Drone enthusiasts take heed: If you don't want to see your precious drone blasted into a million pieces, keep clear of United States military installations.

The policy is classified.

Officials say the policy was a response to the surging popularity of drones.
The Military Times highlighted one issue bound to arise from the new policy, noting that it isn't always clear which airspace belongs to the Defence Department. But the land is only leased from commercial and private farmers who use the rest of the area for crops or livestock. This new policy affects 133 USA military bases. All drone activities within the United States must follow Federal Aviation Administration rules and guidelines. That announcement didn't say anything about the military reserving the right to obliterate or intercept drones, however.
