Correctional Facilities

Correctional facilities face a new threat: contraband delivered by drones. Contraband isn’t new, but drones are already being exploited in prisons and jails around the world. Even though correctional facilities have robust physical security infrastructure, drones can easily bypass even the highest security installations by simply flying over the top into a facility.

Solution Overview

dedrone Solutions

  • Detect drones before they fly over a facility
  • Trigger alerts to staff automatically
  • Capture and record forensic evidence
  • Augment existing video surveillance installations
  • Integrate into existing physical security systems

Case Study

Kentucky DOC

Kentucky Department of Corrections is getting ahead of drone threats, including contraband delivery and spying, with Dedrone technology.

After deploying Dedrone, the opportunity for contraband delivery is greatly reduced. The prison receives valuable data on drone activities on the site, for example number of drone intrusions, times, drone models, recurring drones. Searches are performed selectively,  greatly facilitating the work of staff.

How Dedrone Can Help

Detect drone

DedroneSensors detect drones up to 5 km away and give early warning of drone-based threats, often even before the drone takes off.

Alert Security Teams

Warnings and alerts are triggered automatically and can be sent to a mobile phone, monitoring platform, or any API-compatible system.

Seize Contraband

By knowing exactly when and where a rogue drone intrudes, authorities can seize any contraband the drone drops.

Capture drone

Once a drone is disabled, it can be retrieved, confiscated, and examined to determine the nature of the threat.

Track drone

By incorporating DedroneSensors and other sensors, such as camera, users can track the flight path of the drone and reveal the location of the pilot.

Provide evidence

All alerts, flight paths, and video footage of drone threats are automatically recorded and catalogued. These are easily exported to share with law enforcement.

Locate and arrest pilot

Dedrone’s direction-finding technology locates the positions of drones and their pilots, adding important situational awareness of the airspace.

Harden Security

Drones often look for security gaps, on both physical and IT infrastructure. By identifying potential areas of exploit, teams can examine their security for potential gaps.
