A former Navy SEAL who worked on drones said “it’s like having a shark pen on your house.”
That’s because a new breed of underwater drones are getting a lot of attention these days.
And many are being sold in the U.S. with a price tag of as much as $1,000.
Drones are now considered by many to be more affordable than manned planes because they don’t have to rely on humans to fly, a major advantage in war zones.
And drones are flying faster, making them more effective, according to the former Navy Seal.
The unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) are more maneuverable and are also cheaper to operate than manned aircraft.
The military’s first drone was launched in the early 2000s and was the US Navy’s first unmanned surface warfare (UUW) aircraft.
Diving with drones is more fun.
“Drones have been a great way to do this for me,” the former SEAL said.
He worked as an operator for the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
“It’s great because it’s a little bit of a hobby, it’s something you do for fun, and it’s the fun part of the job.
I’m in the business of saving lives, and I think that’s the reason that we’re seeing drones, the UUVs, being used in a lot more missions than they ever were.”
In addition to drones, other hobbyists are taking drones to remote locations, such as the Amazon rain forest in South Africa.
The drones have been used to hunt and monitor the animals for signs of illegal logging, and the drones are also used for training exercises and for surveying large parts of the world, according the UAV Association, a nonprofit group for drone hobbyists.UAVs have also been used for humanitarian work, including rescues and search and rescue operations.
A drone was used to rescue people in Nepal after a landslide triggered avalanches.
A UAV was used in the rescue of a woman trapped in a truck in Thailand, and in April 2016, a UAV rescued a family of four who had been trapped in their house by the strong winds of Thailand’s Thani province.
In 2015, UAVs were used in rescue efforts after the ULA-operated Manta drone crashed while returning from a rescue mission in the Maldives.
The UAV association is also pushing for the FAA to ban hobbyists from using UAV drones to conduct commercial operations.
In a recent blog post, the group urged the FAA “to consider making it illegal for hobbyists to operate drones in the commercial market, including on airplanes, in the United States and other countries.”
The FAA has not responded to the group’s request for comment.
