Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS)

In 2018, MDERS began working with Fire and EMS, Law Enforcement, and Emergency Management in Montgomery County to establish sUAS programs in their departments. Montgomery County Police now have an operational sUAS program. In 2019, MDERS started working with Prince George’s County Police Department to establish an sUAS Program for the department. Both counties have completed the required FAA Part 107 training and are in the process of purchasing sUAS vehicles for their respective agencies. Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security is currently working to build the same capability.
