Special protection against hostile use of drones is required at critical infrastructure facilities, such as power plants, utilities, dams, bridges, or telecommunication networks, which, if damaged can jeopardise the day to day operations or in worst case scenario, create casualties among the population. Intrusive Unmanned Aerial Systems can directly threaten these facilities, by using explosives or spying with the intent of industrial espionage, which can be used in hostile activities.
Nowadays, it is absolutely necessary to have total airspace protection of strategic facilities. This protection is ensured by Ctrl+Sky, especially because of the “umbrella protection zone”, which guarantees 360-degree full coverage. This is possible thanks to the multi-sensor authoring system design. With this functionality, Ctrl+Sky will capture every airborne intruder and allow it to be neutralised.
Examples of dangerous incidents involving drones
Greenpeace activists flew drones over the Orano La Hague plant and dropped smoke bombs onto the roof of a building containing irradiated fuel.
Fire and explosions caused the detonation of ammunition in several sites at the base, possibly set off by a drone attack or a radio or timed device
Greenpeace activists crashed two remote-controlled aircraft — a drone and a tiny radio-controlled plane — into a French nuclear plant to highlight the lack of security around the facility.
