The number of unauthorized drones flying in is increasing, even though “No Drones” signs are posted everywhere. Stop them from flying into the airspace, breaching photography and video rights, and endangering the general public and players.
The event organizers of the Beach Volleyball Championship in Vienna, Austria, took a proactive approach to integrating airspace security technology by Dedrone into their event planning. They stayed on top of drone pilots by detecting rogue drones in advance and deploying security measures.
"The risks for prominent, attention-grabbing events are manifold. The security personnel must be prepared for all dangers - including drone strikes."
Dedrone RF Sensors detect drones up to a mile away and give early warning of drone-based threats, often even before the drone takes off.
Warnings and alerts are triggered automatically and can be sent to a mobile phone, monitoring platform, or any API-compatible system.
By incorporating sensors such as RF or video cameras, users can track the flight path of the drone and reveal the location of the pilot.
Active countermeasures, including RF and GPS jamming, can easily and quickly remove a drone before it gets too close to the facility.
Once a drone is disabled, it can be retrieved, confiscated, and examined to determine the nature of the threat.
Dedrone’s direction-finding technology locates the positions of drones and their pilots, adding important situational awareness of the airspace.
All alerts, flight paths, and video footage of drone threats are automatically recorded and catalogued. These are easily exported to share with law enforcement.
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.
