Tundra Drone, a leading automoving drone light manufacturer for the DJI Mavic 3 series, has unveiled an article outlining how its drone lights can improve public safety missions.

As part of its mission to empower drone pilots with the best illumination under all conditions, Tundra Drone coordinated with the Story County Sheriff’s Office to provide solutions for challenging nighttime operations.

The Challenges of Utilizing Drone Technology at Night

The Story County Sheriff’s Office emphasizes the importance of having access to comprehensive information, particularly in scenarios where dispatch reports provide only a partial picture of the situation at hand. While drones with thermal cameras have proven valuable in identifying heat signatures, they fall short in providing detailed visual information, such as verifying individuals or potential threats accurately.

The Role of Drone Lights in Public Safety

Deputy Sheriff Jason Grubbs stated; We’ve discovered that combining drones with spotlights greatly enhances our capabilities.

These aerial lights offer clarity and illumination in the darkness, providing crucial details that thermal imaging alone cannot capture, such as color of clothing, signs of life or potential weapons, especially if the subject is behind glass or in a dense forest. By combining drones with spotlights, the Story County Sheriff’s Office can obtain a clearer view of their surroundings, ensuring more successful missions.”

Enhanced Situational Awareness in the Dark

Enhanced Situational Awareness in the DarkThe integration of aerial spotlights not only aids in locating missing persons or suspects but also enhances the safety of ground personnel. By providing a bird’s-eye view of the situation, these drone lights enhance their situational awareness in the dark, allowing them to make informed decisions and navigate hazardous environments more effectively.

Tactical Advantage and De-escalation

Moreover, the presence of spotlights on drones offers a tactical advantage in various scenarios, including apprehending fleeing suspects. By illuminating the area or momentarily plunging it into darkness, law enforcement can influence the behavior of suspects, potentially leading to peaceful resolutions and de-escalation of tense situations.

Safety and Efficiency

Ultimately, the use of lights from Tundra Drone enhances safety, efficiency, and effectiveness in the Story County Sheriff’s Office’s operations. By providing visibility in the darkness, these lights minimize risks to both human assets and unmanned aircraft, resulting in safer and more efficient missions.


The Story County Sheriff’s Office exemplifies the enhancing capability of drone lighting technology and its impact on law enforcement and public safety missions. By embracing lights from Tundra Drone, they have improved their ability to make informed responses and operate effectively in the dark, ultimately leading to safer communities and more successful outcomes.
