Drone Defence: More on the latest Heropreneurs mentee

Established by one of the UK’s leading drone experts and former Army Officer, Drone Defence has unparalleled knowledge about the threat posed by commercially available drones and can offer advice on how to make locations more secure.

Drone Defence has developed their unique D.I.R.E.C.T. Action Plan™ to advise organizations on how to respond to the threat.

“Airports across the UK are reporting near misses on a weekly basis,” explains Gill.  “Prisons are in the same position, when a mobile phone is worth 20 times more on ‘the inside’ there will always be criminal elements willing to take the risk as the rewards are so great,” he says.

According to the company, this is just the tip of the iceberg.  For every incident that is detected, Gill claims that there are many more occurrences that the authorities simply don’t know about.

“The crime is remote and the chances of getting caught are very small,” explains Gill.  “The drone operator can but up to one mile away from the drone and fly into the danger area in the comfort that there is little chance that they are going to be caught,” he explains.

Drone Defence has developed a system to assess the risk posed to facilities and installations.  The Action Plan helps organisations to Detect, Interdict, Respond, Exploit, Communicate and can Train security staff to prevent unwanted drones.

Heropreneurs will be on hand to offer support and advice to a company that is going from strength-to-strength.
