Posted on March 22, 2018 By

Securus Technologies launched their pilot programs which are created to detect drone activities that occur within correctional institutions.

Officials from correction facilities found out that drones are being utilized to ferry in illegal contrabands of various nature into prisons such as weapons, drugs, and cell phones. The drone detection technology is new, but the different teams at Securus Technologies are working together with various partners who specialize in technology to be able to discern the requirements on how to implement, install, and engineer pilot programs on drone detection.

Resembling all forms of new technology, the drone detection technology will get better over time after adequate resources, investment, and trials have been done to improve it. Securus collaborates closely with officials from correction facilities who are likewise determined to stop the delivery of dangerous contrabands through drone transport.

The drone detection utilizes a DAS or digital antennae structure which is more or less the same as the WCS (wireless containment solution). A spokesman for Securus Technologies said that the company’s experience in investigative systems had assisted them to collaborate with their partners in detection to enhance the drone detection technology.

The issue of drones in correctional facilities poses a severe danger to the security of correction officers as well as other inmates who could get hurt and abused because of the contraband that was transported inside the facility.

These people or groups will incorporate means and ways to get contraband goods into the hands of inmates. So, the presence of a drone detection technology is a significant means to address the issue for the safety of people.
