A revolution in aptitude and cost saving
Drone technology is simply erasing traditional surveillance methods and expanding their scope and skills at an exponential rate.
Large scale surveillance (of any kind) is expensive and often, not effective. High quality commercial drones have completely re-energised and indeed, revolutionised surveillance operations with tools that are not only cost effective, but can carry out tasks traditional surveillance could only dream of.
Traditional automated ground surveillance methods are typically limited by the stationary nature of the camera, which is usually handled manually or fixed upon a tripod or other structure. Aerial surveillance on the other hand has been traditionally performed using a helicopter or other manned aircraft. Clearly very, very costly, often inaccurate and without the ability to get close to the target subject.
In simple terms drones have and continue to usurp traditional surveillance methods and it’s only just the beginning!
Changing the fundamental nature of surveillance & security operations
Crime and public safety
Drone technology allows surveillance and security teams to instantly assess people of interest, while high-resolution image capture provides unparalleled detail in post-inspection analysis.
Gathering intelligence safely
A drone’s ability to collect imagery and data - specifically in reconnaissance or rapid activity situations - allows them to detect and monitor potential threats with ground force units at a safe distance.
Drone use in perimeter security not only reduces the requirement for security foot patrols, but provides confirmation that deployed security guards are undertaking their patrolling routines.
