Airspace Galaxy for Stadiums and Public Events: Ensuring Safety and Security

In today’s world, the safety and security of spectators, players, performers, and staff at event venues are paramount for stadium operations. An emerging challenge that these venues must contend with is the significant rise in drone activity in their vicinity.

To address this, Airspace Galaxy presents a fully automated, always-active solution designed to fulfill the three essential requirements for airspace security: long-range detection, swift classification, and immediate action against unauthorized or potentially harmful drones. It is user-friendly and can be deployed quickly, becoming operational in less than a day, thus providing a comprehensive drone protection layer for public events.

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.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) forecasts that by 2024, the commercial drone fleet in the United States will reach 828,000 units, and the recreational drone fleet will number around 1.48 million units? (US GAO)?. This projection indicates a substantial increase in drone activity, encompassing both commercial and recreational uses.

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.).
