ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the benefits of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) Scout developed by Aeryon Labs to the surveillance operation of the U.S. government in Central America where an alleged drug lord and his crew were hiding. Chris Barter, Scout program manager for its distributor Datron, says that it can track movement patterns inside a house. It also communicates to its base station via a 900-megahertz (MHz) link and Global Positioning System- (GPS) enabled. When the lithium-ion batteries are fully charged, it offers transmission up to 3 kilometers.
