USE CASE PREVIEW

With more than 300 000 expected attendees, the French National Police needed a flexible solution to secure the site and manage the crowd flows throughout the entire week, with the ability to zoom in on specific elements and be able to follow a target at all time.

Secured tethered flight: While tethered to the station through a Kevlar reinforced micro-tether, the drone maintained a safe flight profile, operating at average heights of 55m. Thanks to this, the French Civil Aviation granted Delta Drone and the French Police with the unique UAV flight authorization of the whole event.

Instant video feed: A multi-output switch connected to the Safe-T tether station was used to connect the Orion ground station (computer) and the police computer. They were able to retrieve the video stream via the camera’s IP address using an RJ45 cable. Finally, the police computer transferred the live images to the national police server over the Internet.
