DARPA has awarded two Phase 2 contracts of its Gremlins program to Dynetics, Inc. and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. The goal of the Gremlins program is to develop UAS that can be launched in groups from different types of military aircraft, while they are out of range of adversaries. These vehicles would be launched from military aircrafts such as small fixed-wing UAS, bombers and fighters. Senator Edward Markey (D-MA) and Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) have introduced legislation in Congress to establish to protect the privacy of individuals from the expanded use of commercial and government drones, via what they call the Drone Aircraft Privacy and Transparency Act.
