WASHINGTON – With terror attacks gripping the world in recent years, security experts are seeking new ways of ramping up defense systems. And now, they're calling on you to help. By downloading a new, free, phone app, users are being encouraged to help keep people at stadiums or airports safe from potential attacks. DroneWatcher uses a smart phone's wifi receiver to monitor for radio signals of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The data collected from multiple users' phones is sent automatically to security officials for them to act on. So as Edward Zakrajsek at the developing company DeTect Global puts it - all you really have to do is download it.
Edward 'Zak' Zakrajsek, General Manager, of Detect Global, says: "The application is really crowdsourcing, where if we have a hundred users in an area using the app all of their data from detecting that drone gives us much better information, and instead of knowing that the drone is near one phone we can now locate that drone and the controller and essentially plot that drone on a map now with good accuracy and track its movements."
Although the Android-based app is free, developers will be paid by organizers of concerts, sporting venues and airports to access the crowdsourced data. Last October Turkish warplanes shot down an unidentified drone in Turkish air space near the Syrian border after repeated warnings for it to be diverted were ignored. And a year earlier an international soccer match in Belgrade between Serbia and Albania was abandoned after a drone carrying a flag depicting so-called Greater Albania, was flown above the pitch and grabbed by a Serbian player. –Reuters
