LTE Enabled UAVs Empowering Public Safety

Drone as a First Responder (DFR) technology giving first responders a live overhead view before they arrive on scene

INTRODUCING LTE FOR DJI

THE PALADIN SOLUTION

With one click, Paladin’s autonomous drone deploys to a 911 call from its remote home base and arrives onsite before first responders. Prior to arrival, first responders have access to a live and controllable video feed where they can gather valuable intel, plan ahead, and execute immediately on arrival.

In a world in which having information is critical to success, it’s dangerous that first responders have so little. Paladin’s LTE drone with autonomous software controls and data management makes drone as a first responder (DFR) both effective and straightforward to implement.

“To have that unit overhead providing valuable information, intelligence, can be a game changer as to making sure we have good outcomes.”

Chief Ray Schultz, Memorial Village PD

DRONE AS A FIRST RESPONDER (DFR)

Situational Awareness on 911 calls: A lack of information on 911 calls every day leaves first responders struggling to understand the situation they are responding to. An overhead drone allows them to use their training to gather critical intel and plan effectively before arrival.

A Force Multiplier: Departments around the country experience staffing shortages, making it difficult to respond to calls quickly and the CAD queue begins to pile up. With a DFR program, departments can get eyes on calls and clear them more efficiently. One of our partners clears anywhere from 15-35% of 911 calls on a given day with just one drone.

Situational Awareness on 911 calls: There is a lack of information on 911 calls every day, leaving first responders struggling to paint a picture of the situation they are responding to. An overhead drone allows them to use their training to gather critical information and plan effectively before arrival.

A Force Multiplier: Many departments around the country are experiencing staffing shortages making it difficult to respond to every call promptly. The CAD queue begins to pile up. With a DFR program, departments can get eyes on calls and clear them if the situation is resolved or if there is no cause to leave the call open. One of our partners clears anywhere from 15-35% of 911 calls on a given day with just one drone.

Responds to calls, provides live video feed, and aids first responders.

STEP-BY-STEP CALL RESPONSE

Receive Call, Initiate Drone, Watch, Call Back

01

RECEIVE 911 CALL

Once a 911 call is received, the dispatcher immediately begins asking questions to assess the scene and gather as much useful information for first responders as possible. Simultaneously, they are relaying this information to them. Having a live stream allows for trained first responders to look for helpful information like a subject’s location, level of danger, crowds, etc.

02

DEPLOY UAS

Right when the call is answered, the caller’s location is sent to Watchtower. Then, with one mouse click, Knighthawk automatically takes off and flies to the location. The drone will arrive in less than 90 seconds.

03

GATHER INTEL

Knighthawk reaches the scene before first responders, enabling them to view the live stream of the scene on any internet-connected device. Watchtower provides situational information to help first responders plan ahead and assist people more efficiently. 

Control the drone’s flight and camera (zoom, thermal) all in one place with just a few clicks. There is no need for a remote controller or an onsite, trained pilot.

04

RETURN TO HOME

Once the situation has been cleared, simply click ‘RTH’ and the drone automatically flies back to its home base. Once the drone lands, the flight data is automatically uploaded to Watchtower. A few clicks get first responders eyes on the mission within minutes.

CASE STUDIES

The following are three Paladin DFR programs. Each case study goes into detail about the program, how it started, and most importantly why. The results section of the case studies show the accomplishments by the department thus far. The beginning outlines why they started followed by how they got their programs up and running within a few months. It will described the FAA BVLOS waiver process, what training was necessary, examples of calls the programs have deployed to, how DFR helped, and more.

DFR USE CASES

Police

DFR allows for trained officers and dispatchers to analyze a situation and gather key intel before arriving allowing them to provide emergency response more efficiently and effectively making the dangerous job safer. Using our simple solution, all it takes is a few mouse clicks and there is a drone overhead. Its simplicity makes it a force multiplier and its autonomy mitigates some of the risk and human error which can be important in chaotic situations.

Sheriffs & State Troopers

Sheriffs and State Troopers often cover large expanses of land so being able to get a drone up in the air and over a scene in minutes is an amazing resource of information. Our technology allows agencies to do this from one centrally located location which makes this kind of information gathering over a large expanse such as a county or state entirely possible. For example, a California State Trooper could control a drone stationed in San Bernardino from San Francisco.

Security

University campus security and energy and utility companies can also greatly benefit from our system. Campus security can have eyes on any situation in minutes making students safer. Energy and utility companies now have the ability to inspect any facility from anywhere in the world with an internet connection from one centralized location.
