Don't they call them something else now? Remotely Piloted Vehicles or something like that?

I had a chance encounter with a guy who is at the cutting edge of Remotely Piloted Vehicles. He told me that they are developing them for all kinds of things like pipeline patrol and power line surveillance.

RPVs will fill all kinds of needs and is a growth industry.

The FAA is tap-dancing around see-and-avoid, probably due to political pressure. There is no currently installed technology which can accomplish that (other than a chase plane).

How are those clowns going to pencil-whip this? And it's only going to last until the first mid-air...

It is a name game.
The most accurate current name (at least from the FAA's view) seems to be UAS - Unmanned Aircraft System. Here is the Wiki link:
Unmanned aerial vehicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
UAS, or unmanned aircraft system, is the official United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) term for an unmanned aerial vehicle. Initially coined by the FAA in 2004 to reflect the fact that these complex systems include ground stations and other elements besides the actual aircraft, the term was first officially used by the FAA in early 2005 and subsequently adopted by DoD that same year in their Unmanned Aircraft System Roadmap 2005–2030

At nation's doorstep, police drones are flying

It seems Mexico is making a move towards using UASs in smaller law enforcement communities/roles without the regulations/laws which are causing concern in the US.
