MEER-KAT / Drone for Public Security

MEER-KAT

Nowadays, terrorists like to create attack in the public area. MEERKAT is specifically designed to protect the public. MEERKAT will conduct security routines that are adapted to the public space. MEERKAT will first scan and assess potential threats. If a threat is identified , it will take a picture and alert the nearby authorities. This allows the police to efficiently investigate potential threats. After a policeman has seen the threat it will return to scanning the area and coordinate with other drones.
