Drone detection systems will be vital to protecting people at the upcoming World Cup, music festivals and other high-profile events this summer.
That’s according to commercial drone security expert, COPTRZ, which provides a range of services for the industry.
Drone detection facilities allow law enforcement agencies to track potential drone’s unique ‘licence plates’.
Drones and their pilots can also be located and key data provided with the aim of preventing drone accidents.
Managing director and founder of COPTRZ, Steve Coulson, believes that systems like this will be “particularly prominent over the summer with festivals, and the upcoming World Cup needing to be protected”, he told a local newspaper.
He told Coventry Live: “It’s fantastic that this technology is now available for law enforcement agencies.
“With the amount of people that gather at festivals being in there 10s of thousands and the rapid rise of the drone industry, it is key for law enforcement agencies to have drone detection systems as part of their arsenal.”
Systems have been used a number of high profile events which introduced no-fly zones to protect crowds, including the Royal Wedding this month.
