Operate on a tight budget

Drones can be used to investigate situations in a more cost efficient manner than sending out a full intervention team.

How drone technology can be utilized by border patrol units

Follow up on suspicious activity

You could send a single border patrol drone out to investigate suspicious activity up to 50KM from the take-off point. This can save hours of work for agents as they won’t need to move physically. Heat camera’s ensures you can investigate suspicious activity both day and night.

Undocumented non-citizens, smugglers & other illegal trespassers can be detected before they even cross your borders.

Drones have the ability to monitor both sides of the border giving it the ability to detect illegal trespassing activity before it even takes places.

Search & rescue operations can be performed from a command center.

Drones enables you to perform search & rescue operations from a command center.  Features like thermal/IR nightvision enable you to perform operations around the clock.

Collecting evidence and following tracks of undocumented noncitizens

Interpreting and following tracks, marks, and other physical evidence becomes possible with high-resolution multispectral or RGB camera’s.
