New Study Shows Strong Public Supports for Use of Unmanned Aircraft

An overwhelming majority of Americans support the use of unmanned aircraft for homeland security, search and rescue, and fighting crime, according to a new poll released today.


The Institute for Homeland Security Solutions (IHSS) was established in 2008 to expand the resources available to the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies to conduct social science research in support of the national homeland security mission. IHSS conducts applied social science research that seeks to improve detection, analysis, and understanding of homeland security threats and enhance response and recovery. IHSS is administered by RTI International in cooperation with Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the North Carolina Military Foundation. IHSS is federally funded and coordinates its research activities with the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, Resilient Systems Division.
