Covert Surveillance Bot (CSB)

The Covert Surveillance Bot is an ideal method for the unobtrusive gathering evidence of illegal activities.

Designed to mimic the appearance of flying insects such as wasps and bluebottles, the CSB comes equipped with multiple cameras, smoke dispensers, sting deterrents and autopilot.

A range of paint designs are available to match the native insect appearance for a variety of regions.
