This video by ACC Media, Lancashire, was the winning entry in a £5,000 competition “to improve the public perception of autonomous unmanned aircraft systems” in the UK.

Competition promoter ASTRAEA – Autonomous Systems Technology Related Airborne Evaluation & Assessment – is a £62m programme “to enable the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in all classes of airspace without the need for restrictive or specialised conditions of operation”. It is 50% funded by defense contractors AOS, BAE Systems, Cassidian, Cobham, QinetiQ, Rolls-Royce and Thales, and 50% by UK citizens.

Sometimes things appear on this blog which make me think: done, point made, we can all go home now. This is one of them.
