Law Enforcement: Defending the Public from Malicious Drone Use

Improve situational awareness and enhance operational capabilities, by deploying passive counter-drone solutions that differentiate between friends and foes, respond to emergencies and keep the public safe.


Addressing Challenges of Law Enforcement Agencies

While drones represent nothing short of a game changer for law enforcement agencies, improving situational awareness and enhancing operational capabilities, the uncontrolled and unauthorized use of commercial drones flying near live operations, can compromise the privacy of individuals, and jeopardize public safety.
Law Enforcement Agencies are facing an increasing threat as drones are being used by criminals to:

  • 01

    Smuggle contraband

  • 02

    Monitor law enforcement organizations

  • 03

    Gather intelligence about bureaus and agencies

  • 04

    Aim at senior law enforcement personnel

To add to the complexity, law enforcement agencies have their own drones, which they use in various applications, such as pre-tactical deployment reconnaissance, patrol-led deployments, and many more.

Ensuring Public Safety with Counter Drones: How it Works

Counter-drone systems need to be able to differentiate between law-enforcement-authorized drones and unauthorized drones. This requirement alone rules out all of the traditional counter-drone technologies, as none of them allows for drone user-level identification; and this is only one of their limitations. 

  • Drone user-level identification
  • Autonomously detects, tracks, and identifies multiple drones approaching
  • Determines authorized or unauthorized drones
  • Takes over unauthorized drones when required
  • Disconnects unauthorized drone operators
  • Lands rogue drones safely in a predefined area

Law Enforcement Anti-Drone Detection: Identifying the Threat

Sentrycs Integrated counter-drone solutions are being used by law enforcement agencies as they present a long list of benefits that meet their specific operational needs: 

  • They have flexible configurations: portable and or vehicle-mounted
  • They can differentiate between authorized and unauthorized drones
  • They can identify drones’ remote IDs even when not broadcasted
  • They can locate the remote control’s last known GPS location
  • They do not interfere with any kind of communications or GNSS
  • They are entirely autonomous, hence can be operated by anyone and do not require an expert and months of training
  • They allow for remote operation and centralized management, separating DIT from an often more limited set of authorized mitigation personnel

Frequently Asked Questions

Firstly, we focus on the most frequently used drones that covers about 90% of those in use. We have a tremendous team of protocol analytics experts constantly researching and adding protocols. Moreover, most of our innovation is geared towards reducing time-to-market: we use AI-based tools and processes that are significantly shortening the time to support new protocols.

Unlike most counter-drone solution vendors, which require that each sensor is coupled with one control system, Sentrycs's solution permits multiple sensors for each control system with individual sensors costing less. This reduces the total cost of ownership, in addition to the very short setup and training time.

Sentrycs can be set up and operational in under 20 minutes... Also, could have a vehicle-mounted system already operational and would be running as soon as it arrives at the site.
