Testing Programs for Drones Could Be Economic Opportunities for Tribes
Drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) have been big news lately, and promise to stay in the headlines for years to come. “Within 15 years, we'll look back and say this is the moment where it began,” says Jeff Anspach, Bois Forte Band of Chippewa Indians. The “it” he’s referring to is a revolution in how Americans live. Anspach heads up the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation's effort to become one of the Federal Aviation Administration's six test sites that will help put drones into national air space by 2015.
