Drone regulations are currently being drafted in Brazil.
But the drone rules are expected to be very strict and are unlikely to be easily enforced.
The new drone regulations were proposed in the wake of an accident at the Brazilian drone testing centre on Thursday that killed a student, Eduardo Ceballos, who was flying the unmanned plane for the National Drone Federation (DDF) and the Brazilian Drone Association (DDA).
The accident happened when a drone that was being used to test a new version of the UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) was accidentally flown into a tree, killing Eduardo and two other students.
The drone was a UAV used by the National Defence Force (NDF) to test the drone’s new remote-controlled aircrafts and its drone-assisted military drones.
It was also used by police to track and track down criminal gangs in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.
The NDF and the DDA are not opposed to using drones to carry out their work but the NDF is not sure how the new rules will be enforced.
It has also proposed the creation of a new “drone bureau” that will have the sole responsibility for the oversight of the drones.
The proposal also calls for more information and transparency around the drones and their owners.
The proposed drone bureau has been described as a “government-controlled agency” and it is not clear how it will be operated or who will supervise its actions.
But Eduardo’s friend, the journalist Rafael Alves, has called for the drone bureau to be dissolved, arguing that it will not be able to protect the public from criminals.
The proposed drone department would also be in charge of the creation and use of the drone data and pictures.
The NDF said it is ready to help the bureau create a “code of ethics”.
“It is not enough for the DDF to get its drone regulations passed, it needs the police and the army to take over the drones,” Alves said.
The current drone rules, introduced by the NDDF last year, have led to some criticism from civil society groups.
But Rafael Alaves, a journalist and former DDF pilot, argues that the drone regulations are in line with Brazilian culture.
“In the drone industry, people who fly drones are treated as heroes,” he said.
“In the military, pilots and pilots are often considered gods.”
“We are not saying that the government shouldn’t have drones.
But they are being used for the military purpose and not for public use.
It is a tragedy that the current rules were created by the government.”
The NDDF and the NDDA are the main supporters of the new drone rules.
In April this year, the NDFP announced a campaign to create a drone bureau in Brazil, with the aim of setting up a new legal framework for the industry and the regulation of drones.
However, the government is still looking for the support of civil society organisations and organisations working for social justice.
In September this year the NDFA launched a “drill for change” campaign in Brazil in an attempt to create awareness about drones and the drone laws.
The campaign included a series of posters, flyers and radio broadcasts.
The campaign has also been supported by the International Drone Technology Association (IDA), which is currently campaigning to create drone guidelines for the international industry.
However Alves argues that it is too early to predict the impact of the rules on the drone technology industry.
“The regulations are only a piece of paper and they are still very much in the drawing board.
The regulations need to be passed, not just implemented,” he told Al Jazeera.”
We have to see what will happen with the drone sector.
We have no idea what the government will do with drones in the next few years.”
