Spy Drone Takes Off In The UK


If you’ve played GRAW 2 then the drones that are being deployed in Merseyside, England shouldn’t come as a surprise. What was once utilized by the military is now being used by law enforcement to help catch criminals. It will also be used to monitor traffic and investigate illegal firearms operations. The “spy drone” is capable of taking images from 500m above, can be equipped with a night vision camera for some after hours hijinx and it does all of this silently. The drones can be flown by remote control or a pre-programmed GPS nav system takes out some of the human error. A three-month trial is set to begin next month.
