Technology is dynamic and fast paced, so when it comes to security and business intelligence, you must be at least 10 steps ahead of the game. Drones (UAV/UAS’s) provide a tactical advantage to many businesses, offering versatility and ability to cover tough terrain. So, what if criminals and hackers get their hands on them?

Securisq was born due to the lack of safety following the market boom of UAV/UAS’s (or unmanned aircraft) or commonly called drones for civilian use. Using advanced detection systems, we can provide real time information and alerts of active drones in your airspace.

Deploying countermeasures on detection, we can prevent delivery of dangerous or illegal items and keep your privacy safe.

We keep airspace safe, free of drones, we have the best technology to cover your airspace security needs.

We implement systems for Detection, Identification and Neutralization of drones (UAV/UAS).
