Lieutenant Landfield and Sergeant Robertson explain the impact of police drones, amongst which, tethered drones on their daily public safety missions, and describe how their uses “went through the roof”, going from 9 uses in four years to 292 last year. With aerial surveillance missions going up to 9 hours of continuous flight, they show how tethered drones helped them cover and secure 80% of parking lots, 9 major roads, and three stadiums of 80K capacity.
Lieutenant Landfield and Sergeant Robertson emphasize the importance of the quick set-up, reliability, easy command, and high endurance of tethered drones in their Police missions.
Lt Landfield: “Not having to land and switch battery is a lot easier for the pilots. When you look at an extended drone deployment, there is a tremendous amount of time dedicated to battery swaps and battery charging. It allows maintaining a large percentage of air time vs ground time.”‘
As they explain, the director in NFL security shows his enthusiasm for the use of tethering solutions because he believes that they mitigate a lot of risks associated with free drones operations.
