Israeli defense firm Elbit Systems Thursday unveiled a 1.6-ton unmanned aircraft vehicle designed to fly in airspace currently reserved for piloted civilian planes as a race heats up to deploy military drones outside combat zones.Changing security concerns following the dismantling of Daesh (ISIS) and rising geopolitical tensions have caused European countries to shift defense efforts from far-away conflicts to homeland security, resulting in demand for drones that can be safely integrated into civilian airspace to, for example, monitor border crossings, Elbit officials said.The drone is compliant with NATO criteria, qualifying it to be integrated into civilian airspace, Elbit said.The StarLiner has been flying in civilian airspace in Israel over the past year.
