The Department of Homeland Security is warning that commercial drones made by the China-based firm Da Jian Innovations (DJI) may be providing “U.S. critical infrastructure and law enforcement data” to the Chinese government and favored industries in that country, according to a copy of an August, 2017 Intelligence Bulletin (PDF) published by the website Public Intelligence.
In-brief: Unmanned aerial vehicles manufactured by the Chinese firm DJI will be blocked from flying over the U.S. Capitol according to a statement by the company. The move raises important questions about the role that connected device makers will play in determining how, when and where customers use their products.
