DRONES TO BE THE AERIAL SECURITY FORCE OF THE FUTURE - Security Guards To Become Obsolete?
Security officials, police and legal experts from around the world are gathered in London for a global conference on tackling the threats posed to prisons, airports, nuclear facilities and other infrastructure by consumer drones.
The Countering Drones conference, which organisers describe as the first of its kind, reflects concerns that increasingly high-powered and affordable models of drones are posing new and wide-ranging security challenges for police and other protection forces.
Nearly 80% of people surveyed by Defence IQ, the conference organisers, said they believed a major security incident involving drones in civilian airspace was strongly likely or almost certain to happen in the next five years.
Rise of the drones: from policing the streets to painting your house
In some areas, such as at airports and in prisons, drones are already causing widespread disruption, but the conference also highlights areas such as at sporting events and seaports, where threats posed by unmanned aircraft are still emerging. We woke up before dawn and caught the first train to Waterloo, so we could capture some aerial footage in the early morning London light with no one around. We were interested in using a drone to get a vantage point that no rooftop could offer, looking down on the under-renovation South Bank Tower.
Lifting off from a grassy, flat expanse next to the river Thames, we quickly vaulted to the height of a 30-storey building and began capturing slow, sweeping images from a bird’s-eye view. But then a security guard emerged from the building and ran towards us. “You can’t fly that here,” he yelled.
We were keeping the drone within our line of sight, as per Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulations, and my co-flyer Adam Fish responded: “Sorry but we can. We checked the regs and we are 50 metres from the building, and this isn’t a congested area.”
Urban airspace is being radically reshaped by the proliferation of drones – a process which is quickly slicing the air into private strips. Urban citizens are at risk of losing access to a valuable public resource as corporations are given prioritisation in the skies above our heads. Drone Security Guard Scolds Intruders from the Sky
An unarmed, unmanned aircraft that shines bright lights and broadcasts warning messages is intended to be cheaper than human guards. by Tom Simonite September 20, 2016
Aptonomy’s drone carries a spotlight to light up intruders so it can capture video footage.
The drone turned slowly with a loud buzzing sound, red and blue lights flashing, and hit me right in the eyes with a spotlight. “Security has been notified,” boomed a smooth voice from the aircraft’s twin loudspeakers. “This area is secured.” Drone Drones Secure Security CCTV "Future tech" Tech Technology "security Guard" DJI "DJI Phantom 4 Pro" App Application Auto autonomous ID Identity tracking GPS "GPS Tracking" Location Sensor Computer "private security" humanity alert fence alarm camera "live feed" job jobs privacy news development sky aerial "aerial video" video "video camera" "elite nwo agenda"
Startup Aptonomy thinks this experience can keep intruders out of factories, warehouses, and other facilities more cheaply than human guards can and more effectively than cameras and alarms.
I received the drone security guard treatment in a demonstration at the company’s testing area on Treasure Island, an old naval base in San Francisco Bay. Cofounder Mihail Pivtoraiko says his drones will be ready to go on patrol next year.

Each drone is just over a meter across and is built by adding custom electronics and sensors to an eight-propeller craft marketed for aerial photography. As well as a control system, Aptonomy adds blue and red lights, and a white spotlight and two loudspeakers for confronting intruders. The drone captures video using conventional and night vision cameras. A thermal camera, which makes it easy to spot people from a long distance, will be added soon.
