Swift Tactical Systems secures USD 17m drone services contract from Bahamas

Swift Tactical Systems, a subsidiary of Swift Engineering, has announced it has won a USD 17 million contract to provide Bahamas government agencies and ministries with a comprehensive Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) program, the company said.

All law enforcement agencies, immigration and customs, corrections facilities, and the military will have access to the drones for various activities.
