1 Drones – Insurance Implications March 12, 2015 – PAMIC – Nittany Lion Inn 1

2 Agenda Part One – Overview – Reported and Potential Uses – Potential Exposures and Coverage Issues – ISO Activity Endorsement Options Rating Considerations 2

3 Drones as an Emerging Issues “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Benjamin Franklin 3

4 Drones as an Emerging Issues What is an emerging issue: – New phenomenon: nature and effects are relatively unknown E.g., nanotechnology – New risk: nature and effects are relatively known but involve unique characteristics E.g., hydraulic fracturing Potential Impact: – May go beyond existing underwriting and risk management best practices – May go beyond existing actuarial calculations 4

5 Drones - An Overview 5

6 What Are Drones The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 defines: – Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) - an unmanned aircraft and associated elements (including communication links and the components that control the unmanned aircraft) that are required for the pilot in command to operate safely and efficiently in the national airspace system – Unmanned Aircraft (UA) - an aircraft that is operated without a possibility of direct human intervention from within or on the aircraft

7 Technology And Design Types – Fixed wing – Quad rotors and octo-copters – Micro air vehicles (MAVs) Flight Features – Mini: low altitude, short duration – Tactical: low to medium altitude, up to several hours, line-of-sight – Strategic: medium to high altitude, hours to days, long- range Navigation – Remote control ground station – Automation systems – Satellite data link Source: actu.com/IMG/jpg_PH jpg Source: ummary/ppts/Schlickenmaier.ppt

8 Drones – Reported & Potential Uses “We’re not talking Internet retail giants anymore” 8

9 Reported And Potential Uses Military – Intelligence gathering – Combat missions Law Enforcement And Security Surveillance – Crime investigation – Border protection – Security of commercial properties – Neighborhood watch 9 Source: yles/inline- medium/public/customs_and_border_ protection_drone.jpg?itok=kCYlnFcw

10 Reported And Potential Uses Search And Rescue Operations – Search and rescue – Delivery of supplies and food to disaster areas Agriculture – Monitor crops – Locate livestock and assess available forage – Crop spraying 10 Source: fire/index.html Source: https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/ field_offices/fsdo/orl/local_more/medi a/fy14summit/145SafetySummit_Nex tGenOverview_3_20_14.pdf

11 Reported And Potential Uses Communications – Movie filming – Sporting events Delivery – Packaged goods and other mail Photography – Real-estate – Weddings Inspection – Insurance claims evaluation – Infrastructure evaluation (e.g. bridges and dams) – Underwriting inspections (e.g. roof) 11

12 Drones – Potential Exposures & Coverage Issues “Just to name a few” 12

13 Potential Exposures - Liability Bodily Injury And Property Damage Liability – Potential defect in design or manufacture – Collision with persons or property – Interruption in data-link transmission communication failure Personal injury – Invasion of privacy – Trespass and nuisance – Infringement and defamation 13

14 Potential Coverage Issues - Liability Provisions expressly addressing aircraft under the ISO CGL today? – Coverage A An exclusion with respect to the ownership, maintenance, use or entrustment to others of aircraft Some limited exceptions may apply – Coverage B No exclusion expressly addresses aircraft 14

15 Potential Exposures - Property Property Exposures – First-party property damage – Perils of aircraft and falling objects – Business interruption losses – Hacking 15

16 Potential Coverage Issues - Property Property Coverage Issues – Under the ISO Standard Commercial Property Policy: Property not covered provisions address aircraft as property not covered if operated principally away from the described premises as well as personal property “while airborne” Specific provisions exist with respect to loss caused by physical contact of an aircraft; including caused by objects falling from an aircraft – Business Interruption With respect to direct physical loss to covered drone(s), “period of restoration”? Are the “operations” new to the risk? 16

17 Potential Exposures and Coverage Issues What About Other Lines of Business? – Homeowners? – Businessowners? – Farm? – Cyber? – Workers Compensation? 17

18 Drones – ISO Activity “Endorsement options and rating considerations” 18

19 New ISO Liability Exclusion Endorsements Optional exclusion endorsements – ISO GL – Coverage A only Delineates existing aircraft-related exclusion – Coverage B only Introduces exclusion addressing Unmanned Aircraft – Coverage A and B Combines aspects of Coverage A and B options 19

20 New ISO Liability Exclusion Endorsements Optional coverage endorsements – ISO GL – Coverage A only Delineates existing aircraft-related exclusion Adds schedule to designate: – Drones for which the exclusion will not apply – The types of projects or operations the above exception will be limited to – An optional designated aggregate (sub- limit) when coverage will apply 20

21 New ISO Liability Exclusion Endorsements Optional coverage endorsements – ISO GL (Continued) – Coverage B only Introduces exclusion addressing Unmanned Aircraft Adds schedule to designate: – Drones for which the exclusion will not apply – The types of projects or operations the above exception will be limited to – An optional designated aggregate (sub- limit) when coverage will apply 21

22 New ISO Liability Exclusion Endorsements Optional coverage endorsements - ISO GL (Continued) – Coverage A and B Combines aspects of Coverage A and Coverage B only endorsements Optional designated aggregate applicable to both coverages A and B Similar options were also introduced for use with the ISO Commercial Liability Umbrella Program (sans the designated aggregate limit options) 22

23 Drone Rating Considerations – Liability Limited Data on Non-military Drone Losses Crashes – Bodily Injury – Property Damage – Will all crashes yield one or the other -- or both? Location – Rural – Urban Drone Characteristics – Size – Capabilities and Operations (photography, spraying, payload capabilities) 23

24 ISO Drone Activity Filed GL/CU/CX endorsements end of 2014 – To become effective 6/1/2015 Reviewing topic for following LOBs – Commercial Property – Businessowners – Farm – Commercial Inland Marine 24
