Airspace Galaxy for Stadiums
Keeping event venues open and safe for spectators, players, performers, and employees is top of mind for stadium operations. And something these venues need to prepare for is the marked increase in nearby drone traffic.
Airspace Galaxy is a fully automated, always-on solution that delivers the three mandatory requirements of airspace security: long-range detection, instant classification, and immediate response to unauthorized or malicious drones. It’s easy-to-use and can be up and running in less than a day.
Co-developed with the US Department of Defense, Airspace Galaxy enables safe and secure skies open for business and social good. As a founding member of the FAA Drone Advisory Committee and an active member of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Identification and Tracking Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC), Airspace is a thought leader in both drone policy and technology needed to safeguard people and property.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, in 2019 there were 1.3 million registered drones in the US and hundreds of thousands of additional unregistered drones. The FAA also predicts there will be 2.4 million drones registered by 2022.
Reduction of Reputational Risk
Stadiums and event venues around the United States are using drone security technology to reduce their reputational risk.
By immediately notifying venue security teams and local law enforcement when a drone is detected, stadiums can avoid event delays, disruptions or even event cancellations.
In the case of a drone detection, stadium operations will know when the drone is no longer in its airspace, allowing the venue to safely resume its operations.
Real-time Situational Awareness
Airspace Galaxy integrates a range of detection modalities and Artificial Intelligence so you have instant awareness of who is flying in your vicinity. Using multi-dimensional risk analysis to determine if the drone operator is clueless, careless or criminal, you know whether or not a detected drone poses a threat. You also know if you need to take action.
The Power of Protection
Many stadiums use the knowledge from Airspace Galaxy data to prevent future drone incursions.
For example, users can:
- Prepare and plan ahead for the most likely offenders and flight paths
- Identify the most frequent launch sites for drones and coordinate with local authorities to post signs clarifying that those locations are within “no-drone zones”
- Provide local and federal authorities with more knowledge of local drone activity, which can help inform future local, state and national laws and funding
Integration into Existing Security
Airspace Galaxy integrates into existing security management practices using:
- Sensor fusion with Artificial Intelligence and machine learning to minimize false positives, ensuring the information fed to your security teams and law enforcement is valuable and actionable
- Automated alerts via a web-based application, mobile app and email that can be integrated into existing security systems
- Tracking of historical detections to characterize drone activity in the vicinity of your venue (i.e., typical drone launch and recovery sites, flight patterns, etc.).
