When you think military drones, the first things that come to mind are highly advanced and sophisticated killing machines that are designed to make it easier than ever for members of a particular army battalion to quickly and easily target enemies before taking them out in precise and surgical fashion.

However, the new Tether Eye is a military drone that places greater emphasis on surveillance and security. This is a drone, developed by AeroVironment, that is capable of being launched up into the air from fixed locations or even while on the move. The drone is intended to hover in the sky and capture 360-degree video that can then be streamed back to the base station to make it easier for troops to know their environment.

This military drone makes use of the latest aviation, robotic and photographic technology to give troops a tactical advantage.
