That’s the conclusion of a report from the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International released yesterday.

Based on a survey of 2,000 people, AUVSI concluded “an overwhelming majority of Americans support the use of unmanned aircraft for homeland security, search and rescue, and fighting crime.”

The survey showed that 88 percent of the general public supports the use of drones in search and rescue operations, 67 percent support their use in homeland security missions, 63 percent support drone crime fighters (watch out Superman) and 61 percent support their commercial application.
