Case Study VIPs / Olympics 2016
DroneTracker Protected Royal Family of QATAR
During the Olympic Games in Rio, the Royal Family of Qatar stayed in a private residence surrounded by water. Security wanted to make sure that no intruders would fly in from the air, and searched for a way to protect the Royal Family’s privacy against drones. This was all the more important, because the residence was located in an area of Rio de Janeiro where many journalists were working and looking for stories.
Computrade and Max Cultura, strategic Dedrone partners in Brazil, responded by installing the DroneTracker system at the residence. Two DroneTracker Multi-Sensors were mounted to facades of the building, monitoring the sky around the clock with cameras, microphones and Wi-Fi sensors. The system worked fully automatically, totaling 720 hours of effective protection of the airspace of the residence.
Lead Royal Family to Safety
In case of a drone alert, security would lead the members of the Royal Family into the house quickly.
Windows and doors were closed until the drone left.
Search for Pilot
Security looked for the pilot.
The Installation of the DroneTracker
Computrade, Max Cultura, and Dedrone experts planned the installation of the Multi Sensors so they would achieve a maximum coverage of the site.
Technicians from Computrade affixed the Multi Sensors to the walls and installed the cables to connect them with each other and a computer.
DroneTracker sensors were configured and adjusted to the special conditions of the surroundings – noise, light etc. The alert settings were configured so that security would receive them via SMS.
During the 30 days of installment, DroneTracker detected no less than 18 drones, among them several DJIs and a Parrot AR.
