Drones are great. Multiple new exciting services are being offered thanks to the proliferation of increasingly sophisticated and
affordable drones. But this booming technology also poses new threats: drones are the ultimate weapons for terrorist groups,
vandals or spies. The increasingly easy access to mini/micro UAVs makes them a growing potential threat to critical infrastructures, oil refineries, megayachts, VIP residences, airports.

Recent years have seen a massive advance in drone endurance, range and payload capacity whilst the price has also plummeted, leading to a proliferation of drones expected to reach 22 million by 2020.

These are some types of threats:

  • Photographs or videos can be taken -and transmitted-in sensitive areas.
  • Drones can be bugged with sensitive microphones and audio recording equipment, to spy your conversations.
  • They can also record passwords being typed at your premises.
  • Drones can launch explosives, shoot bullets, deliver radioactive particles or dangerous chemical substances.
  • Drones can smuggle contraband in prisons, ports, across borders or elsewhere.
