Also: Another Starlink Mission, Honeywell Pursues UAM/UAS Mkt, Drone Delivery Canada, Altitude Angel-Inmarsat

In late 2018, during the height of paranoia over unproven drone sightings near Gatwick Airport, which shut things down for days, Sussex's finest carried out an assault with at least a dozen officers on the home of Paul and Elaine Gait -- holding them for 36 hours. Eventually; the two were released -- without charge --  whereupon the pair sued Sussex PD for wrongful arrest and false imprisonment. Now, there has been a resolution to the matter and Sussex PD will have to dig deep into their piggybank -- to the tune of some 200,000 pounds for the settlement and legal fees. Deuce Drone has signed a Demonstration Agreement with Potters Wings Mobile, LLC, a Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee, to conduct a demonstration of the company’s drone delivery system. The demonstration will be conduc
