Securus Technologies recently completed a pilotless drone detection program. The program, which took 18 months, was deemed a success in an early 2018 release by the prison technology company. Securus will continue to test its technology, which uses Digital Antennae Structure (DAS) to triangulate the presence of drones in and around corrections facilities.
