Hero is a versatile reusable marking tool employing multi-directional bright light flashes and a ~130dB tone sound which can be seen and heard over considerable distance. It is compact, extremely rugged, and able to withstand deployment from and moving vehicles. Designed in partnership with DEA officers to mark ground objects of interest from airborne platforms, Hero is deployed as part of our ongoing war against illegal drug trafficking.
