This is a google translation from a german newspaper Die Welt.  


The Chinese drone manufacturer DJI must expect further restrictions in the USA. According to a report by the Financial Times, the US Department of Interior is on the verge of stopping most of its civilian drone program. Approximately 1,000 drones, some or all of which come from Chinese production, are said to be affected. DJI is by far the largest manufacturer of civil drones with a global market share of more than 70 percent.

The background to the action against Chinese drones is the fear of espionage by the Chinese government and cyberattacks involving drones. As the "Financial Times" further reports, there should be exceptions, for example for emergency operations and natural disasters.
In Germany there is apparently no fear of Chinese espionage. Neither the Ministry of the Interior nor the Ministry of Transport take the manufacturer's country of origin into account when procuring drones, nor do they make the relevant specifications. "We do not have such a regulation," says the Federal Ministry of Transport.

The Interior Ministry has dealt with the problem, according to its own statements. "The risk of a possible data outflow for products from the Chinese manufacturer DJI is generally known to the Federal Police and the Federal Criminal Police Office," it says on request. However, there is no concrete information about possible espionage activities through the use of drones from Chinese production.

That is most likely for government-level stuff.  Like mapping for top secret sites and demonstration videos for use internally like DARPA.  It probably has nothing to do w/ us at the consumer-level or even at the first responder level.

I guess in the future it would be almost impossible to hide information.

What were you counting on, anyway? Nowadays espionage is the main activity not only of large and small organizations but of entire countries. After all, the most valuable thing is information.

And now USA blacklist DJI

-> https://www.reuters.com/article/idUSKBN28S24I
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - China’s SZ DJI Technology Co, the world’s largest drone maker, on Friday was added to the U.S. government’s economic blacklist along with dozens of other Chinese companies.


Reuters reported earlier that dozens of Chinese companies were being added to the so-called entity list, including the country’s top chipmaker, SMIC.
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Friday criticized what he called China’s “ubiquitous surveillance to repress its citizens in Xinjiang and elsewhere.”
The Commerce Department added DJI, AGCU Scientech, China National Scientific Instruments and Materials, and Kuang-Chi Group because the four companies “enabled wide-scale human rights abuses within China through abusive genetic collection and analysis or high-technology surveillance.”

The four Chinese companies did not immediately comment or could not be reached on Friday.
The department also said in some cases the four companies had “facilitated the export of items by China that aid repressive regimes around the world, contrary to U.S. foreign policy interests.”
The United States government has previously raised concerns about DJI and other Chinese makers of drones.

In January, the U.S. Interior Department said it was grounding its fleet of about 800 Chinese-made drones and earlier halted additional Interior Department purchases of such drones.
In May 2019, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned U.S. firms of the risks to company data from Chinese-made drones.
Separately, U.S. lawmakers this month opted not to ban the purchase of Chinese drone technology by U.S. agencies as part of an annual defense bill.
