Drone AviationÂ will provide WATT electronic tethered drones,Â in-field support packages and operator flight training services to a Defense DepartmentÂ component under a $400,000 contract.

TheÂ UAS featuresÂ dual sensor electro-optical/infrared military-grade, gimbaled payloads that work to processÂ day and nighttime videos, the company added.
