“IN 2016 DRONE AND PLANE NEAR MISSES AND OTHER AIRPORT AIRSPACE VIOLATIONS SURGED 46% HIGHER THEN THE PREVIOUS YEAR.”

“OVER 50% OF ALL REPORTED AIRCRAFT & DRONE NEAR MISSES OCCUR WITHING FIVE MILES OF AN AIRPORT.”

“THE AVERAGE DISTANCE FROM AN AIRPORT OF REPORTED AIRCRAFT & DRONE NEAR MISSES WAS 6.46 MILES.”

“THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION REVEALS THERE ARE ON AVERAGE 3.5 AIRCRAFT/DRONE NEAR MISSES TAKING PLACE EVERYDAY.”

“FROM FEBRUARY 2016 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2016, THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION RECEIVED 1,274 REPORTS OF DRONES FLYING TOO CLOSE TO AIRCRAFT, PEOPLE OR AIRPORT FACILITIES.”

Airports/Seaports

Airports and Seaports are a vital part of our countries Critical Infrastructure. Because of their coastal location, Seaports are under threat from both land based and marine based drones, as nearly 90% of all international commerce is delivered via boat. Most modern seaports span large geographic areas that are difficult to secure by traditional methods.

Airports and private and commercial aircraft of all kinds are under constant threat of drones interfering with air traffic at or near airports. Drones are often reported flying in or near the inbound or outbound flight paths of commercial and private aircraft. Both Airports & Seaports need to have a strong drone defense system in place to keep them secure from drones.

Military

Terrorist groups are using drones to gather battlefield intelligence on U.S. and allied military personnel in both Iraq and Afghanistan. These terrorist groups are using the same drones to launch airborne attacks on U.S. and allied military forces. These terrorist groups arm drones with  hand grenades, bomblets, chemical weapons and other types of explosives, then drop these devices from the drones onto military personnel as well as civilians.

Government Buildings

Government buildings are easy targets for criminals and terrorists alike. Criminals look at government buildings as representing the government, which in turn makes them a prime target for theft, hacking, vandalism, and other forms of criminal activities that can be done by drones.  All levels of government buildings need to have a strong level of drone defense to ensure they are secure from the activities of nefarious drone operators.

Law Enforcement

Law enforcement agencies around the world need to have strong drone defense systems at their disposal. Whether it is to secure crime scenes, secure and cover SWAT or undercover police activity, or other law enforcement activities. Many criminal organizations are using drones as security tools to surveil areas where they conduct their criminal activity.  Our drone denial system can be easily and discreetly deployed by field officers to deny drones access to the airspace above any specific area of interest.

Correctional Facilities

Criminal organizations use commercially available drones to smuggle drugs, cell phones, and other contraband into prisons all over the United States, as well as the rest of the world. Some of these attempts are discovered because the drones fail to cross over the prison security fence line and crash. There have been many more instances where drones were able to fly over a prison fence, were unloaded by prisoners, and then managed to fly back unnoticed. Every correctional facility worldwide needs to have a strong drone defense system in place to keep them secure from drones accessing their facilities.

Fire Departments

Illegal drone activity at or near active fire scenes are a serious risk to the safety of fire department personnel. There is an increase in people using drones to attempt to video tape fire agencies fighting fires, which puts the safety and security of the fire department personnel in danger.  Our drone denial system can be easily and quickly deployed by fire departments to deny drone access to the airspace above any specific fire or location of interest.

Critical Infrastructure

Critical Infrastructure sectors are extremely vital to the security, health and safety of every citizen of every country. Any interruption of service, or attack on any critical infrastructure facility would cause debilitating economic and public safety issues.  All critical infrastructure facilities need a strong level of drone defense to ensure they are secure from the activities of nefarious drone operators.

Utility Stations

Utility stations are extremely vulnerable to both cyber and physical attacks.  Any interruption of service, or attack on any utility station would cause devastating public safety issues for the affected communities. All utility station facilities need to have a strong  drone defense system in place to ensure they are secure from the activities of nefarious drone operators.

Sports Stadiums

Illegal drones pose a security risk to sports stadiums.  The FAA prohibits drones from being flown within 3 nautical miles of most sporting stadiums. Even though this law is in effect, it does not deter people who have criminal or terrorist intent. The FAA ban is only in effect when sporting events are happening at the stadiums. Sports stadiums should have a strong drone denial system in place to ensure their stadium and occupants are secure at all times.

College Campuses

College campuses have a duty to protect its students from danger and harm. Drones present a number of concerns, including privacy, security, as well as several other risk management concerns. Most college campuses have drone regulations in place, however; not all students, or non-students follow these rules. Having an active drone denial system in place at college campuses can ensure drones will not be flying on their campuses or sports fields.  This will allow campus law enforcement to focus their attention on other security and safety concerns.

Public Events

Large public events and gatherings are vulnerable to nefarious drone activity.  Drones present a number of concerns, including privacy, security, and other safety and risk management concerns. Having an active drone denial system in place at large public events will ensure drones will not be able to access the airspace over and around the public events.  This will allow law enforcement to focus their attention on other security and safety concerns.
