Challenge

Police in the Canton of Graubünden, where the forum was held, were responsible for the security of over 2,500 attendees, including heads of state or government, cabinet ministers, ambassadors, and heads or senior officials of international organizations. Due to the high-profile nature of the event and its participants, security requirements were extremely strict.

Solution

Dedrone’s system monitored critical airspace above the area of operations in real-time. Dedrone’s early warning capabilities provided early warning, giving authorities time to react and assess any potential threat. By integrating drone jamming technology from HP Wüst as a defense, authorities were prepared to intervene and directly stop any drone deemed to be a threat.

Result

Dedrone’s solution made an important contribution to the security of leading international experts from the worlds of business, politics, culture, and media. The safety and security of all participants was ensured, and the operations and security of the event were successful.
