Ryder Cup drone success could have implications for future sporting events


Delta Drone teams have successfully carried out a six-day security assignment at Le Golf National for the Ryder Cup.

The French-based company worked alongside the French national police and the Préfecture de Police of Paris who oversaw the assignment.

The police wanted to use this weekend to test and validate several new innovative security tools due to a large number of upcoming events scheduled to take place in France in the next few years.

The success of this weekend could mean drones are used as a security tool at the 2023 Rugby World Cup and the 2024 Olympics.

As with previous assignments, the solution implemented was based on the use, for several hours each day, of a tethered-drone system and a permanent video feed to the security control centre in order to facilitate real-time management of vehicle and visitor traffic flows.

Assignment manager and head of Delta Drone’s intelligent security system, Didier Ferrara, said: “With the Ryder Cup, we have truly reached a new level as our work here has piqued the interest of a great many observers from around the world. The Ryder Cup is a major international reference that will allow us to have a very healthy order book in 2019.”
