General Ben Hodges, Commanding US Army in Europe: interview in the video.
In demonstration outside, the latest drone from the French Eca Group, the IT180. Its asset? Its almost infinite flight autonomy because it is connected by a cable to a vehicle which provides the energy to fly. With an onboard camera, the 6.5 lbs (3kg) drone can monitor a large area 500 feet (150 m) above the ground. Ideal to observe demonstrations or sensitive sites.
