Annotation: After a brief summary of a report on the testing of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) for law enforcement use in indoor tactical missions, this listing provides instructions on how to obtain the full report from the Justice Technology Information Center (JTIC).
Abstract: The summary indicates that the report describes testing done by three law enforcement agencies regarding their use of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) for indoor tactical missions. It notes that as law enforcement continues to consider uses for sUAS technology, there is limited information available on this technology’s use indoors. Of primary concern is the need for information on the effects and potential limitations of maneuvering sUAS in tight, confined spaces and in environments were GPS, video, and command/control coverage have typically been used. The full report summarizes general observations from each agency’s testing of the indoor use of sUAS.
