The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spent “approximately $600,000” to purchase six drones, three different models, between September 2011 and September 2012 “but never flew them operationally” because they were “unreliable or unsuitable,” says a March 2015 audit conducted by the Justice Department inspector-general.
“ATF officials told us that they encountered a series of technological limitations – such as issues related to flight time and maneuverability – with these UAS and concluded that the systems were unsuitable to support operations. ATF subsequently suspended all UAS-related activities and disposed of these UAS,” the audit said.
