“Keeping Railroads Secure from Drones,” Law360

In this article, Jenner & Block Partner Marc L. Warren and Associate Jeffrey J. Immel explain that railroad companies have started realizing the potential benefits of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly known as drones.  Drones have, for instance, been used to monitor worker safety compliance and to inspect railroad infrastructure.  “But while UAS provide benefits, they can also pose security risks and unique challenges for railroads – such as industrial espionage,  interference with trail operation and worker harassment,” the authors observe.
