Leveraging Drones for Campus Events
Jan 21, 2021
Most autumn weekends on college campuses,tens of thousands of college students, family members, and overzealous sports fans pack themselves into stadiums. On these bustling days, the increased risk from crowded areas, congested traffic, and crazed fans heightens the level of security needed to maintain order. With Axon Air technology, add an extra layer of security to sporting events by deploying an unmanned aircraft that can act as en extra eye in the sky while live streaming and seamlessly uploading video into Axon Evidence.
Axon partners with both DJI, a global leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, and Fotokite, a service provider of actively tethered drone solutions and public safety software tools, to ensure your department is equipped with the best possible tools. For large events, the Fotokite system offers the perfect aerial view for situational awareness with fully autonomous flight and continuous power so you can maintain eyes in the sky for as long as needed. With these partnerships, we’ve combined industry-leading hardware with the Axon network to securely live stream real time video to Axon Respond and upload drone video and flight logs into Axon Evidence.
Using Axon Air,officers can monitor traffic and secure large crowds enabled with real-time awareness that is not possible when limited to the ground. If an incident occurs, your unmanned aircraft can be on the scene in seconds with a full view of the situation before your officers arrive. With the live streaming technology, command staff can feed information to the officers on the scene for a swift and successful conflict resolution. All of these capabilities are possible during evening games too, by employing night vision to retain a perfect view.
The capabilities of our drone technology can also extend to concerts, move-in days, and other large-scale events. Moreover, when a campus sweep is necessary, it can be completed quickly with fewer patrol officers with Axon Air. Drones and integrated management software can be utilized in a variety of ways and save your department valuable time and resources, and all your video can be stored in one, secure place.
With Axon Air technology, your department canprovide superior situational awareness and tactical support for your command staff and your officers in the field.Contact us today to get started or learn more.
