Default Six drone protesters are to stand trial for damaging a fence

Reaper aircraft began to be operated from control stations at RAF Waddington, Lincolnshire, earlier this year.

While the pilots are based in Lincolnshire the aircraft are based at Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan.

UK Reaper aircraft carry laser-guided Hellfire missiles and laser-guided GBU-12 bombs.

Default Hacker pilots a drone with Google Glass using just his head movements

Quote:
A developer has created code that makes it possible for Google Glass wearers to pilot drones using the slightest of head movements.

Blaine Bublitz, from coding company, IcedDev developed the app for an annual event called Nodebots Day, which is for fans of robots controlled by a JavaScript program called node.js.

He developed the code to work with wheeled robots moving back and forth before adapting it to add right and left movements, as well as up and down, specifically to be used with a NodeCopter.



Blaine Bublitz, pictured right, is shown flying the NodeCopter, seen in the bottom left-hand corner, using his Google Glass device. Bublitz used JavaScript to create the code that responds to his head movements to make the drone move left or right

BEER DRONE WILL DELIVER DRINKS TO FESTIVAL GOERS FROM ABOVE

Festival-goers in South Africa this summer will be able to order beer from their smartphones and have it delivered by a flying drone dropping a can attached to a parachute.

The drone has been developed by Darkwing Aerials and was tested at the Oppikoppi music festival in the Limpopo province of South Africa this August.

Customers will be able to place their drink orders through an iOS app that will send their GPS coordinates to the drone operators.

On his blog, Bublitz explained that he began by creating code that controlled wheeled robots on a table top, before adding left and right steering using a palm-controlled device.

However, he couldn't see what he was looking at as he moved his head so wanted to control a robot that could be steered and seen from at least eye height.

During a video demonstration, Bublitz, from Phoenix, explained that he developed the code using the Face app that was unveiled during a talk at the event in Portland.

The app can send sensor information -- the data needed to fly the drone that is usually sent to the device using a joystick or remote control - to a web server which then rebroadcasts it.

This new broadcast can then be picked up and used by the Google Glass headset.

In the video Bublitz adds that he's used pitch and roll movements but could also add a rotation option.


Landing and take off was controlled using an A and B button on the Google Glass.

He said: 'With JavaScript, we are able to write a relatively small amount of code that can serve as a basis for swappable hardware components.

'Turns out that I was driving the drone at full speed in each direction I tilted my head.

'I should have had the speed at about 0.3 instead of 1. Lesson learned.
Bublitz developed the app for an annual event called Nodebots Day, which is for fans of robots controlled by a JavaScript program called node.js.

'I would have also liked to add the ability to rotate the drone left and right based on the Glass' azimuth value, but I guess that will have to be in the future.'

Bublitz has now put the coding details on his blog to make it possible for other developers to adapt their Google Glass devices to be able to control NodeCopters.

In May, a Jetstream aircraft has become the first to fly 'unmanned' across UK shared airspace.

The pioneering flight, largely controlled by a pilot on the ground, took off from Warton, near Preston in Lancashire, and landed in Inverness.

Described as 'a new chapter in aviation history,' it could pave the way for passenger planes controlled from the ground by 'drone' operators.

Arrow A DIY UAV That Hacks Wi-Fi Networks, Cracks Passwords, and Poses as a Cell Phone Tower


Posted 07.29.2011 at 9:57 am

Last year at the Black Hat and Defcon security conferences in Las Vegas, a former Air Force cyber security contractor and a former Air Force engineering systems consultant displayed their 14-pound, six-foot-long unmanned aerial vehicle, WASP (Wireless Aerial Surveillance Platform). Last year it was a work in progress, but next week when they unveil an updated WASP they’ll be showing off a functioning homemade spy drone that can sniff out Wi-Fi networks, autonomously crack passwords, and even eavesdrop on your cell phone calls by posing as a cell tower.

WASP is built from a retired Army target drone, and creators Mike Tassey and Richard Perkins have crammed all kinds of technology aboard, including an HD camera, a small Linux computer packed with a 340-million-word dictionary for brute-forcing passwords as well as other network hacking implements, and eleven different antennae. Oh, and it’s autonomous; it requires human guidance for takeoff and landing, but once airborne WASP can fly a pre-set route, looping around an area looking for poorly defended data.

And on top of that, the duo has taught their WASP a new way to surreptitiously gather intel from the ground: pose as a GSM cell phone tower to trick phones into connecting through WASP rather than their carriers--a trick Tassey and Perkins learned from another security hacker at Defcon last year.

Tassey and Perkins say they built WASP so show just how easy it is, and just how vulnerable you are. “We wanted to bring to light how far the consumer industry has progressed, to the point where public has access to technologies that put companies, and even governments at risk from this new threat vector that they’re not aware of,” Perkins told Forbes.

Default Defence secretary: selling weapons abroad is priority for Britain

Quote:
Philip Hammond praises 'fabulous' arms trade fair in London



Selling weapons abroad is a top priority for the government, Philip Hammond, the UK defence secretary, made clear on Tuesday, praising what he called a "fabulous show" displaying "fantastic kit".

It was the opening day of London Docklands' biennial arms bazaar, the biggest so far with 40 countries, including Russia and Israel, having their own national pavilions, and as many as 1,500 companies offering their wares.

Official guests at the arms show include the governments of Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya – countries that need to build up their armed forces after recent conflicts in which Britain has played its part – as well as such traditional arms trade allies as Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Qatar and Algeria, two potentially lucrative markets and relatively new allies in the fight against jihadist extremism, have also been invited as official guests.

Hammond said that later this week he would chair a new "cross-Whitehall" committee on weapons exports. "We are not ashamed of promoting responsible defence exports," he added.

In a speech to an audience consisting largely of arms company executives, he seized the opportunity to bash the European commission in Brussels for proposing a common EU approach to weapons sales, a move he said he believed would stifle competition.

He praised arms companies for building clusters around universities. Their future lay in high-tech, heavily academic-linked, industrial technology, not in "high-volume metal bashing", he said.

Compared with previous years many more of the exhibitors in the huge ExCel centre are smaller, niche, high-tech companies. Yet in terms of floor space they are still dwarfed by such giants as Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and Raytheon (maker of Tomahawk cruise missiles, which would have been launched against Syrian targets had not politics intervened).

Another exhibitor with a strong presence is Elbit, the Israeli specialist in unmanned aerial vehicles or drones, and a joint venture partner, with Thales, in the Watchkeeper unmanned air system being developed for British forces.

A guide to unmanned vehicles, made available on Monday, had more than 300 pages with illustrations of about 1,000 different types of drone.

This year a security and special forces zone has been set up at ExCel, consisting mainly of companies offering kit for the fast-developing private security market, an outlet growing as fast as that for drones. Kit for sale includes a necktie with a hidden camera as well as equipment designed to protect communications from cyber-attacks.

Close to stands showing off modern lethal weapons is the medical and disaster relief zone. "They do the damage, then they come to us for help" is the refrain among exhibitors there.

Exhibitors include Amputees In Action, which advises and helps to train British troops. They act as a consultancy for emergency services as well the armed forces, and also provide amputee actors and stunt artists for the film and television industries. AIA proudly describes itself as the BBC's "preferred agent".

After the first of the 30,000 expected visitors completed their security checks, as tough as any at an airport (Campaign Against the Arms Trade has been demonstrating), Sir George Zambellas, the new first sea lord and head of the Royal Navy, gave a rousing speech as if to give a raison d'être, at least for the show's big hitters.

In an unashamed defence of his own service, and the Trident nuclear missile system, Zambellas said that by the beginning of the coming decade the navy would account for nearly half of Britain's entire defence procurement programme.

He added that Britain might be a small island, referring to the put-down made by one of Vladimir Putin's officials at the recent G20 meeting in Saint Petersburg, but the nation would have a "big footprint across the world".

The navy's two new large aircraft carriers – a project that was recently damned by MPs as a huge technical and commercial risk – would become national icons, he said.

Torture equipment has been found on sale at Britain’s leading international arms fair in London, prompting calls for the event to be terminated.


Two companies exhibiting military-use products at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) show, were evicted from the ExCeL centre in London’s Docklands on Wednesday after human rights campaigners discovered they were selling leg irons and electric batons.

The organizers of DSEI have been criticized as they delayed authoritative action until Green Party MP Caroline Lucas lobbied the British government over the illegal nature of equipment on show by French firm MagForce International and Chinese company Tian Jin MyWay International Trading.

“‘It’s frankly disgusting that items like this are being promoted at a supposedly legitimate trade event in Britain,” Lucas said.

“Time and again the organizers of the fair have shown they cannot guarantee exhibitors will remain within the law. The government is supposed to regulate this event and has shown startling complacency,” she added.

Peace activists and human rights campaigners have held demonstrations in front of the ExCeL centre since September 8 and intend to continue the ‘die-in’ protest until the exhibition ends on Friday or is shut down.

Activists say the DSEI show represents companies supplying weapons to some of the world’s most oppressive regimes.

Two companies have been ejected from a UK arms fair for promoting illegal weapons, after an MP raised the issue.

A spokesman for the DSEI event in London's Docklands said they were French firm Magforce International and Chinese company Tianjin Myway.

Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said the companies were promoting handheld projectile electric shock weapons, weighted leg cuffs and stun batons.

Organisers said HM Revenue and Customs enforced the law at the event.

A spokesman said the two companies were "found with literature in breach of British law".
'Enormously worrying'

Ms Lucas, who raised the issue in the House of Commons, said: "I am very pleased that they have been ejected but I think it is enormously worrying that it takes a question in Parliament to make DSEI do their jobs properly.

"One can have no confidence that the policy on selling illegal weapons is being upheld properly at all."

Organisers said the stands of the businesses involved were immediately shut down and their staff ejected from the event.

A spokesman said: "This action highlights our commitment to ensuring that all equipment, services, promotional material, documentation and anything else on display... complies with domestic and international law.

"Enforcing the law at DSEI is the responsibility of HMRC who have teams on site throughout the show for this purpose.

"The literature in question has been confiscated and passed to HMRC for further investigation. DSEI's compliance team is also looking into the matter further."

Magforce International and Tianjin Myway have not yet commented

The British Ministry of Defense is to set new restrictions aimed at tightening the security of US military facilities believed to be carrying out spying and drone activities from inside the UK.

Under the new restrictions, 20 activities, including camping “in tents, caravans, trees or otherwise,” digging, engaging in “any trade or business” or grazing any animal in outer “controlled areas” surrounding the US military sites will be illegal.

Also, 10 activities are banned in the inner “protected areas.” These activities include a ban on taking “any visual image of any person or thing.”

The regulations are to be imposed at a number of US facilities, including the Royal Air Force Croughton. According to the Independent, the RAF Croughton has been used to send back data to the US from a global network of spy bases in its embassies and as a center for Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent communications.

The airbase is also thought to be a support site for US drone strikes against Yemen.

The review on the existing bylaws on US military sites and the new security measures come as Britain denies Washington’s drone-related activities at the RAF Croughton.


Activists say the UK is helping Washington cover up its illegal activities by implementing the new rules.

“These by-laws have been designed to prevent any transparency about what activities take place at RAF Croughton and Barford St John. There is strong evidence that Croughton plays a role in the US drone campaign,” human rights group Reprieve’s Jennifer Gibson said.

“But instead of coming clean with the public, the Ministry of Defense has decided to help the US further by drafting draconian by-laws that give the military the power to arrest dog walkers who stray in the general vicinity of the base. It must be asked what is going on at RAF Croughton and elsewhere and why is the UK helping the US cover it up?” she added

Press TV is having a real dronefest today:

Quote:
A London-based human rights campaign group has called on the British government to come clean on its policy regarding deadly drone strikes overseas.

In a letter to British Foreign Secretary William Hague, legal charity Reprieve urged the government to publish its assessment of the number of civilians killed in the drone attacks across the globe.

The UK ambassador to Washington, Peter Westmacott, has said the US should buy British-made “Brimstone” missiles for use on its Reaper drones.

In an article written last week for the Defense One website, the senior diplomat also noted that the US military had just finished testing the missiles.

Reprieve executive director Clare Algar, however, warned of “an alarming prospect” of supplying the missiles for use in strikes by the United States.

“The Reaper… is best known for its use by the CIA and other secretive US agencies in carrying out covert strikes in Yemen and Pakistan. Such strikes are in violation of international law, and known to have killed large numbers of civilians outside of declared war zones,” Algar wrote.

A report by the Sunday People newspaper revealed in January that Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has spent £4 billion ($6.5 billion) to amass a force of 657 military drones.

The fleet includes ten MQ-9 Reaper drones, some 324 Black Hornet Nano micro-helicopters, 222 Desert Hawk UAVs, 63 Watchkeeper drones, 30 Tarantula Hawks, and eight ScanEagles.

Quote:
Britain and France are set to cooperate in developing a new generation of lethal drones expected to be used in the countries’ militaries.

According to reports, French President Francois Hollande and British Prime Minister David Cameron plan to sign a memorandum of understanding to build an Anglo-French Predator-type military drone.

The two sides will meet on Friday for a summit at Royal Air Force (RAF) Brize Norton, an airbase located near Oxford in southern England.

Britain's top arms producer BAE Systems and the French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation will be working on the drone project.

The 500-million-euro contract is also reported to be including provisions for developing anti-ship missiles for French and British attack helicopters and underwater mine detectors.

In an earlier agreement in 2010, the two European countries agreed to share aircraft carriers and joint expeditionary forces.

A report by The Sunday People recently revealed that Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has spent £4 billion ($6.5 billion) to amass a force of 657 military drones despite the controversy over the secrecy of its deadly drone strikes overseas.

The fleet includes 10 MQ-9 Reaper drones, some 324 Black Hornet Nano micro-helicopters, 222 Desert Hawk UAVs, 63 Watchkeeper drones, 30 Tarantula Hawks, and 8 ScanEagles.

British campaigners have censured the UK and US militaries for carrying out non-transparent drone attacks in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

The condemnation came after the British Ministry of Defense (MoD) revealed for the first time that UK military pilots have been launching missile in “conflict zones” using unmanned US aircraft.

The revelation was made last week, nine months after Drone Wars UK, a website monitoring and inspecting the British use of unmanned technologies, submitted a freedom of information request to the MoD.

It received figures showing British pilots have launched at least 39 missile strikes against suspected militants from US military drones based in Afghanistan.

This came as the MoD had been insisting that British drone pilots always operate under UK rules of engagement.

According to figures, US Reaper and Predator drones have been operated by British pilots in Afghanistan on 2,150 occasions between 2006 and 2012 – an average of almost once a day. The figures do not include the thousands of missions British troops have flown with their own fleet of 10 Reaper aircraft.

Latest figures show 94 Hellfire missiles have been fired by Royal Air Force (RAF) drones in Afghanistan in 2013. This brings to 457 the total number of munitions and bombs fired by British unmanned systems since 2008.

"This latest revelation once again demonstrates the secrecy surrounding the use of armed drones and once again underlines the need for increased scrutiny and greater transparency about their use,” said the website's creator, Chris Cole.

"The nature of drone technology means they are being used with little or no public accountability. Unless we act now to curb this new weaponry it seems inevitable that drones will increasingly be used to launch secret and unaccountable military attacks leading to global instability and increased insecurity," Cole added.

Heather Barr of Human Rights Watch added, "One of the problems with drone programs from the beginning has been a near-total lack of transparency about the scale of the programs, where they were operating, what their goals are, and who they are targeting and how. If it is now not even possible to know which country has its finger on the button, that adds yet another layer of confusion which will make accountability even more elusive."

Washington uses assassination drones in several countries -- including Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen -- to target what it calls militants. According to witnesses, however, the attacks have mostly led to civilian casualties.

In October last year, a joint report by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch said US officials could be found guilty of war crimes for the secret CIA drone attacks which have killed hundreds of people.

Quote:
Britain’s Court of Appeal has blocked a legal challenge against the British government over assisting secret US drone attacks in Pakistan by passing on information to the CIA.

Noor Khan, whose father was killed in a US drone strike in northwestern Pakistani tribal regions in March 2011, was told by London’s Court of Appeal on Monday that he could not continue his legal battle as it could require a UK court to pass judgment on the US affairs.

Lawyers from Britain’s Foreign Office had told the judges that considering the issue by a British court and a possibility of a ruling in favor of Khan could damage relations between the UK and US.

“[A] finding by our court that the notional UK operator of a drone bomb which caused a death was guilty of murder would inevitably be understood… by the US as a condemnation of the US,” the lawyers argued.

In December 2012, the High Court also ruled against Khan, who argued that the UK spy agency GCHQ had assisted the murder by providing “locational” intelligence to the CIA.

Khan said he is still determined to “get answers from the British government” about their involvement in his father’s death.

“I used to think that Britain stood for justice, but now it seems as though the government has put itself above the law.”

Human rights charity Reprieve, which is supporting Khan, also described the court ruling as “shameful,” saying the risk of embarrassing the United States has trumped British justice in Khan’s case.

“It now appears that the UK government can get away with murder, provided it is committed alongside an ally who may be sensitive to public criticism,” said a spokesperson for the charity.

UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counterterrorism Ben Emmerson said in October that data from the Pakistani government show that at least 2,200 people have been killed in Pakistan by US drone attacks since 2004.

As stated in a previous post drones in the UK are nothing new.
The police had one flying over the bnp red white and blue festival the year kevin bryan was caught stalking a mentally retarded girl that he proudly stated he went on to have a two and a half year sexual relationship with.
Im sure the footage would be amusing.

Post France and Britain see increased illegal mini-drone flights over power stations



Britain’s nuclear power plants could come under attack by DRONES which drop explosives, says expert

UK nuclear expert John Large probes issue after spate of flights in France

15 illegal flights by tiny unmanned vehicles over country’s power stations

UK has 16 operational nuclear reactors generating 18% of our electricity

Existing plants ‘not prepared to counter threat of near-cyborg technology’

Mr Large cites examples of placing explosives and dropping equipment

By Mark Duell

Published: 09:54, 21 December 2014 |

Britain’s nuclear power stations are under threat from attacks by drones, it has been claimed.

A London-based nuclear expert investigated the issue after a spate of mysterious and illegal flights by small unmanned vehicles over more than a dozen power stations in France.

And John Large warned that the problems arising there were of equal importance across the English Channel, where the UK has 16 operational reactors generating 18 per cent of our electricity.

Up above: Britain’s nuclear power stations are under threat from attacks by drones (file picture), it is claimed

Mr Large told the French parliament that existing plants were not prepared to counter the threat of ‘near-cyborg technology’, such as placing explosives and dropping equipment to help a saboteur.

He examined four attack situations, saying the plants ‘fared very badly indeed – if these scenarios had been for real, then there would have been the potential for a major radioactive release’.

British officials have studied Mr Large’s evidence and handed it to the Office for Nuclear Regulation, but have not asked for a copy of the report – however, the expert has urged them to reconsider this.

According to an article by Independent on Sunday journalist Mark Leftly, Mr Large will meet with the Ministry of Defence and France’s nuclear and safety regulators next month regarding his report.

Energy Secretary Ed Davey told the newspaper that he ‘would like to see’ the report, although stressed it was ‘unlikely’ that it would tell ministers anything they had not already examined.

Incident scene: Three people were arrested last month near the Belleville-sur-Loire reactor (pictured) in Cher, south of Paris, after using remote-controlled vehicles in a restricted area within 650ft of the plant.

It was revealed early last month that authorities in France had tallied at least 15 overflights of nuclear sites since October, culminating on one day with five at separate sites.

Drone attack threat: London-based nuclear expert John Large (pictured) has investigated the issue.

Authorities insist that nuclear facilities in France – a country that largely lives off atomic energy – are built to handle seismic and security risks.

State-controlled power firm EDF, which has had 13 sites flown over by drones, said the overflights had not affected plant operations.

Three people were arrested last month near the Belleville-sur-Loire reactor in Cher, south of Paris, after using remote-controlled vehicles in a restricted area within 650ft of the plant.

But they were released when it emerged they were model aircraft fans in the wrong location.

Drones have vaulted into public awareness in recent years, ranging from ones as large as planes used by the CIA to bomb terrorist suspects, to small ones bought for fun.

Greenpeace has in recent years led peaceful incursions into French nuclear facilities to expose security vulnerabilities, but it denies any connection to the drone flights.

French law prohibits individuals from operating drones in crowded areas, near airports, and near sensitive sites like military bases or nuclear plants. Concerns about nuclear plant security were revived most recently after the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan.

France gets more than two-thirds of its electricity from nuclear power – the highest proportion in the world – and stepped up nuclear security measures after the Japan debacle.

CONCERNS OVER MUST-HAVE CHRISTMAS GIFT CAUSING DISASTER IN SKIES

There are fears that this year’s must-have Christmas gift could cause a disaster in Britain’s skies.

Warnings have been issued over the dangers posed to passenger planes by recreational drones flown by amateurs, with models as cheap as £35 being snapped up before December 25.

Sales have risen rapidly – around 2,000 a month are being bought – and electronics retailer Maplin said they are one of its biggest sellers. The most sophisticated designs cost up to £3,000.

They can include cameras and are usually used for recreational purposes – although increasingly they are being considered for commercial uses, such as carrying deliveries and monitoring crops.

Earlier this month the Mail reported how a remote-controlled drone flying near London Heathrow Almost crashed into a passenger jet – and was spotted by the airliner’s pilot rather than radars.

It was the first near miss between a passenger jet and an unmanned aircraft at Britain’s biggest airport, but also the latest in a series of incidents involving unmanned planes.

In May, the pilot of a 74-seat plane reported that a quadcopter drone flew within 80ft as he was approaching London Southend Airport.

And in December 2012 the crew of a Boeing 777 coming in to land at London Gatwick Airport said they saw ‘two white or silver discs’.

In April this year, the owner of a remote-controlled plane was ordered to pay £4,340 in fines and costs after his machine crashed in a no-fly zone near a shipyard in Cumbria for defence company BAE Systems, where nuclear submarines were being built.

The British Airline Pilots Association (Balpa) has demanded better protection for the public against the risk of drones.

There are currently few rules on operating drones. But Balpa wants them to meet the same safety standards as piloted aircraft, including only being flown by operators with pilot-equivalent training.

In October, intelligence experts warned of the misuse of drones and called for ‘urgent’ measures to safeguard

Here we go with the conspiracy lot again.
The conspiracy sites are all buzzing with the news that a KKK leader was recruited by the FBI with the express order for the assassination of the white nationalist god Kevin brYan.
Confidential documents released by a rogue FBI agent revealed a Muslim murder plot was an elaborate cover story after the FBI feared they would be taken out by Kev the Commander brYans army of devout worshipers.

The assassination attempt failed after the death ray carrying drone crew of five had spent almost 2 years and millions of dollars on the biggest joint American British and French joint intelligence operation since the creation of Captain Joe Owen's ladybird book.
Military intelligence feared with Kevin BrYan at the helm of international white nationalism Europe would be a unified one nation state under national socialism within weeks.


Lockheed Martin are now understood to be working on a new death ray laser beam with the capabilities of penetrating massively obese targets.

United States Congress will make a statement imminently.
