2018 Global Economic Meeting

The high-profile annual meeting took place in Davos, Switzerland from January 23th to 26th, 2018.
Our manufacturers Security Technology was deployed for the second year in a row.

The annual event, with over 3000 attendees is headlined by the world’s most compelling politicians, scientists, and leaders, who have security teams dedicated to every aspect of their travel. The police of the Canton of Graubündenm are responsible for the security of their attendees recognized the risks that drones pose, and for the second year in a row, drone detection technology to protect their airspace.

The installation incorporated Drone detection sensors and other passive sensors including cameras and microphones. Data collected was analysed through DroneTracker software, which uses advanced, machine-learning algorithms, enabling security personnel to automatically and reliably detect the difference between drones and other moving objects in the airspace. The airspace was monitored in real time and, if necessary, police could intervene and stop a drone threat at an early stage. For that, drone defeat technology was integrated into the security solution.


Suffolk County Correctional Facility

The Suffolk County Correctional System is one of the largest local jail systems in the state of New York.

Like all prisons, Suffolk County jail has elaborate security provisions on the ground — high walls with razor wire, security cameras, spots etc. — but above the fence the airspace was completely unprotected.Prison authorities wanted to take action and protect their facility against aerial intrusions by drones before an incident happened. It’s critical to prevent the dropping of contraband into the inner courtyards at anytime, day or night. Objects dropped and gathered by inmates pose a serious threat to other inmates and prison employees.

From consultations and reviews with the County Jail, the most critical areas for drone intrusions were identifed. An implemetation plan was devised with an optimal set-up and alignment of sensors for maximum coverage of the site.

Attempts to smuggle drugs, mobile phones, or even delivery of weapons with drones remain a concern, but the opportunity for such activity is now greatly reduced. The prison receives valuable data on drone activities on the site, for example number of drone intrusions, times, drone models, recurring drones. Searches can be carried out selectively, which greatly facilitates the work of staff.
