The US government could begin sharing UAV drone technology to certain allies

The United States military continues to expand development of its unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) fleet, with several allied nations also seeking U.S. UAV technology.

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates confirmed there has been interest from Britain, Canada, Spain, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and other nations.  The U.S. already has expressed interest in sharing certain UAV technologies with Pakistan.

There is still serious concern that shared UAV material -- including used UAV drones -- could be stolen or given to Iran, North Korea, and terrorist groups throughout the Middle East, security experts have warned in the past.

The U.S. continues to expand its use of UAVs in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as other countries look to use UAVs for several different purposes that range from attacks and reconnaissance, security, and climate research.

Iran currently has a UAV program that concerns western security experts, though the real world threat of these UAVs still is unknown.

Iran currently has an active UAV program that continues to concern western security experts, even though the U.S. military should have little trouble fending off Iranian-made drones.  As noted earlier, there is a more serious problem that Iran could begin to sell its drones to insurgents fighting coalition forces in Afghanistan.

Gates also recently noted Iran and other countries developing UAVs “could create difficulties” for the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan.
