Tech Company Aims to Have Autonomous Drones Securing Border

Local News

Patrolling the border region may soon be easier with the use of drones.

That’s according to security company Aptonomy.

As part of a border security conference, the company shows us one of the latest autonomous drones.

One of their areal drones uses Doppler radar to identify individuals that may not belong to an area.

That is when a drone deploys without the use of a pilot.  

“Then an operator can take control if he wishes and communicate with the person that has compromised the area and/or simply record and return autonomously,” says Aptonomy representative Dana Frischer.

The company tells us that various law enforcement agencies have taken interest in the drone.

No confirmation on if, or when, these will be used for border agencies.
