Paparazzi and curious movie goers are using drones to infiltrate movie sets and steal pre-release footage.

Drone Defense Group provides comprehensive on-site analysis, helpful drone security training, and comprehensive counter-drone solution architecture to keep movie sets safe and secure.

No one likes to wait for a highly anticipated movie release or sequel to hit the big screen. Some people are taking their impatience to new heights (pun intended). Members of the paparazzi, as well as serious movie fans, have turned to drones as a stealth approach to spying on celebs and movie sets.

There’s nothing entertaining about spying on sets. Drones can wreak havoc for crew members causing noise disturbances, filming delays, and dangerous conditions—not to mention plot spoilers.

UAS’s or unmanned aerial systems are no joke.

They pose a very real threat to actors and crew members on TV and movies sets. In an effort to catch that once in a lifetime shot drone pilots put movie set staff members in serious danger. Drones can fall to the ground or collide with set equipment causing electrical sparks, falling debris, power outages, etc.

Hollywood will agree that drones can capture some amazing footage. Many directors have already used drones to film shots that people and helicopters just can’t compete with. However, Hollywood’s affinity for drones is wholly dependent on who the pilot is. Cinematographers—check, Paparazzi—forget about it, The movie’s biggest fan—don’t even think about it. For the latter two categories, if you attempt to infiltrate the set be prepared for some significant retaliation.

Drones are quickly becoming a security threat to be reckoned with and movie and TV security personnel are aware of the need for a comprehensive drone defense action plan. Expert advice, professional education and practical solutions specific to your organization are your best defense. Utilizing an action plan and taking a proactive, prepared approach is the only way to keep actors, crew, and plot lines safe.

Drones have severely compromised the security of businesses worldwide, which illustrates a clear need for a comprehensive drone defense action plan. The technology will continue to evolve, so staying one step ahead is crucial.

Protect what’s yours. This is the time to implement a drone defense plan.

Drone Defense Group has the expertise to help.

Drone Defense Group will conduct a comprehensive on-site analysis to determine an organization’s specific risk profile. The formal assessment takes advantage of our comprehensive risk framework, and optionally, can include accumulated tracking data from our sensors installed on the ground for a period of time.

Once risks are thoroughly researched and understood, the focus shifts to implementing a technical solution to stay on top of threats and to mitigate against loss. Drone Defense Group’s experts understand the counter-drone technologies available and can recommend a solution set that precisely addresses your specific risk profile.

Large, open-air events (sports, concerts, festivals) present a security challenge on many fronts. In addition, these events tend to attract amateur drone operators. Drone Defense Group will set up a temporary monitoring solution on-site, and then work side-by-side with organizers and law enforcement to monitor the airspace, identify unauthorized drones and help locate their pilots.

Most organizations have a plan for cyber-security incursions and active shooter scenarios, but having a practical drone defense strategy and accompanying standard operating procedure in place is now more critical than ever before. Our experts will work with you to make sure your security team and employees are prepared and know what to do in the event of a drone attack.

Drone Defense Group’s team of experts are available to provide in-person training and workshop style events. In these sessions, all aspects of counter-drone techniques can be addressed, including tracking technologies, active and passive mitigation methods and creation of organization best practices.
