Easy Aerial Partners with Travis Air Force Base for Autonomous Drone Security System

Easy Aerial, a provider of autonomous drone-based monitoring solutions, deployed its first autonomous drone security system at the Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California this week. This system will provide better surveillance and situational awareness from the skies. The system was developed in conjunction with the U.S. Air Force and consists of two drones – one that flies freely and a tethered drone. The launch of this new security system points towards the need for more effective surveillance in large spaces such as an air base, and the fact that drones can easily (and effectively) fill this need.

The system, the Smart Air Force Monitoring System (SAFMS), is a “drone-in-a-box solution,” which allows the drone to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In its box, the drone can charge in about 35 minutes and is protected from the elements. The tethered drone (SAFMS-T) is similar to the tether-less drone, but has a longer flight time and does not require a wireless connection. The lack of a wireless connection makes it easier to protect against middle-man attacks on the connection.

This system will increase efficiency, provide exceptional security, and increase safety for airmen and other critical assets, all while lessening the effort and resources needed to monitor and secure the base.

Ivan Stamatovski, CTO of Easy Aerial said, “This was a joint effort as we worked closely together from start to finish resulting in a customized solution for the USAF that meets all of their operational desires and requirements, all while providing operational safety to the airmen and assets.” More drone security systems are sure to hit the airspace soon to alleviate the need for on-the-ground security and extension camera-based security systems.
