FOX5 Vegas – KVVU

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or UAVs, could soon bring a whole new meaning to the phrase “Big Brother is watching.”

“Whenever you introduce new technology, there’s always the potential for abuse,” said Stephen McKeever, state of Oklahoma secretary of Science and Technology.

Hundreds of companies are in Las Vegas this week for the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International convention.

Many vendors are marketing their equipment to law enforcement.

“They can send up this UAV and send it out into the field instead of chasing a fugitive. Or they can have it up over a house to watch where they might not be able to see what’s going on at all times,” said William Robinson, director of Sales and Marketing for Adaptive Flight.
