Ever since 2012 I have had an interest in UAV’s/drones. Drones can be used in very innovative ways and will change our future for good. In 2013 I started researching and analyzing incidents around the world were drones were posing a risk to society. Sadly as with all innovative new technologies drones were also discovered by people with malicious intentions to cause harm.
The goal of our GFA Birdhandler Training Program is to train staff from (mostly) international governmental police, defense and security agencies to work with our GFA-Certiﬁed birds of prey on a daily basis. The training program is based on theoretical class sessions, practical sessions working with our birds and group sessions.
In 2015 when we finished our proof of concept I contacted the Dignitary Protection Unit from the Dutch National Police Force for a demonstration. After the successful demonstration the Dutch National Police (DNP) asked us to work with them to research if and how this unique solution could be developed to a countermeasure. We have been working with the DNP since 2015 to our operational deployment today.
