I have just seen in the French press that this summer our neighbors to the north have launched a drone that will watch over the coasts of its coastline and its forests.
They are small, completely autonomous airplanes that travel following a pre-established route and that are relaying images and telemetry. The new ones drones in addition, they have the capacity to detect anomalies in the images they broadcast, hence they are considered “drones”And not miniature airplanes.
The first to use this type of drone It was the United States and they obviously did it for military purposes. Since last year in this country, this technology began to be used for the surveillance and prevention of forest fires.
The French claim to have developed at the ENAC (Ecole Nationale de Aviation Civile) in Toulouse a small drone similar to the American who will look for banks of jellyfish, oil remains floating in the sea, will warn of any anomaly that it detects and like its American counterpart, it will also carry out forest surveillance tasks when they are not flying along the French coast. The French army has also just incorporated this type of drone to its army, although with less "green" purposes than that of the ENAC (it was presented during the celebrations of July 14 of this year).
(All of this is going to further confuse UFO spotters)
I love that this type of technology is being developed and I find it super useful, although I am afraid this is moving towards the “paparazzi drones"Programmed to follow with their cameras whoever, instead of towards the"drone verdes ONG”.
Looking for images of the drone French I found this ENAC wiki created for the community of software and hardware developers to drones: http://paparazzi.enac.fr/wiki/Get_Hardware ... I fear the worst, not from this community, of course, but it is inevitable that this ends up leading to people's control.
(By the way, as a curiosity and for those who are interested, these drones work with Linux [Debian] operating system).
