The OPP’s Colin Giles stole the show at Blue Line Expo on May 3, 2018, with his talk on unmanned aerial systems (UASs) and the role they play in collision reconstruction as well as search and rescue endeavours.
Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) have become increasingly common and sophisticated. More and more, UGVs can be seen patrolling facility perimeters while transmitting data and video surveillance footage to their human counterparts.
Aerial drones might someday deliver online purchases to your home. But in some prisons, drone delivery is already a thing. Drones have been spotted flying drugs, cell phones and other contraband over prison walls, and in several cases, drug traffickers have used drones to ferry narcotics across the border.

Iconic scenes, such as the Star Trek crew using ‘personal access data devices’ (today commonly known as tablets) and USA Today’s media drone filming Griff Tannen’s arrest in Back to the Future II, seemed unbelievable at the time and stood out for their daring creativity. Today, thanks to recent technological advances, many of the fantastical technological visions of the past are becoming reality.

As unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, become more popular and sophisticated, so does the demand for drone detection solutions in the security industry.
Mission-critical voice communications is set to undergo an extensive makeover as Next Generation 911 prepares to take over in Canada. The sheer amount of multimedia data the IP (Internet Protocol) update will make available to police is detonative — it’s already making deep rumblings, as we’re seeing with police drones and body worn cams.
The “first technique to detect a drone camera illicitly capturing video” is revealed in a new study published by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in Israel and Weizmann Institute of Science cybersecurity researchers. The study addresses increasing concerns about the proliferation of drone use for personal and business applications and how it is impinging on privacy and safety.
