Montgomery County Receives ShadowHawk UAS

Posted October 11

On October 28th, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Texas, will receive a MK-II ShadowHawk Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) from Vanguard Defense Industries.  The UAS is intended to assist the County in a number of critical operations to include emergency management, search & rescue, and S.W.A.T. operations.  In addition to representing a significant cost savings effort over a full sized aircraft, the department can deploy the system quickly via a police Sport Utility Vehicle.  The ShadowHawk was purchased utilizing Department of Homeland Security Grant funding and included training of several deputies already on staff with the MCSO.
