Now the assistant professor at the University of Texas explains his work to RT. In an interview with RT America this week, Todd Humphreys of the University of Texas at Austins Radionavigation Laboratory reveals that it only took a few researchers, around $1,000 in parts and some seriously smart software to send signals to an unmanned aerial vehicles GPS receiver, hijack the craft in mid-air and then have it do the departments bidding — all right in front of Homeland Security agents. courtesy of RT http-//rt.com/usa/texas-professor-drone-hacking-249/ Photo- Courtesy Todd Humphreys
