Guernsey Prison Tests Technology Used by Eclipse Drones

Web Design Chester’s long term client Eclipse Drone Detection and Mitigation uses a technology recently featured during on an episode of ITV news.

In the war against contraband in prisons, drone detection and mitigation are hot topics. The rise of smuggling in prisons is said to be a direct effect from the increased popularity of drone technology.

Drones are an unmanned and remotely operated air vehicle that has its origins in military tech. After becoming available to the general population, those with the wrong intentions have found ways to misuse the technology for their own personal gain.

Drones are being used to deliver illegal contraband such as drugs and mobiles into the prison system by flying over the walls of institutes and dead dropping illegal items to prisoners.

What is Skyfence?

 Skyfence is at the front of drone defence technology. In terms of drone mitigation, Skyfence stops drones in their tracks, upon entering the force field emitted by the technology, they are brought to an immediate standstill.

Once stopped, the drone is raised to thirty metres above the ground and made to return to the operator of the vehicle.  This may make criminals think twice before trying to smuggle contraband into prisons again.

Guernsey Prison Testing Skyfence

Guernsey Prison is located upon the island of Guernsey. It is currently the first prison within the British Isles to enlist the help of Skyfence defence systems. The team at Guernsey recognised the potential Skyfence presented in the fight against prison smuggling.

They have already begun testing the technology at their facility in a bid to change the way they battle smuggling.

The testing at the facility so far has been so successful the staff there believe they no longer need to invest in a secondary physical fence. If this is the case, the prison stands to save over £1.3 million.

Skyfence Set to Lead the Way in Drone Mitigation  

Guernsey Prison is Skyfence’s first real test as a technology system. If Skyfence succeeds at Guernsey, the rest of the British Isles will be sure to follow in similar footsteps after all, what kind of organisation could afford to turn down savings of £1.3million? We know Web design Chester wouldn’t!
