In April we demonstrated our Shadow, a military-police grade quadcopter, to several police departments in Connecticut. We plan to demonstrate our Cyclops, a fixed wing drone equipped with three cameras to monitor public safety, to police departments situated along the Connecticut coastline. Our Cyclops is equipped with thermal and high definition zoom cameras to help scan for bathers who ventured too far away from shore. In Cape Cod, we intend to offer our Cyclops to police departments to help monitor great white shark activity along their coastlines.”
