To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Pennsylvania Right to Know 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.”
