Honeywell To Sell Miami-Dade Police a Surveillance Drone

January 7th, 2011 01:48 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

AHuxley writes “The Miami-Dade Police Department recently finalized a deal to buy a 20-pound drone from defense firm Honeywell. The drone can fly for 40 minutes, reach heights of 10,500 feet and cruise in the air at 46 miles an hour. As the Miami-Dade Police Department has recently made a lot of budget cuts, the funding may have come from a federal grant. An eye in the sky like over Iraq and Afghanistan may soon be looking down over South Florida ‘to keep people safe.’ Honeywell has applied to the FAA for clearance to fly the drone in urban areas.”
