|"Advanced nanofactories can assemble a spy drone on demand which can then be remotely controlled by the agent until released or destroyed, at which point a new drone will be assembled. Further upgrades equip the spy drone with better armor and a one-shot EMP attack."|
|- Deus Ex description|
- TECH ONE: The drone can take little damage and has a very light EMP attack.
- TECH TWO: The drone can take minor damage and has a light EMP attack.
- TECH THREE: The drone can take moderate damage and has a medium EMP attack.
- TECH FOUR: The drone can take heavy damage and has a strong EMP attack.
Energy Rate: 150 units/minute
The spying value of the drone is debatable, but the EMP attack is not. At level 3 JC can take out any bot with one attack from safe distance at the cost of nothing but bioenergy. Level 4 is an efficiency upgrade, it increases the speed of the drone thereby decreasing time-to-target and overall energy expenditure.
When the Spy Drone is activated, a tear-drop shaped robot appears in front of JC. A small screen on the left shows what the drone sees. While it is active, JC is immobile, but his view will move when the player moves the mouse.

- In the Hong Kong VersaLife facility. The augmentation canister can be found in the Versalife magnetic testing chamber in the level 1 laboratories.
- "Mark, We received that augmentation canister you were waiting on -- I had it put in suspension in the magnetic testing chamber, code 5878. Let me know once you get results of the test. Thanks, Dr. Lundquist" -- Datacube on Versalife
- In Paris. The augmentation canister can be found in the basement of Chateau DuClare.
- "Dear Nicolette, if you examine my suspension vault you'll find an item that I had to pay quite dearly to acquire; the vault code is 1784. I don't know what use it may be, but many people are quite prepared to kill for it. I originally obtained it for Morgan and if you find yourself in trouble, he may still be willing to bargain for it. He is a calculating man, not without compassion but still dangerous. Be careful, my daughter. Beth" -- Datacube on Chateau DuClare
