DRONES FOR CIVIL SECURITY
In today’s world, civil security is of major importance. In protecting the public from threats, appropriate air support can be a decisive advantage.
PREVENTION AND DRONE SURVEILLANCE
Helicopters can be an important source of support to teams on the ground. However, as a form of air support they are expensive and can take time to be ready for engagement. The drone range is a quicker, more cost-effective and just as successful alternative.
One particular advantage of the drone is the ease with which they can be used. It takes only a short time to learn how to steer these aerial platforms, thereby saving on costly training programmes. Moreover, a drone can be instantly ready for action, allowing for immediate air support.
Using various payloads, drones can be deployed in any situation. For example, with a laser scanner a comprehensive recording of the scene of a traffic accident can be made, which simplifies the drawing up of the accident report.
