AbstractThe Law Enforcement Aerial Platform System (LEAPS), designed and integrated by Spiral Technology, Inc., was architected to marry airborne sensors and ground-based instrumentation in support of and to augment the Law Enforcement and/or Disaster Response and Recovery agencies of counties and municipalities. The mission of LEAPS is to provide an affordable reliable manned or unmanned aerial surveillance system that readily integrates with existing Law Enforcement's and Local Government's infrastructures. The initial sensors being integrated into the LEAPS concept include both Visible Spectrum and Infrared Imager. Salient requirements for LEAPS include: Ground Control of Airborne Sensors; Sensor Data captured and archived on the ground with time-tag and geographic location data; and Controlled Custody and Preservation of Sensor Data as Evidentiary Material This paper describes the LEAPS System Development Effort.
