South Wales Police (SWP) has chosen Excelerate Technology’s UAV Streamer to enhance its UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) operations.
The technology allows the drone pilot to securely stream real-time footage from the UAV to a wider audience enabling officers on and off-site to make better-informed decisions regarding their response strategies.
Footage from the UAV can be viewed remotely from any authorised device with an internet connection, giving officers real-time situational awareness wherever they are. This includes from SWP’s five mobile CCTV units which were also kitted out by Excelerate.
Excelerate’s engineering team also tailored the UAV Streamer to meet the specific needs of SWP by fully integrating it into a rucksack. This customisation makes it incredibly user-friendly and easy for drone teams to “plug and play.” Additionally, this customisation allows officers to conveniently connect compatible hand-held cameras for live streaming and intelligence gathering purposes.
South Wales Police has been using drone technology for a range of applications including major event security, search and rescue, traffic management, surveillance and more.
