The Emergence Of Drone Detection Technology
Recently the company just had major technology breakthrough in drone detection technology. The company has been focused on advancing drone detection at the correction facilities they service. The technology is designed to protect correction facilities against inmate families and friends using drone technology to send contraband, cellphones, drugs and weapons into their facilities via a drone drop off.
While the technology is up and coming, the company has made major strides in its creation. The detection devices for correction facilities uses a Digital Antennae Structure (DAS). This technology is parallel to Securus’ Wireless Containment Solution and is designed to be a frontline defense to drone detection.
The Drone Defense and Protection devices are in the trial stages. It is expected they will be making some adjustments to their technology before widespread manufacturing, sales and distribution will begin. They are currently working with prototypes for evaluation.
The current results from the trials have been very positive and have shed light on areas where these devices need to be adjusted. The trials have also showed the positive results of the technology through successful detection in several facilities. Since illegal contraband is a serious concern for correction facilities to provide safety for: the facilities, the personal and the prisoners, having proper protection is critical. While drone technology is still emerging, it is essential to be ahead of this technology with ways to battle the emerging concern. Today, drones have started to become a more pervasive threat to all correction facilities in the country.
