Securing the Perimeters

Next-Generation Counter UAS Solutions for Prison & Correctional Facilities
Abstract Clouds

Prisons around the world are facing an alarming increase in drone-related incidents. Inmates are exploiting drones to engage in illegal trade, smuggling drugs, alcohol, weapons, and cellphones into prisons. These activities not only endanger the lives of inmates and correctional officers but also lead to increased criminal activity both inside and outside prison walls.

Unlike traditional smuggling methods, drones allow inmates to bypass physical barriers and deliver contraband directly into prison yards. This not only facilitates the access to illicit goods but also increases the potential for inmates to commit crimes from within the prison walls. The use of drones also enables inmates to intensify their criminal activities, leading to further issues such as violence, drug abuse, and gang-related conflicts.


The Growing Threat of Drones in Prisons

Attacks on Staff or

In extreme cases, drones may be weaponized or used for targeted attacks on prison staff or inmates within the facility.

Distractions and

UAS can be flown near Prisons to distract guards or disrupt daily operations, such as count procedures or outdoor recreational activities.


Drones can be employed to drop tools, ropes, or other materials to assist in prison escapes or to facilitate inmate communication with the outside.

Surveillance and

Drones equipped with cameras or other sensors can be used to gather intelligence on security vulnerabilities, layout, or personnel movements within a prison, aiding potential escape attempts or criminal activities.


Drones can be used to transport drugs, weapons, cell phones, or other contraband into a correctional facility, bypassing traditional security measures.
