Securus Technologies does not stop creating and patenting new technological advancements in the safety and security field and this latest technology is being implemented in trial runs to keep the skies clear of drones over penal facilities. Drone detection technology is steadily becoming a growing need in the penal systems as outside parties try more and more to deliver contraband such as drugs and cell phones to inmates inside the facilities for distribution. This technology works through a digital antenna structure similar to Securus’ Wireless Containment System. So far tests of the new system have been very effective in blocking drones from reaching their prospective targets.
This latest technology has been 18 months in the making and Securus has stated that the drone detection technology has been improving with every testing of the equipment. Securus has partnered with several outside companies in the engineering involved with the drone detection software and weakness are being fixed quickly. Securus Technologies is headquarter in a new state of the art building in Dallas, Texas. Securus Technologies provides safe inmate communications services to 1,200,000 inmates on a daily basis as well as provides safety and security services to 3500 facilities across the nation.
