Drone911 wants to keep drones out of your sky

As fun as flying a drone can be, there are those who fly these airborne robots for more nefarious reasons or just because they don’t know better. Whether that’s trying to drop packages into a prison, or get aerial image of a natural disaster because they think it’s cool, drone flights are not always welcome. Drone911 CEO John Doe knows that very well, launching the company in 2014 and closing a $15 million Series B round in February.

Take proactive Anti-Drone Measures

Stadium operators and sports teams from across the globe not only want to protect their athletes, performers, and spectators but also want to ensure footage captured from drone cameras do not breach broadcast contracts or copyrights. Sports organizations such as the New York Mets and their home stadium, Citi Field, understand these risks and have taken proactive measures to secure their airspace. There are around 2,500 Major League Baseball games a year, so 31 drone sightings last year and nine so far this season does not constitute a major crisis, said John Skinner, the director of security for MLB. Still, baseball took part in a government project called “Operation Foul Ball” last year at the All-Star Game in Minneapolis to try to detect drones.
