The Drone War 1114 박소윤

*Drone: A pilotless radio-controlled aircraft used for military purposes, delivery services, etc.

 

These days, the world drone market has been growing by an annual average of 35% and is expected to show high levels of growth for the time being. But the drone market isn’t being activated in Korea because Korea is a divided nation, and a hasty activation of drone market might cause security issues.

 

However, many people say that Korea should relax regulations and start to establish plans for drone development. Not only drones can be used for military purposes, but also can be used in agriculture, delivery services, weather research and filming of media companies. They can also be used to provide disaster relief and explore areas that human can’t reach. But there is bound to be a problem if the drone market gets activated without clear regulations. An indiscreet usage of drones might cause serious invasion of privacy and lead to various accidents and crimes.
Because drones are flying objects that can be piloted easily, anyone can use them to secretly film videos of other people and upload to the internet. There is a high chance of drones and other aircrafts crashing into each other, and drones with dying batteries might fall mid-air and lead to serious injuries. Drones also might crash into electricity cables and cause problems. For more detailed examples, a woman spotted a drone with a video camera attached to it hovering outside the window of her 26th floor apartment while getting dressed in Seattle. Hundreds of residents in West Hollywood were left without power for several hours after a drone crashed into electricity cables. There was an accident that a toddler ‘s eye got destroyed by a drone propeller in Worcestershire, UK. In one prison in Mansfield, Ohio, there was a case that a few prisoners received a pack of drugs attached to a drone, and the same incident happened in Manchester. Accidents and crimes like these rise as drones become more widespread.
To develop drone market in Korea, the government should set up directions of development and precise regulations first because indiscreet vitalization of drones might lead to new kinds of problems. Systems like drone insurance system and safety certification system should be introduced, and the government should classify drones according to their function and purpose and manage them.
