Posted in Gadgets and Photography and Tech

FLIR’s Black Hornet PRS is an “airborne personal reconnaissance system for dismounted soldiers.” Translation: it’s a pocket-size drone originally designed for military units who need undetectable recon in combat situations. This combat-proven drone is extremely light, nearly silent, and boasts a flight time up to 25 minutes. It uses EO & infrared optical technologies to transmit live video & HD still images day or night. The imagery is transmitted through an encrypted data link with ranges up to 2 kilometers & is stored on removable SD cards in the device. No word yet on civilian availability.
