To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act., I hereby request the following records:

As reported in a press release by i-HLS and corroborated by an article in Forbes, Israeli start-up Eyeron Systems is currently manufacturing “micro-sized drones” with the intention of pursuing the market of US law enforcement and first-responder agencies. The company reportedly “works with strong distributors around the world and advanced purchasing procedures are underway with many customers. Letters of intent were received from leading fire and police departments in the US.”

In reference to the above articles, we hereby request:

1) Any and all communications between the department and Eyeron, Nimrod Ron (founder/CEO), or any distributors regarding products by Eyeron, including but not limited to monetary transactions, purchase agreements, purchase orders, invoices, MOUs, letters of intent, negotiations, consultation on product specifications, and past or existing contracts, from January 1st, 2016 to August 16, 2018 (or the day this request is submitted)
