Drone Expected in SoFlo -

A new Eye in the Sky aid may be arriving soon at the Miami-Dade Police Department. Described as Honeywell's T-hawk, a 20-pound drone that can fly for 40 minutes at 10K feet and cruise at 46 miles an hour.

I believe the MDPD was lent the craft to try out not long ago, but no one even noticed it while it was aloft. The current article about it, however, seems to have kicked up quite a fuss.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office often uses a helicopter which used to have a big searchlight at night, but not anymore. I suspect they've switched to more modern night vision equipment on it which was originally developed for the military.
