Today, Drone Tech UAS announced the addition of Drone Go Home (DGH) drone detection solutions to Drone Tech UAS services and solutions portfolio to help correctional facilities use and defend against drones.
The addition of DGH advanced, legal RF drone detection solutions to the Drone Tech UAS suite of products and training services ensures correctional facilities will learn how to use drones to improve their operations, defend against drones bringing contraband into their facilities, and operate within FAA, FCC, and DOJ laws.
Quickly advancing drone technology and falling prices create both opportunity and threat for correctional facilities. Inmates are working with outside contacts to use drones to deliver drugs, weapons, porn, cell phones, cigarettes and other contraband.
While a consumer can buy a drone and fly it immediately, by law correctional facilities and commercial entities must have trained, FAA Part 107 certified pilots to use drones to conduct patrols. Surprisingly, no entity other than the US federal government can legally take any action to affect a drone in flight unless there is an immediate potential personal threat.
RF drone detection technologies that “decode” communications to detect and locate drones and pilots violate federal wiretapping laws. Any electronic action taken against a drone communication network also violates FCC regulations.
“We chose to add DGH’s cutting edge drone detection solution to our services to ensure correctional facilities can keep contraband out of their facilities and will not inadvertently violate any government regulations.” said Tony Reid, CEO of Drone Tech UAS.
“Since DGH detects and locates drones and ground controllers based on physical RF signals, never decoding the communication stream, it does not violate the wiretapping laws. Additionally, unlike other technology approaches, RF detection operates well in all weather, lighting, sound and background clutter environments.” Said Linda Ziemba, CEO
