Extract data from drones – An innovation and "industry first" from MSAB

Drones pose a real and growing threat to law enforcement, corrections and counter-terrorism teams.

Police and militaries around the globe are working on methods to stop rogue drones, such as capturing them with nets, shooting them down with anti-drone ray guns or jamming radio frequencies.

In the UK, police have seized more than 90 drones engaged in illegal activities in the last year, including incursions at 12 prisons involving the smuggling of drugs and other contraband to inmates.
