Working in partnership with UK Airports, Protegimus Protection and Jetset RC aim to provide robust drone security & airport solutions. We can detect, deter, and disrupt any unlawful activity on or around the immediate vicinity of airport grounds.
We can provide an overall specialist airport drone service package, covering the following areas: –
• Perimeter Protection – Ensuring the integrity of your perimeter stays intact from any unlawful incursion. Our drones can conduct a perimeter patrol in 90% less time than a foot patrol. Our drones can also conduct autonomous perimeter checks, initiating specific actions at set waypoints.
• Runway Inspections – Aimed at reducing OPEX costs by utilising drones to conduct runway inspections to highlight any damage and highlight potential risks before they become a threat to operations. Due to their rapid deployment and scanning capability, runways are not required to be offline for any length of time, disrupting operational capability. Images and videos captured can be studied in-depth and taken via live feed. It will reduce the risk of personnel having to be physically on the runway. Built-in thermal sensors allow for a complete and in-depth analysis of any hazards. We can utilise drones to check runways for FOD before the take-off and landing aircraft.
• Bird Scaring – As a preventative measure in reducing the likelihood of a bird strike during landing and take-off, our drones can be deployed to clear the immediate area of any wildlife. We achieve it by attaching a loudspeaker as part of the payload system. We can activate it using certain sounds. A valuable benefit of this is reducing risk to aircraft and personnel aboard. It does not require human intervention within a dangerous area.
• Fire Detection (Buildings & Aircraft) – Upon activation of a building fire alarm, drones can be deployed to search for heat signatures, highlight hot spots, and provide ‘safe routes’ out of an active building fire. In the event of a crash landing, drones can give ground fire crew direction where to concentrate the water supply to extinguish the fire in the quickest time possible. We can also provide brake checks on aircraft. Using thermal sensors to detect if brakes are overheating or any issues with the braking system.
