NEANY is debuting its first unmanned surface vehicle prototype, DragonSpy, at booth 3754. According to the company, the USV comes equipped with an ARES 7.62mm externally powered gun, an ultra-light weapons mount and i2Tech's i200L camera. But the company claims the end-user can integrate different types of sensors, cameras or weapons onto the boat.

DragonSpy can also survey waterways in real time, something program director Matt Young says can benefit border patrol, nuclear plants, military and homeland security.

"[For instance,] the Texas border, a lot of it is waterway, so having an unmanned vehicle that can travel up and down the waterway, that can be a customer," Young said.
