Washington, DC (WUSA9) It’s small. It’s bright yellow, and it’s capable of cracking Wi-Fi passwords, eavesdropping on your cell phone calls and reading your text messages. It’s an unmanned spy drone and it just landed in Washington, DC.

Long-time friends and former Air Force buddies, Mike Tassey and Rich Perkins describe their state-of-the-art cyber drone as hard to take down, hard to see and virtually hard to detect.

They built it in a garage, using off the shelf electronics to prove a drone can be used to launch cyber-attacks.

It needs a human for take-off and landing but once airborne, it can fly any pre-programmed route posing as a cell phone tower and tricking wireless cell phones.

While it’s flying those points, it has a number of antennas for picking up your cell phone conversation, for picking up blue tooth for picking up and monitoring Wi Fi signals.

Tassey and Perkins tested the drone in isolated conditions to avoid breaking laws or recording conversations other than their own.
