News reports of professional sports teams, media organizations and commercial enterprises engaging unmanned aerial systems to take photographs have become commonplace. Driverless cars may have once been a far-fetched idea, but now auto makers and technology developers are in the early stages of testing these autonomous vehicles for commercial use. And while military and government organizations have utilized this technology for decades, the mainstream use of unmanned systems in the civilian/commercial sector is just beginning to develop.
