Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Define UAV.

    • A.

      Unmanned aerial vehicle

    • B.

      University of antelope

    • C.

      Ultraviolet

    Correct Answer
    A. Unmanned aerial vehicle
    Explanation
    UAV stands for unmanned aerial vehicle, which refers to an aircraft that is operated without a human pilot on board. These vehicles are typically controlled remotely or can fly autonomously using pre-programmed flight plans or artificial intelligence. UAVs have various applications, including military surveillance, aerial photography, scientific research, and commercial delivery services. They are equipped with sensors, cameras, and other instruments to gather data and perform specific tasks. The term "unmanned" signifies that these vehicles can operate without human intervention, making them versatile and useful in situations where manned flights may be dangerous or impractical.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A UAV is controlled

    • A.

      From the ground

    • B.

      From a pre-program

    • C.

      Both A and B

    • D.

      It' can't

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A and B
    Explanation
    The correct answer is both A and B. A UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) can be controlled from the ground, meaning that a human operator can remotely control its movements and actions. Additionally, a UAV can also be controlled through a pre-programmed set of instructions, where it follows a predetermined flight path or carries out specific tasks without real-time human intervention. Therefore, both options A and B are correct as a UAV can be controlled from the ground and from a pre-program.

    Correct Answer
    A. Flying an aircraft more than 100 pounds
    Explanation
    The question asks for a restriction that does not apply to recreational drones. The options "don't fly near people," "flying below 400 feet," and "staying 5 miles away from an airport" are all valid restrictions for recreational drones. However, the option "flying an aircraft more than 100 pounds" is not a restriction because recreational drones are typically much smaller and lighter than 100 pounds.

    Some people are wary of cameras on drones because they believe that criminals can use them to stakeout homes and gather information for potential robberies. The presence of cameras on drones can provide criminals with a way to survey a property without being physically present, making it easier for them to plan and execute illegal activities. This fear stems from concerns about privacy and security, as the use of drones equipped with cameras can potentially invade personal spaces and compromise the safety of individuals and their belongings.
