There's a bunch of technology bundled into that craft and I'd like to hear more about the propulsion system. It's tough to imagine a prop driven craft at FL65.

New propulsion system

Elizabeth, that hydrogen propulsion system sounds very interesting.  Perhaps we could get more information about that.

Drones that can loiter that high and long will be very useful in many areas of security.  Couple that with satelites and you have a system that will make it hard for the bad guys to hide.

Drones becoming a preferred approach

Interesting clip. I just recently heard a program on NPR discussing this administration's preference for drone war strikes because of the so-called "limited collatoral damage." The thrust of the interview, though, was commentary from a journalist in the field where drones frequently fly and the terror they command among civilian population. His point was that even though drones are positioned as less invasive and more targeted than traditional war fare, they are still killing machines and should be used sparingly.
