SUGGESTED FOR YOU

In response to the threat of drone attacks, Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department
has introduced a net­carrying drone designed to capture other unmanned aircraft
that fly over restricted areas, Asian Review reports. The initiative is the first of its
kind in Japan.
Tokyo police have been confronting the problem of drone threats since an
unmanned aircraft carrying a small amount of radioactive soil landed on the prime
minister's roof in April, according to the Asahi Shimbun AJW. 
“Terrorist attacks using drones carrying explosives are a possibility,” a senior
member of the police department’s Security Bureau told the outlet. “We hope to
defend the nation’s functions with the worst­case scenario in mind.”
After trying several options, police decided the net would be the best option to
capture the drones without them falling and potentially injuring people.
According to the Security Bureau, the six­propeller drones feature 6­square­meter

in the month, Japan Today reports.
Initially, the police force plans to deploy only one of the drones, and will deploy it
when other drones enter restricted space. On the ground, police will issue warnings
via loudspeakers to suspicious drones before taking the steps to intercept them,
according to Asian Review.
The police force's drone squad will provide around­the­clock coverage for a full
month as part of a trial run. In February, the initiative will go fully into effect with a
fleet of 10 drones.

2. Justice Scalia Questions Need For
Integration

Drones are increasingly popular in Japan, forcing Japanese officials to take
precautions against drone activity.
"In Japan, it is illegal to pilot drones over certain areas such as airports and power
plants, over roads, or above a height of 150m," Paul Haswell, a partner at the law
firm Pinsent Masons, told the BBC.
Following an amendment to the country's Aviation Act, tighter airspace regulations
went into place in Japan as of Dec. 10 to help thwart potential drone threats.
