The Olympics will be protected by drone catchers and face-detecting planes

Drones will guard Olympics

The South Korean authorities are implementing some high-tech security measures for the upcoming Winter Olympics. The authorities are considering the deployment of drone-catching-drones and a tactical plane with facial recognition. The drones they’re using to patrol the event won’t chase away rogue drones that get too close to the venues. They will cast nets to catch any UAV that shows up on the radar of security team. The authorized photographers will be able to capture photos of the games. The Pyeongchang Olympics anti-Terrorism and Safety team are apparently concerned about the possibility of terrorists using drones to drop or plant bombs. The team members have also been training to shoot drones out of the sky.

The participation of North Korea in the games makes it less likely for the country to attack. But, it’s clear that authorities want to be fully prepared due to terrorists normally attack huge crowds. The team’s UAVs are scanning the skies and their tactical plane will focus on what’s happening down below. The plane is equipped with high-resolution CCTVs with facial recognition, giving it the ability to keep a close eye on what’s happening on the ground from an altitude of around 150 to 200 meters. The security personnel will be deployed to the area to handle the incident if it picks up a threat. Since facial recognition is far from perfect, but the authorities will take to ensure no innocent person gets hurt. In addition to the drone-catching-drone and the military plane, the Olympics venues will be protected by multiple motion-tracking CCTVs, as well.
