We Deploy Autonomous Drones to 911 Calls

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

THE PALADIN SOLUTION

With one click, Paladin’s autonomous drone is deployed to a 911 call from its remote home base and arrives before first responders, giving them access to a live and controllable video feed where they can gather valuable intel, plan ahead, and execute on arrival. In a world where having information is critical to success, it’s dangerous that first responders have so little. Paladin’s LTE drone with autonomous software controls and secure data management makes drone as a first responder (DFR) programs 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, causing CAD queues 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.

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.

DRONE AS A FIRST RESPONDER (DFR)

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.

SEE PALADIN IN ACTION

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

STREAMLINED 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 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, Paladin’s DFR platform. Then, with one mouse click, an LTE-enabled drone automatically takes off and flies to the location, arriving in less than 90 seconds.

03

GATHER INTEL

The drone reaches the scene before first responders, giving them a live stream of the scene on any internet-connected device. Watchtower provides situational information to help first responders plan ahead.

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 call has been cleared, simply click ‘RTH’ and the drone automatically flies back to its home base. As the drone lands, flight data is automatically uploaded to Watchtower.

CASE STUDIES

The following case studies are active DFR programs using Paladin. Learn about how these departments started their program within a few months, the training necessary, the FAA BVLOS waiver process, examples of calls responded to, and how we helped them achieve tangible results.

PALADIN USE CASES

Police

DFR allows 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 a dangerous job safer. Our simple solution mitigates some of the risk of human error, especially in chaotic situations.

Fire

Leveraging a stable LTE connection, firefighters can gather valuable intel on a fire. With an overhead drone, they can see hot spots, assess structural integrity, locate civilians at risk, and determine potential points of entry, all before arriving.

Sheriffs & State Troopers

Sheriffs and State Troopers often cover large expanses of land. so the ability to deploy a drone to a scene in minutes is game-changing. Our technology allows agencies to teleoperate from one centrally located location, which makes gathering intel over a large expanse (county or state) entirely possible. For instance, a California State Trooper could control a drone stationed in San Bernardino from San Francisco.

Security

University, campus security, and energy & utility companies also greatly benefit from our system. Campus security can have eyes on a developing situation in minutes, ensuring student and faculty safety. 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.
