Sea Shepherd Building A Robot Army?

Furthering the tools at their disposal to combat illegal whaling and fishing, Sea Shepherd is apparently looking to invest in robotically-controlled flying cameras.

According to news reports, the firm behind the “Octocopter” is readying a future demonstration of their technology for U.S. representatives of the anti-whaling organization. From the article,

“Developed over two years, the machine features state-of-the art electronic GPS wizardry and video and still cameras. The ‘octocopter’ – so called because of its eight propellers – is ‘flown’ like a helicopter and can be kept in the air for up to 30 minutes before batteries have to be recharged.”

Obviously, such a device would aide in filming illegal fishing vessels — but is limited by both battery and range to close encounters only. Depending on price, however, I wouldn’t be surprised if a small army of “eyes in the sky” were dispatched to be yet another thorn in the side of whaling vessels.
