The Drone Problem
Prison Security Enforcement Services face challenges from smugglers using drones to deliver drugs, weapons, cell phones and other contraband onto facility grounds.
Prisons may have elaborate security provisions on the ground such as high walls with razor wire, security cameras, guard dogs and spotters but above the fence the airspace is completely unprotected. As a result, drone detection is critical to maintaining the highest standard of security.
Reports of drones as a mechanism to deliver such items is now common and regularly reported in the news.
Airport Security Services are currently witnessing increasing numbers of incidents involving drones entering into both Civilian and Military airspace with risks of collision causing possible damage to aircraft and even a catastrophic air disaster.
Flight delays and even airport closures are not unheard of due to drone activity. Countless stories have been appearing in the news recently regarding drone activity in both Military and Civilian airspace, citing safety concerns for passenger aircraft and disruption of airline operations.
With this marked increase in drone sightings, airport operators are considering how to approach safety measures and determine the additional risks that drones pose to their overall security program.
Airport officials are acutely aware of the dangers drones pose to their airspace. However, there is a gap of knowledge and understanding of the intention of drones within physical grounds of airports, leaving questionable security concerns.
