New perimeter protection systems combining detection sensors and drones allow for faster and more effective decision making. A new solution combines autonomous surveillance drones and network video to create a compelling solution for securing sensitive sites and critical infrastructure.
Skeyetech, a drone in the box solution developed by the French company Azur Drones enables remote 24/7 surveillance. Detection sensors developed by Axis Communications include thermal cameras and radars, and can effectively detect site intrusions.
The drone can take off automatically in the event of an alert in order to provide further intelligence. It can fly at speeds of 50 km/h and is fitted with HD optical and thermal cameras that can identify, interpret and monitor a situation.
“The link between the detection sensors and the autonomous drone is provided directly by the security software (Video Management System). It directly recovers the GPS coordinates for the alert zone detected by the Axis sensors and automatically sends the surveillance drone there under the simple supervision of the security agent,” according to Azur.
The drone’s reactivity and mobility make it an unequaled tool to monitor an intruder, prevent a crisis or manage a fluctuating situation. These systems are also cost-effective in terms of infrastructure as a few sensors and an autonomous drone are sufficient to secure sites of several hundred hectares.
