Drones are the flying robots, which are controlled by human hands, and it can be considered as a miniature of a plane. It is commonly known as drones however, it can also be called as “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle”. The process of a flight of drones can be controlled autonomously with computers or a pilot can maintain the use with a remote control. “In 2007 FAA issues a policy statement prohibiting the use of drones for commercial purposes (Gent).” Since then, the commercial use of drones has only belonged to the government or any agency that government allows. The reason behind this case is that people can use it for bad purposes such as delivering drugs, entering into illegal areas, or tracking anything that has the illegal use.

Therefore, Brian Hearing invented a drone, which has the capability of detecting drones, so for those who are using for bad purposes now will face Hearing’s invention the “Drone-Shield”. “Drone-Shield helps your security force identify unauthorized drones using real-time alerts and digital evidence collection. An enterprise-grade sensor network with our patent-pending acoustic detection technology can sense drones that are invisible to radar or that lack radio-frequency links (Drone-Shield).” As the technology grows up we will always be facing
