USE CASE: RYDER CUP SURVEILLANCE

Ryder Cup Crowd Control and Traffic Monitoring

Use Case Preview

Every two years, the Ryder Cup brings together 24 of the world’s top golfers from the United States and Europe.

Tasked with securing 193 hectares and 50,000 visitors per day, the French National Police was in charge of coordinating the security arrangements and selected Elistair Orion tethered drone to secure the site, monitor the crowd flows and zoom in on specific elements when needed to identify the risks.

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 the unique UAV flight authorization for the whole event.
