Ever wished your department had a Predator unmanned aerial vehicle? Well, you probably can’t afford one. However, you can have a UAV. AeroVironment’s Raven is a hand-launched propeller-driven glider that can send live color video back to a ground-based monitor. It’s controlled just like a radio-controlled airplane. Law enforcement applications include surveillance, search and rescue, and other outdoor operations.
