Annual Workshop on Intelligence and National Security
(Newport News, Va.) -
The 4th Annual Workshop on Intelligence and National Security titled “The Reapers Come Home: Unmanned Systems, Domestic Surveillance and the Constitution” will take place Jan. 28-29, 2013, on the campus of CNU, the exact location to be determined. The workshop is co-sponsored by CNU’s Center for American Studies, the Hampton Roads Chapter of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and Bosh Global Services.
Unmanned aerial systems are arguably the most important development in military surveillance since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. They are a common sight in overseas combat operations, but they are also increasingly being put to use by government agencies and businesses in U.S. airspace – and may be used in dramatically increasing numbers as surplus systems are withdrawn from overseas deployment and returned to the U.S. While these systems hold great promise for assisting in law enforcement and emergency response activities, civil libertarians and privacy advocates are raising serious questions about the implications of the domestic use of unmanned aerial vehicles.
This workshop will explore recent advances in unmanned technology and their potential use in law enforcement and disaster management operations, as well as the constitutional difficulties raised by the domestic use of these systems and potential ways to regulate these systems to protect privacy rights.
