There have been 90 drone crashes since 2007, so the military is setting a bad example. Opening up our airspace for drones will require better reliability.

Or some kind of smart eyes avoidance system. I still like the cellphone platform idea, one in each plane that constantly sends the crafts GPS coordinates to a website that anyone can monitor. Oops, that might include terrorists!
