"Shot Spotter"

For context in finding responsive documents, feel free to refer to this publicly released news article:


The purpose of the FAA’s program is to learn about how cities might be able to use drones in ways they haven’t before. So Louisville’s program, being probably the first of its kind, could set an example for other cities to do similar things in the future.

“They’re looking not only to validate the safety … I think they’re trying to drive innovation in many use cases for drones and how those can impact the economy,” Seidt said.

Seidt expects the FAA to announce in May which pilot projects it will approve." [source: ]
