Drone Detection – Secured Success

During a recent large scale festival in the Netherlands with over 50.000 visitors, the organizers used a drone detection system supplied by Bavak Security Group to keep the airspace over the festival area safe.

The system, produced by Dedrone, consisted of multiple detectors with RF, optical and acoustics detection capabilities. The heart of the system is the easy to use DroneTracker software that showed the location of the drone and the location of the operator/pilot on a geofence map in the Event Control Center.

During the festival, a total of four different drones where detected within a three hours period. After detection, police officers were dispatched to the location of the pilot on the ground, with as result that two drones were confiscated by the police.

The so-called ‘hobbydrone pilots’ are often naive and have no idea about the potential risks they pose to populated areas. The amount of drones is growing rapidly. The problem of unwanted or even high threat drones is getting bigger every day. It is good to see that governments and event organizers are using this kind of technology to keep the airspace safe from rogue drones.

The message to hobby drone pilots is: Use your drone safely within the rules and regulations. You might face the risk of accidents or, like at this festival, you face the risk of losing your precious drone.
