royal and noble bloodlines are involved with human trafficking, pedophilia, and human sacrifice. This is why they want to control everything and why they use ruthless, murderous, and torturous methods to obtain control. Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein is the CEO of LGT and he began his banking career working for Chase Capital Partners in New York City. The royal and noble families seem like they have free access in the United States as if they are dual citizens. Hundreds of European princes have residences, businesses, and employment in the United States. They often make banking and business connections in the United States so they can more easily finance and direct the criminal takeover agenda being attempted by the European royalty and nobility. The House of Liechtenstein is Roman Catholic and they are subordinate to the Roman Catholic House of Habsburg which they are frequently knighted under. Prince Hans Adam II is the head of state and head of the family with his son Prince Alois next in line to the throne. Prince Alois is also a Roman Knight of Malta. The American billionaire David Lichtenstein is a covert relative of this family and an agent for them in the United States. David Lichtenstein owns The Lightstone Group based in New York which is a real estate investment company involved in residential, commercial, industrial, and hotel properties. David Lichtenstein owns tens of thousands of people's homes in the United States. That is corporate feudalism. David Lichtenstein is a board member for the New York City's Economic Development Corporation and he is also a member of the Brookings Institution an economic think tank in Washington DC. Members of the House of Liechtenstein include Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein, Princess Marie of Liechtenstein, Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein, Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein, Princess Nora of Liechtenstein, Prince Philip Erasmus of Liechtenstein, Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein, Prince Rudolf Ferdinand of Liechtenstein, Prince Alexander Wilhelm Hans Adam of Liechtenstein, Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein, Princess Angela of Liechtenstein, Prince Alois of Liechtenstein, Prince Constantin of Liechtenstein, Princess Tatjana of Liechtenstein, Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein, Prince Joseph Wenzel of Liechtenstein. https://www.fuerstenhaus.li/en/princely-house/ The House Law of the Princely House of Liechtenstein https://www.lgt.com/en/about-us/company-profile/organizational-structure/ LGT has been privately owned by the Princely Family of Liechtenstein for over 80 years and therefore has efficient management and organizational structures. This allows us to make decisions quickly and independently, and to establish a long-term corporate strategy. https://www.lgt.com/shared/.content/publikationen/$verwaltung_publikationen/cv/cv_s_d_prinz_philipp_von_und_zu_liechtenstein_en.pdf H.S.H.

According to the investigators, to divert the gains earned in Italy, and circumvent the chain of fiscal controls, the Chigi, "fictitiously residing" in Bulgaria, had set up two hoffshore companies in Liechtenstein. https://www.forbes.com/sites/chloesorvino/2016/03/23/how-real-estate-billionaire-david-lichtenstein-bounced-back-from-a-7-5-billion-hotel-bankruptcy/#13aab54e6403 David Lichtenstein, the founder of real estate developer Lightstone Group.

Drones need to be highly registered and regulated technology.

hbarudi (1 month ago)
Wish more people can simply keep a distance between the small flying things and the large human carrying flying things. Airports are the only place where small flying things are a problem especially if they cause more damage to an aircraft than the small flying thing itself is worth and aircraft needing costly service every time it lands to a gate and if hit upon takeoff, the flight safety as a whole is in danger of taking damage and need a costly diversion. Also fly those things in open areas and avoid going over other people's houses.

The fear from drones is overrated. It doesn't do anything a terrorists can't do himself, same with military drones, jets can do the job.
Robert Evans (1 month ago)
"It's public knowledge that drones are dangerous." This is another way of saying that people are scared of the unknown and that there are no facts to substantiate that fear. There are far more bird strikes than drone strikes by an infinite multiple because there are no known drone strikes and thousands of bird strikes. This whole video is just fearmongering by people who know nothing about aviation or drones. I am a commercial multi-engine commercial pilot and a model radio control plane enthusiast. I know both sides of the issue.

For an average citizen we already have defense against drones, It's called a gun. Drones are simply target practice.

A simple, fast flying, RC airplane (40-year-old tech) could get around all of this.

I think if a drone is flying over your property you should have the right to shoot them down
Withered Perception (1 month ago)
You don't own the air space! I dare you to shoot down my drone. My drones have a registered tail number and are all part 107 compliant. Which means you shoot down my drone you shoot down a registered fedral aircraft and you are in for domestic federal terrorism charges! Be my guest! I'll just buy another drone, but Your life is gone!

Soon terrorist will use drone to bring down airplane. They need to build anti drone missiles, any drone nearby will be shoot down without any warning.

+uNr3al111 Planes will just have to evolve. This is not a new problem, it is the same problem with birds. Engineers need to come up with a way to prevent stuff from clogging and breaking the engines. Design a different engine maybe?
uNr3al111 (1 month ago)
Were you thinking when you proposed the idea? A missile? First of all, a missile will be way bigger than a drone. Second, what if you miss the target. Drones don't go that high and are most likely next to an infrastructure. If that missile misses its target, it will crash into something and cause more damage. Third, even if it hits the drove, it will create an explosion. Humans don't like that. Public will freak out. Fourth, a missile technology is way more expensive than a drone.

Shooting bullets into the air is very dangerous and mostly illegal because If you miss the drone the bullet could fall to earth hitting someone, injuring them or even killing someone.
Bashir Khan (1 month ago)
+Big Steve you can't just shoot near airports, the danger is missing and hitting a jet on approach or something far worse than a drone.
Big Steve (1 month ago)
+William Flores yes but if they are flying close to airplanes putting people's lives in danger then they should be shot down
William Flores (1 month ago)
Shooting down a drone is illegal even if it’s on your property which is so dumb.we should be able to shoot them down if they are over our property

I predicted how much of a serious problem they’d be 6 years ago & everyone thought I was so off. Bro, we’ve only just seen the beginning of how bad this is going to get with them. THEY ARE A PROBLEM & EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, THEY WILL ONLY BE USED A WEAPONS FOR CASUAL CIVILIANS IN THE FUTURE & NOTHING ELSE.

name one drone incident in the US where someone was hurt.
ElectricDragonFilms (1 month ago)
Seriously? You think people will just use drones go be weapons? Did you miss the entire first part of this video saying how useful drones are with aerial photgraphy, science, etc.? Mate, if drones are such a terror, maybe we should ban guns for civilians as well, eh? I mean, guns have let mass shootings and school shootings to happen. Drones have sometimes crashed into people (rarely, and the pilots were idiots) and have caused the occasional "breach of privacy" issue when it was only a misunderstanding. Yes, let's ban this minor inconvenience instead of the thing that has cost the lives of dozens of innocent people.
