With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Pilotless planes & Unmanned Cars: A move to control your movement?

Some predict that within five, 10 or 20 years, commercial jets will routinely be flown by remote control over our towns and cities.

So will we ever get used to climbing aboard our holiday flight to Cyprus or Greece and, instead of being greeted with a welcome from an upbeat and commanding captain, be met only with an automated message?

And those soothing words of reassurance in mid-air as the plane is buffeted through a nasty patch of turbulence?

They, too, could soon be a thing of the past.  | News.com.au

X-47B UAV Completes a Carrier Takeoff - Popular Mechanics
These robots grow up so fast. It was just two years ago that personnel at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md. escorted PopMech through the lab, describing how they were making the X-47B jet fighter-sized drone ready to take off and land from a carrier. Today, the unmanned naval demonstration aircraft launched from the deck of George H.W. Bush, zipped around the carrier a few times, and flew itself back to Pax River.
Pilotless planes project begins test flights over Irish Sea | Business | guardian.co.uk
BAE Systems has taken a step closer to removing pilots from fighter jets by launching the first major test flights for a new generation of intelligent drone aircraft.
The defence group is assessing software for unmanned aircraft that will operate with an unprecedented level of independence. Defence experts believe pilotless planes are the next progression from manned fighters such as the Typhoon jet, made by BAE.
The project, named Astraea, differs from the current drone models in use in Afghanistan, which are flown remotely by pilots on the ground. Instead the prototypes will follow a set of programmed instructions, with the aim that they could fly difficult missions autonomously for days at a time.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) flying in civil airspace is inevitable | Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) News | Unmanned.co.uk
Currently, unmanned aircraft in the U.S. can operate only in restricted airspace or through certificates of authorization (CoA) issued by the FAA to public agencies. A company that seeks to operate a UAS as part of a business must obtain a special airworthiness certificate-experimental category (SAC-EC). There are 285 active CoAs and 15 active SAC-ECs, according to the FAA. A proposed rulemaking governing the operation of small UAS–nominally 50 pounds or lighter–is anticipated by December, with a final rule following in mid-2013. In June, the FAA established an aviation rulemaking committee to consider larger unmanned aircraft.
