Neptune Terminals strives to be the safety leader in the bulk export industry, and we are continually assessing new opportunities to advance and strengthen our operational security, including protecting our lower airspace against drone threats. Unauthorized drones at Neptune Terminals threaten the safety of our workers, our facilities, and daily operations. With the Dedrone counter-drone system, we can quantify our drone threat and apply DroneTracker analytics to better understand the vulnerabilities to our lower airspace. We look forward to advancing our airspace security program this year with additional Dedrone technology, and ensuring our operations remain secure from interruptions.
Unauthorized drones at Neptune Terminals pose a risk to the physical safety of workers and the security of operations, and increase the possibility of facility damage.
With a minimal investment, Neptune Terminals, in partnership with Skylock, took the first step and installed Dedrone’s RF-100. As a Dedrone technology partner,Skylock facilitated the installation and training of Neptune Terminal’s new Dedrone system. This plug and play drone detection technology has allowed Neptune Terminals to collect accurate data, quantify unwanted drone activity in their airspace, and better understand their vulnerability to drones.
As a result of taking the first step to secure their airspace, Neptune Terminals confirmed the level of drone activity in their airspace. Now that they have a baseline of DroneTracker data, Neptune Terminals can identify patterns in drone activity and help prioritize a more robust Dedrone drone detection solution. Neptune Terminals’ data-driven approach has allowed them to work with operation and security leadership to establish immediate and long-term airspace security protocols. As they collect more data, their vulnerability to drones will continue to reveal itself, allowing them to make data-driven decisions, develop a complete counter-drone technology strategy, expand their current capabilities, and increase safety and security for their employees and operations.
