"If you’re a private security company patrolling for pirates in the waters off East Africa where do you store all your firepower when the nearby countries won’t let you store heavy weapons within their boundaries? Why you create a floating arsenal of course!"
...
"Davis said his company operates two tugs as floating armories and carefully maintains log books for his company’s hundreds of weapons and records for each shot fired. He did not allow other companies to rent out space on his tugs because of regulatory problems, he said, but hopes to do so soon and has sent out advertisements."

"As we’ve said before, this incident was almost inevitable in the crowded skies over Middle Eastern war zones where smaller UAVs  piloted by operators with limited situational awareness buzz all over low-altitude airspace. The problem was so bad at one point that I had C-130 pilots tell me their biggest fear while flying at low-altitude wasn’t being shot at by insurgents, it was colliding with a UAV. So called, sense-and-avoid technology is being rapidly developed to help avoid this type of situation. Sense-and-avoid tech basically tells drones when they are close to another aircraft and to automatically avoid a collision."
