Surveillance is the close observation of a person, group of people, behaviours, activities, infrastructure, building etc for the purpose of managing, influencing, directing, or protecting. There are several different methods of surveillance, including GPS tracking, camera observation, stake-outs, data mining and profiling, and biometric surveillance among others. Traditional observational 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 can be performed using a helicopter; whilst this achieves the desired result, it is also very costly. Unmanned aircraft systems provide the ideal solution to the problems and limitations faced by other surveillance methods. Drone surveillance presents an easier, faster, and cheaper method of data collection, and a number of other key advantages. Drone planes can enter narrow and confined spaces, produce minimal noise, and can be equipped with night vision cameras and thermal sensors, allowing them to provide imagery that the human eye is unable to detect.
UAVs can quickly cover large and difficult-to-reach areas, reducing staff numbers and costs, and do not require much space for their operators.
How Drones can be used for Security ?
UAVs provide a rapid response and fast “eyes on” to the target area with live updates control stations while active waypoint tracking can be maintained based on the target parameters, like thermal signatures.
A key advantage of UAVs is its ability to collect imagery, ideally suited for reconnaissance or rapid situation awareness with application for ground force units to detect and monitor potential threats from a safe distance. UAVs in perimeter security do not only reduce the requirement for foot patrols by security guards, but also provide an additional oversight in instances where security guards are deployed to ensure their adherence to patrolling routines.
The speed, size, maneuverability and additional technologies make UAVs the perfect supplement to ground security teams seeking to perform monitoring tasks more quickly and efficiently. Drones have a competitive edge over stationary cameras, as intruders can’t easily step out of sight, and they can cover areas that are normally out of reach.
There’s so much drones can do to augment security. They are being used to look at perimeters and conduct constant surveillance over large areas. Drones can also be sent out as a response mechanism before personnel can respond and conduct an initial site assessment, so people know what they’re getting into before they get there. It’ll take a little bit for people to get used to what they can do with drones, and when regulations loosen up, it will open up a whole other world in the security industry.
Drones are getting smaller, and their battery and fuel sources are getting more efficient. You’re finding more drones with better camera systems and a smaller footprint. The key aspects that make people buy certain drones are flight time and payload capacity, but the best drone you have is the one you have with you.
