UAV Over Miami

Miami, Florida police could soon be the first in the U.S. to use cutting-edge, spy-in-the-sky technology to beef up their fight against crime. A small, 14-pound pilotless drone manufactured by Honeywell International, capable of hovering and "staring" using electro-optic or infrared sensors, is expected to make its debut soon in the skies over the Florida Everglades.

Ladies, if you're at the catching some sun, and you hear what sounds like the largest dragonfly ever to buzz around the ocean, you might be under "surveillance."

Oh, and criminals, too, should be wary.

Miami police are awaiting Federal Aviation Administration approval for their plan.
