Texas Department of Public Safety Selects Drone Situational Awareness Software
Monday, March 15, 2021 | Comments

The Texas Department of Public Safety awarded DroneSense an agreement to improve situational awareness by centralizing and integrating massive data sets and creating the ideal environment for multiple agencies to collaborate and work together effectively to face any public safety crisis. The contract has options to renew for multiple years.

Built for pilots, operators and administrators to communicate easily and effectively with one another and share mission-critical information, DroneSense allows for seamless communication and collaboration while supporting a wide variety of drones, tablets and sensors. The hardware-agnostic platform means agencies can use DroneSense while using preferred hardware combinations from manufacturers including DJI, Parrot and Autel.

DroneSense provides situational awareness, allowing operators and teams to coordinate operations from anywhere. Centralizing, standardizing and securing massive amounts of raw data across multiple agencies makes processing and parsing through the information much faster, allowing teams to make timely, informed decisions to safely complete the mission.

Texas DPS has a broad range of mission requirements including law enforcement, counterterrorism, disaster response and search and rescue. The department’s drone program started in 2017 and includes more than 100 small unmanned aerial system (sUAS) units. In addition, the department offers drone operation training at its Florence, Texas, facility where its train agencies from across the state and country in real-world situations including night operations, search and rescue (SAR) and clearing facilities. "We're excited to expand our relationship with the Texas Department of Public Safety, and look forward to sharing what we're able to offer other public safety agencies like law enforcement, fire, and emergency management," said DroneSense CEO Chris Eyhorn. "The scale of the DPS drone program gives us great insight into features and capabilities to enhance our solution and better serve other public-safety agencies. Our goal is to provide the most complete set of information in a way that provides drone teams and supporting agencies the information needed to effectively respond to any emergency scenario."
