Police and Homeland agencies worldwide are expanding the airborne missions to enable surveillance, Search and Rescue (SAR), traffic enforcement, command and control in exceptional situations and searching for criminal offenders all at a lower overall cost.
Additionally fixed-wing aircraft serve even more varied needs such as long range surveillance and reconnaissance operations that cover long distances, such as the span of a state, and are often used in conjunction with helicopters.
It is estimated that 3 crew members in a special mission aircraft can perform the work of dozens of ground officers safer and more cost effectively.
