A new drone platform, the LEMUR, will help SWAT teams locate, isolate, and communicate with suspects. A ruggedized and durable composition combined with an easy-to-use payload bay allows the platform to break glass, scale stairs, conduct two-way communications with a suspect, and more. 

The LEMUR’s novel battery technology is based on lithium-ion chemistry and allows for 31 minutes of flight time with up to 10 hours of perch time.

Built to be flown first-person view (FPV), the LEMUR has a modular high-definition RGB camera, built-in night vision, and IR illuminators to ensure operations run smoothly in the most demanding indoor environments.

A collaboration between Drone Nerds and BRINC Drones in the US, this tactical drone will enable SWAT teams to respond more quickly, more effectively, and without risk of life. 

The drone was built in conjunction with the Las Vegas Metro SWAT team. According to BRINC Drones, it has a feature set unlike any other indoor tactical drone in the world. The drone can breach structures, effectively locate suspects anywhere (including inside homes, skyscrapers, and buses), and facilitate two-way communication between crisis negotiators and suspects, according to the companies’ announcement.
