Droids To Patrol Olympics

DroidThe RAF will use MQ-9 "Reaper" robo-planes to patrol the skies over London during the Olympics in 2012.

The unmanned droids will fly above London to provide surveillance for the security of the Games. They are equipped with a multi-spectral telescopic imaging system, which can locate a human's body heat and see in the dark. They also carry a synthetic-aperture radar which can track people walking on the ground.

The droids are remotely controlled by pilots based on the ground.
