The Reality of Drone Risk
Drones and UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) have emerged as one of the leading security and safety threats to a range of vulnerable organisations.
In Australia drones have:
- Provided surveillance for break-ins, drug deals and illegal activities.
- Dropped contraband into prisons and high-security facilities.
- Flew dangerously over and crashed into crowds causing injury.
- Flew into and near aircraft causing delays and unrest.
- Collected competitor intel, such as sports team training performance & strategy.
Public drone risk is increasing as technology improves and pricing reduces in light of competition. A drone risk assessment often includes temporary drone detection to identify the reality of drone activity in your area. A vulnerability assessment and risk analysis identifies the extent of the problem, the potential cost to you of legal/illegal drone operation in your area and the cost to manage this risk.
Brassets provide site assessments that review organisational policy, procedure and vulnerability.
Whilst emerging technologies provide new opportunities and capabilities, they also create new vulnerabilities and risks to the health and safety of your personnel. While the security and profitability of your organisation suffers. Brassets Group has partnered with the world’s leading drone detection experts to provide world-class detection and mitigation management solutions to the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
Key industries include:
- Correctional Institutions (Prisons)
- Venues and Stadiums
- Electricity providers
- High-Security locations and events
Unauthorised intrusion underwater is an emerging, specialised technology field. Underwater Diver and ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) detection systems can differentiate between fish, sharks, divers and ROV’s generating an alert immediately.
Brassets Group has strong technology partnerships with some of the world’s leading providers of specialised underwater intrusion systems used in:
- Oil Rigs
- Shipping Companies
- Naval Applications
- Cruise Ship Companies
- Government Sites
- Critical Infrastructure
Historically, stadiums and venues have been the targets of a wide range of risks, both purposeful and accidental. These have only become more of a potential risk with the advent and wide adoption of drone technology.
From sports teams being spied upon, to the risk of terrorism or accidental drones crashing into crowds, the risk is real.
These risks to stadiums and venues include:
- Terrorism surveillance and implementation
- Celebrity stalking & Paparazzi
- Unauthorised recording and privacy intrusion
- Protesters & public nuisance
One of the greatest risks to critical infrastructure is accidental drone landing in a substation and a child or parent entering the facility to retrieve the drone. The risks of this activity may include the risk of electrocution and damage to infrastructure.
Drones can also be used to remotely target critical infrastructures such as terminals and substations. Drone detection systems can provide early detection of terrorist/subversive surveillance in the planning stages enabling counteractions to mitigate future risk.
Airports and critical infrastructure require elevated drone detection solutions with 99% drone activity detection or greater as the minimum standard. Brassets provide highly accurate passive drone detection systems and where legislation allows, we provide the ability to disable or send the drone back to the operator. Tracking systems can identify the drone, the operator and their location if required. Drone swarms are easily managed with this military-grade technology.
Australia, like the rest of the world, have experienced drones used to deliver contraband to prisoners that are incarcerated. Drone detection systems should not only provide an alert but also allow security personnel/law enforcement to locate the operator of the drone.
Drone systems can also provide geofenced protection ensuring intrusion does not occur. (Pending CASA regulations in the future)
