The drone industry has grown tremendously over years. It was a new, emerging industry at first, but it expanded swiftly to become rather important. Survey reports estimate that by 2025, the market value of Chinese civilian drones alone will be $10.7 billion, with roughly $6.4 billion going toward the industrial sector, nearly $2.9 billion going toward the preservation of agricultural and forestry plants, and roughly $2.2 billion going toward security.
Currently, drones with cameras like Ruko F11 PRO are often used in industries like agriculture, the electric power sector, logistics, and so on. Drones suitable for niche scenarios are increasingly coming off the production line, promoting the rapid iteration and development of the drone industry. Drones equipped with cameras have also made three-dimensional security a reality, extending the application field of security monitoring from the ground to the air, from fixed monitoring to mobile monitoring. With the continuous integration of drones and security technology, drones are getting more and more deeply into the security industry. In this article, let’s explore the applications of drones in the security field.
Security Drone Applications
- Police Security
In recent years, drones as a new type of police equipment, have been widely used in public security agencies. The drone uses a high-definition camera it equips to take continued pictures and obtain image data. If an emergency occurs, the drone can quickly arrive at the real-time scene for video transmission, allowing the commander to make scientific decisions and judgments, which greatly improves the work efficiency and safety of the police departments.
- Emergency Rescue
When an emergency occurs, the efficiency of manual search and rescue is definitely not enough, manual search and rescue will also have certain personal safety risks, and drones equipped with infrared thermal imaging cameras have become an essential magic weapon for the rescue team. Fire scene investigation is the most typical application of drones in emergency rescue. Through various functional modules inside the drone, information such as temperature, smoke, and direction of the fire scene is collected, which can provide more intuitive feedback on the specific conditions of the fire scene and assist in firefighting and rescue work.
- Traffic Surveillance
Drones can also be used to monitor traffic flow, patrol over major roads, and monitor traffic flow on road sections, so that the command center can understand road traffic conditions in real time, grasp changes in traffic flow, and take timely and effective measures to eliminate congestion and ensure smooth flow, helping the public security Urban traffic control departments work together to solve stubborn traffic problems in large and medium-sized cities. This will also greatly reduce the deployment and workload of traffic police personnel, allowing technology and automation to further penetrate into daily work.
- Anti-Terrorism and Emergency Response
In large-scale events, in addition to using drones for aerial monitoring to grasp the dynamics of the scene in real time, and rationally deploy police forces to prevent accidents such as crowd stampedes, aerial propaganda tools can also be used to provide guidance and command on the ground, and broadcast guidance can be issued in a timely manner; Searchlights can also be mounted to provide uninterrupted illumination of local areas to prevent panic and stampedes caused by darkness.
The mobile nature of these drone models is a great advantage, especially in assisting law enforcers in emergencies. The drone can contain a multi-purpose thrower to throw tear bombs, smoke bombs, fuse bombs, and fire extinguishers among others to help police manage emergencies while boosting the working speed and safety of the police.
The Market Demand for Security Drones Is Huge
In the past, drones were called “photography tools” or “entertainment toys”, and the development of the current clever combination of drones and security is the inevitable result of technological development and market demand.
Once a drone is equipped with a camera, drone surveillance becomes mobile, efficient, and three-dimensional. It can carry out large-scale aerial photography at low cost and achieve an aerial bird’s-eye view, making the scope of video surveillance wider. This advantage has led to more and more drones being used in the fields of security and public safety, and their applications will surely become wider in the future.
For security and public safety scenario applications, drones have unique advantages and can effectively solve industry pain points in certain special application fields. For example, when disasters or emergencies occur, rescue workers cannot enter the disaster area or accident scene. At this time, the drone can well assume the important task of first rescue, fly to the scene as soon as possible, and shoot and transmit back video footage of the accident scene, allowing search and rescue personnel to plan and implement rescue. In the future, security drones will surely have greater market demand, their application scope will become wider and wider than ever before, and their potential is undoubtedly huge.
Security Drone Integration
The security industry is an important safety and security industry that maintains national security and social stability. Based on the actual needs of public security businesses and public safety, unmanned systems represented by drones have been widely used in the security industry in recent years, especially when it comes to the public security business, covering public security management, traffic inspections, event security, and reconnaissance. In business fields such as police arrest, border patrol, and emergency rescue, drones have shown very distinct advantages. While meeting the practical application of public security, they have also brought new technological changes and application innovations to the security industry.
At present, public security departments in various places have established police drone-flying teams. Unmanned systems represented by drones have played an increasingly important and unique role in helping local police build a three-dimensional social security prevention and control system and build smart public security.
As a means of maintaining public security, security drones will be further integrated into all aspects of public security and production and life in the future. Let us look forward to the coming era of “big security”!
