Faced with greater security challenges around the world, the US military plans to expand drone flights by 50% over the next four years.

Currently, the military runs as many as 65 daily flights. By 2019, this number will have risen to as many as 90 air patrols. That's a significant increase considering that in 2004, there had only been as few as five drone flights per day.
