Percepto, the autonomous industrial drone solutions developer, has announced that it will operate and broadcast live overseas autonomous drone missions from Stand IF2146 at IFSEC International 2019 (which runs at London’s ExCeL from 18-20 June). The company will also launch the next generation of its industrial and enterprise grade ‘Drone-in-a-Box’ system solution, including new software improvements and an enhanced all-weather base station.
This is the first time that Percepto has brought its autonomous drone solution to the UK and Europe’s leading security event. The company will afford security practitioners the opportunity to discover how current drone technology can be used to improve security and safety, reduce risk and optimise operations.
On Wednesday 19 June at 11.00 am, Percepto is hosting an exclusive media event including a live broadcast of an autonomous drone mission being carried out in Israel. There will also be a Q&A session with Ariel Avitan, co-founder and chief commercial officer of Percepto, who informed Risk Xtra: “We will demonstrate how the Percepto solution delivers aerial surveillance through patrols, real-time detection and tracking of humans and vehicles, as well as anomaly detection, all without the need for an on-site operator or pilot.”
Visitors to IFSEC International will witness how Percepto’s Sparrow drones take-off automatically to perform pre-scheduled missions such as patrolling a perimeter. Should a drone detect an object of interest (ie a person or a vehicle in a restricted area), an alert is automatically triggered and the Control Room operator is able to instantly view the real-time camera footage as the drone tracks the object.
Sparrow drones can also be used as first responders when launched on-demand by an operator or when triggered via an integrated system such as a smart fence.
Once a mission has been completed, the drone returns to its base station – a highly secure enclosed weather-proof box stationed in the field – where automated post-flight checks and fast battery charging is completed, ensuring the drone is primed for the next mission. Percepto’s all-new base station is a key feature of its next generation release and will be on display for the first time at IFSEC International.
“Drones will become part of the fabric of security and surveillance operations,” added Avitan. “Whether deployed stand-alone or fully integrated with the Control Room’s VMS or other security systems, Percepto’s drones provide today’s security teams with a level of aerial surveillance that was once inconceivable and unattainable for the majority of large-scale enterprises.”
