telent, in collaboration with its technology partner Digital Global Systems (DGS), has agreed a three-year contract to install the CLEARSKY TM Drone Threat Management system at Bristol Airport, marking the first U.K. deployment of the system.
The CLEARSKY TM Drone Threat Management system was developed by DGS in response to the rising threat of unauthorized drone usage at critical infrastructure sites, including airports. Its implementation at Bristol Airport, an international transport hub and one of the ten busiest airports in the U.K., follows a successful three-month pilot project with Bristol Airport Authority, local police and other security agencies.
With the installation of this system, security staff and local police, will be able to accurately detect, identify and monitor unauthorized drone activity in and around the airport. Most importantly, the CLEARSKY TM system detects the location of both the drone and drone operator and tracks them within the flight restriction zone outside of the airport. This information can be shown on a control room screen or via a mobile application, provided by application development partner, Airpoint International. This eliminates the need for manpower-intensive searches over large areas and allows relevant authorities to quickly and efficiently respond to drone incidents.Email Post to a Friend
