Implementing Drones To Support Your Security Plan 

Perimeter Patrols – Incident Response – Aerial Monitoring 

Drone Solutions For Security & Surveillance


The world today is a challenging place and addressing security threats is a top priority. Drones are a new security solutions that can empower security personnel and transform the ways they take action.  The aerial surveillance capabilities of drones makes them an invaluable tool when it comes to site security, perimeter patrols, incident response, intelligence gathering, and ultimately situational awareness. The imagery from the drone is streamed back to the command centre providing real-time visibility into security threats allowing security personnel to make informed decisions.  Let us help you implement drones as a security solution.

Drones For Security

There are many drones on the market and some are suitable for security roles and others are not.  Depending on capabilities and payloads, the price of these drones can range from $5000 to $100,000+.  Some of the key criteria include image quality, secure communications, endurance and reliability, and weather rating.  For long periods of surveillance, where battery time is insufficient,  we use a tethered system that connects to the drone and provides constant power.

4. Appropriate Drone Licence Training & Services

Remote Pilot Licence Training (RePL)

In general terms,  the operation of a security drone is considered a commercial operation under the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations. To ensure a organisations personnel can operate a drone legally and safely, and that the organisation can obtain the appropriate insurance, personnel need to complete a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) course.  Counter Drone Solutions can provide CASA certified RePL training.

Remote Operators Certificate (ReOC) Assistance

A Remote Operators Certificate (ReOC) is like a business licence to operate drones commercially and is issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. To obtain an ReOC you are required to document your procedures and explain how you will use drones legally and safely, and nominate a Chief Remote Pilot. The Chief Remote Pilot is responsible for flight operations and the supervision of other pilots.  Counter Drone Solutions can assist in the development of your ReOC manuals and train your Chief Remote Pilot.
