Statement of The Project
What Is Drone Proliferation?
What Is The Importance Of Adopting Innovative Military Technologies In a Country?
What Are Perceptions Of Individual Regarding Their Privacy And Safety Factor Due To The Proliferation Of Unmanned Drones?
The UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or drones become an emblematic among the 21st military technologies. The UAV was first introduced after the attack of 11th September 2001 when the government of US started experimenting with one drone which was developed for gathering intelligence. The investment of the state government has become consequential ranging from mechanized system to the military tanks. The drone proliferation can impact the politics of the world by decreasing the barriers in using the automated military defenses. This research study is critical to inform the impact of unmanned drone proliferation. The impact of this proliferation will be measured by determine the human’s perception on the safety and privacy factor. Therefore, the objectives for this research are mentioned below:
To know the importance of adopting innovative military technologies.
To determine the human perception regarding their privacy and safety due to the introduction of the unmanned drone proliferation.
H0: Proliferation impact positively in the National Airspace System.
H1: Proliferation impact negatively in the National Airspace System.
The hypothesis drawn will be tested using a define research design. The proliferation of the recent days is increasing in frequency day to day. The research will be conducted by following the descriptive research design. Descriptive design will allow us to analyses the research topic in detailed manner (Myers, Well & Lorch, 2013). We will be highly benefited using this research design as it will allow us to analyze every key areas of the research study critically.
Competition is always been a significant driver in adoption of the policy. Several researches described that multiple countries develop innovative policies or technologies to face the international aerial threats as well as to trigger attack on their respective opponents. A research study also described that adoption of UAV in the military can highly benefit the country. Firstly, the country can use UAV for striking missions. This allow the country to avoid the risks associated with the pilot (Nägeli et al., 2017). The second reason for adopting UAV in the military camp of a country is they allow the country to loiter a particular target. The target can be continuously monitored using the UAV. The proliferation of these UAVs can allow the National Airspace System to enhance the security level of the country. Moreover, the proliferation of the UAV will also allow to strengthen the military force of the country. Moreover, the UAV is a risk free technology which describes more competitive international security environment for the country. Countries which have maritime or border can exploit their enemy using this concerned military technology. The capability to strengthen the border is limited for every country. The states can lack in the innovative military technologies as they are threatened by the neighbors (Claesson et al., 2017). The proliferation of the tank in 1920s will give a define illustration on the chosen research topic.
Threats of the terrorist could motivate multiple states for developing the UAVs Governments. These frequently focuses to potential targets and violence. The capability for delivering strikes against the non-state primary actors could be attractive. Countries which face threats from the terrorist pursue with the UAVs. This results in the second interest based prediction. The state’s regime type can also shape the willingness for investing some kinds of drones (Krajewski et al. 2018). The previous research gives a mixed support to relate the military and domestic organizations. UAV can ask for both the authoritarian and democratic leaders for various reasons. The UAV can be used in several dangerous situations as they cannot put the pilot’s life at high risk. The authoritarian frequently focus on the control of their militaries to develop the military forces and troops. The autocracies are similar to the democracies by facing the internal strife as well as use the military force domestically. As UAV are operated from the command strongholds they offer direct sight for the military.
The idea of UAV in the National Airspace System raised various safety concerns for people. The functional safety of the UAV requires cyber – physical security for which the safe incorporation needs careful security analysis. The safe operation of UAV system can be defined to guarantee that the protection of system’s surroundings comprising property, people and aircraft. Therefore, for the high level perception the safe operation of UAV constitutes the hazard avoidance. Some security challenges faced by the UAVs are Spoofing of the GPS data, Spoofing UAV transmissions, manipulating captured footage, unauthorized disclosure of sensitive data from the aircraft, controlling the aircraft operations, injection of falsified sensor data, malicious software/hardware and so on (Mogili & Deepak, 2018).
This will be a significant chapter of the research study. As mentioned earlier, we will be using descriptive research design to analyze the chosen topic critically. Other two forms of the research topic will not allow us to achieve the research objectives. The effectiveness of the UAV in National Airspace System will be measured and due to this reason descriptive research design is an appropriate method that can be used in this research study.
The research study requires some data which will be used to measure the impact of UAV in National Airspace System as well as data is also required to know the human perception regarding their safety and privacy factors of using the UAV in the military. Therefore, primary data will be useful for conducting this research (Noys, 2015). The primary data will be collected in the form of a survey where 50 participants will be allowed to participate and non-probability sampling method will be used as the sampling technique. The survey process will be conducted by considering several ethical considerations.
The collected data will be analyzed by the charts and tables which will help us to conclude the research topic in a define way. The dependent variable of this research study is the human safety and privacy and it will be analyzed by measuring the safety culture of the military (Scott and Scott, 2017). The independent variable in this research is the UAV which will be analyzed by the survey where the operators will provide their views on the system.
It is to be ensured that the research will be completed within the decided time frame. The effectiveness of the UAV in the military can be of various views which could disallow us to draw a specific conclusion regarding the research topic. The considered budget can be a limitation for this research study (Galvane et al., 2017). As the research study is associated with the military some approval from the government may be required to complete the study. This can disallow us to gather more information regarding the research topic. The variance in the collected research data will also increase complexity for us to complete the study effortlessly.
