Fire Scout shows off real-time vid

A Northrop Grumman Fire Scout unmanned helicopter testing in the United States provided real-time video feed of electro-optical/ infrared sensor imagery to participants at the Paris Air Show last month. The video was of selected areas of Chesapeake Bay and the shoreline of Southern Maryland. The Navy Fire Scout will complete operational evaluation this summer.
