Fire and police departments are increasingly relying on drone surveillance to help map out critical situations, search for victims, survey damage, and even apprehend fugitives. These organizations need to ensure that only authorized drones are in their airspace, and civilian onlookers who may want to be a part of the action are promptly identified and alerted to ground their flights.
Dedrone recently participated in Verizon’s Operation Convergent Response, an event where industry insiders can see how first responders in public and private sectors can use advancements in Intelligent Networks (SDx), advanced security, the Internet of Things (IoT), smart and secure city solutions and autonomous systems to enhance crises response operations. With Verizon, we showcased Dedrone’s solution to first responders. DroneTracker secures airspace and enables first responders to focus on a crisis, such as a surveying a flood or monitoring active shooter/hostage situation, without concern of rogue or onlooker drones.
Proactive drone detection is the only solution on the market which can provide first responders an immediate view of any interruptions to their airspace. Without detection, operations will be interrupted and can distract or disrupt life-saving measures.
