"If you happen to see this yellow drone flying above your
neighborhood you'd be right to be concerned. WASP is equipped with
the tools to crack Wi-Fi network passwords made possible by an
on-board VIA EPIA Pico-ITX PC running BackTrack Linux equipped with
32GB of storage to record information. BackTrack offers a full
suite of digital forensics and penetration testing tools making it
a good fit for this setup.
"WASP can also act as a GSM network antenna meaning it will be
able to eavesdrop on calls/text messages made over that network by
any phone deciding to connect through it."
