Always keep track and observe an event or object from the air - and at a manageable cost? Surveillance drones offer this possibility.
Drones are perfect for large open spaces or factory premises, because a bird's-eye view of the terrain can provide clarity and considerably simplify the surveillance work and substantially increase the safety of the task forces. Several kilometres of visibility are possible depending on the weather.
However, the efficient use of drone systems within the framework of the legal conditions places special demands on the executing company: the operation outside the pilot's range is generally forbidden; overflight bans apply, for example, to crowds (events), hospitals or prisons.
The non-compliance with a 1.5 kilometer protection zone around international airports, or commercial use without flight allowance is more than just a regulatory offense. Despite these "restrictions", the careful use of drones offers a suitable measure to increase safety in many areas.
We would like to answer the often asked question "security guard OR drone": a modern alarm system never replaces the security personnel; rather their "sensors" enhance safety, while the drone supports the Deescalation security staff as a "flying eye". Therefore, the use of a drone can only ever be an integral part of a comprehensive security concept.
Drone use for work safety
Another drone application is the support in inspection and control of technical equipment, such as Inspection flights on industrial sites (roofs, chimneys or turbines), pipe leak inspection or thermographic status checks.
amazon and DHL are testing the parcel delivery via drone, and the inspection of industrial equipment improves occupational safety. Are drones therefore only to be evaluated positively in terms of safety? Unfortunately, no! Drones are ideal tools for industrial spies and saboteurs.
Drones fly unnoticed over fences and reach strictly protected areas. There are many ways to cause damage, because the small, inconspicuous aircraft can also transport equipment or materials into or out of heavily guarded terrain, photograph prototypes, manipulate communication channels, override sensitive systems, and so on. In the old days, the perimeter security ended on the fence crown or the anti-scaling protection, but this is no longer the case with the widespread use of drones. The airspace above must now also be included in a contemporary security concept.
Commercially available drones are easy to use, easy to procure and they are also inexpensive. In the future each organizer must also consider the security of the airspace over his event and include it into his the security concepts. Scenarios should consider targeted attacks as well as attacks that are just for fun and out-of-control hobby equipment.
Drones ignore privacy and make it easy for paparazzi to photograph or film people in their private retreats. By using suitable technology, we know how to prevent this and, in the case of people with an increased need for protection, supplement the security systems with drone protection.
