The price of a drone is dropping, and with it, the cost of a lot of work.
The drones are coming in at under $5,000 to $7,000, according to the latest estimates from The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO).
The GAO released its latest report Tuesday morning, and it found that the number of U.A.E. drones has dropped from nearly 20,000 in 2016 to fewer than 10,000 today.
The drone industry is a tough sell, especially with the price of drones hovering around $1,000.
However, with the U.K. government announcing a new law that would make drone manufacturers liable for drone strikes, drones will finally start to trickle into the U, A.G.A.’s report notes.
It also found that drone manufacturers will likely continue to ramp up production for the coming year, with an expected surge in deliveries in 2017.
The GAZA report notes that the FAA has already approved two new drones, the Inspiration and Phantom, which are expected to reach production by the end of 2019.
The report also notes that U.N. agencies have been slow to get on board with drone regulation, but that a new set of rules from the U: United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is expected to be released later this year.
The U: UNODC report notes the government’s recent push to expand drone regulation and says it will be looking to the UN for guidance on drone rules.
The government has also said it wants to allow the private sector to use drones for humanitarian purposes, though it is still unclear whether it would have the legal authority to do so.
The latest U:UNODCP report says the U.: UNODCP has made “significant progress” in its review of drone regulations, and is considering the issue of civilian oversight, as well as whether to require a court order before the government can deploy a drone.
In a separate report, the U-M Report, a think tank at the University of Michigan, also says drone regulation is moving forward.
U:M Report Director Matthew B. Brown, who also chairs the UAM: UNO: United Nation’s Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, told Newsweek the U.-M Report has identified three key areas of concern.
First, he said, drone strikes are becoming increasingly targeted and often occur at night.
Second, he says, the number and type of weapons used by U.s. drone operators are becoming more sophisticated.
And third, he argues, drone operators may be more inclined to take actions that might be considered inhumane under international law.
