This drone helped a SWAT team defuse an armed standoff

Last year, Impossible Aerospace built a drone that’s literally filled with batteries, so it can fly for up to two hours on a charge. Now, the company says a 90-minute version of its US-1 quadcopter has proven its worth to a SWAT team in Campbell, California.

Alicia-Marie Kodis’s insight:
This article discusses how a drone was used to show that the tear gas that the cops were using to get a suspect out of a building was not working, and made it so that the cops knew to put more into the building. Without the drones they would have not known they needed to do that. After 12 hours and the addition of more tear gas the suspect left the building. The drones give intelligence to officers that they had never had before.
