Lee County Dragonfish for Public safety

Autel Dragonfish For Law Enforcement Services

The Autel Dragonfish is a powerful aerial work tool, and the Dragonfish's unique tilt-rotor design simplifies operation and maximizes performance and efficiency. With powerful AI tracking capabilities, multiple modular payload options and long battery life, it is widely used in business behavior and public safety affairs.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office in Fort Myers, Florida, has become the first law enforcement agency in the United States to acquire the Dragonfish, an advanced fixed-wing drone. Sheriff's Office officials said the department will revolutionize the way they respond to calls in the future.

Sheriff's office officials claim they were primarily drawn to the Dragonfish because of its two-hour flight time, which is also rare among commercial drones.

The Dragonfish's fixed-wing design is capable of long-duration flight, and for security services, the extra-long endurance can be used for critical tasks such as locating missing persons and tracking wanted objects, rather than using helicopters.

For the security sector, the use of Dragonfish to replace the need to haul helicopters will minimise the need for the agency's aviation division and allow more calls to be handled simultaneously.

"Being able to fly our helicopter for one call and launch the Dragonfish for another allows us to provide a higher level of service to the citizens of Lee County," said Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno. "Every time we can add one more pick-up. number of calls, we're all helping to save lives."

"As Sheriff, my goal is to bring the latest and greatest technology to this agency," Sheriff Masseno continued. "The Lee County Sheriff's Office is proud to be the first law enforcement agency to use Dragonfish in our daily operations."

Just last month, Dragonfish once again did an excellent job with law enforcement.

A 28-year-old man, who was arrested after his Coon Road home was cordoned off, said he wanted to be killed by law enforcement. The man was in possession of a firearm and fired. At the scene, the Lee County Sheriff's Office deployed bomb disposal teams, armored vehicles, and Dragonfish drones.

The Dragonfish drone can be very good at finding the location of the suspect. After five hours of negotiation at the scene, Conor Hawke was arrested and faces charges of personal crime, aggravated assault on emergency personnel and shooting.

The Dragonfish's powerful mission capabilities are significantly ahead of other VTOL drone competition, and the Dragonfish has a top speed of 67 mph and can maintain a distance of 18 miles from the operator. Also equipped with a 4K optical zoom lens and infrared camera, the unit is well-equipped to assist the sheriff's office when responding to calls at night.
