Watching CSPAN Drone Committee Hearing

Asst. Professor Todd Humphreys, from the Radionavigation Lab at the University of Texas-Austin, is testifying. He’s the guy who ran the wifi test-spoofing of a UAV. He’s a very interesting testifier, and the House representatives seem to enjoy him and to be asking good questions. He is also supporting innovation, and pointing out that there are a lot of peaceful uses for drones. “Saving money” and “jobs” are being mentioned a lot by him. Heh.

It’s the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations and Management.

UPDATE: The testimony show ended at 10:55 AM (EDT). A lot of this stuff airs again.

UPDATE: Televising of the hearing started up again at 10:57 AM. So maybe this really is live coverage. They’ve got some testimony about Montgomery County, Texas, use of civilian drones from the sheriff there. This should be interesting.
