Critical Infrastructure and Temporary Sites

Most critical infrastructure faces a threat vector from drones. This may be to observe guarding patterns, deliver contraband or to attack a specific area within an establishment. The effects from such malign activities can affect operational output, risk lives and have significant economic and reputational damage. Sites such as nuclear power stations, energy installations and airports and ports are all vulnerable to drone threats.

Often there are events of a temporary nature that may not be suitable for deployment of permanent counter drone solutions; these may include high profile visits, national events and large entertainment events such as sports and music. Disruption of these types of events risks life, affects the ability of organisers of the events to deliver them and poses significant reputational damage which may take years to recover from.

Quantum’s unique solutions deliver means to greatly enhance the situational awareness of sites and events and therefore permit mitigation measures to be activated.

Our solutions are driven by three principle capabilities

Force Protection

Military patrols operating away from base, on foot or in vehicles are vulnerable to attack or surveillance from re-purposed commercial drones that are easily capable of disrupting their operations. Small drones may deliver grenades or high explosives to directly risk the patrol’s safety. Indirectly, the drone may be used to provide guidance to other adversaries to enable them to locate a patrol and engage them more easily.

Military operating bases, whether deployed forward or in friendly territory are exposed to drone threats from hostile drones in a similar way as patrols and vehicles but with possibly even greater disruptive effects as they are the hubs from which operations are delivered.

Quantum offers solutions for customers facing threats from hostile drone use to directly interdict and kinetically defeat the target and so enhance their Force Protection capabilities.

Specialist Missions

Quantum is expert at delivering specialist solutions that may be enabled by novel use of drone technology. Customers facing unique and difficult challenges with no easy path to resolution use the company’s operational expertise and innovative, disruptive approach to solve their problems.

A particular example of a requirement is to deliver Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosive detection capabilities to enable customers to examine potentially contaminated sites at long range with minimal risk to life. Typical existing solutions use personnel directly deployed to the area with obvious risks or the use of ground vehicles which are slow, cumbersome and easily disrupted by terrain. 

Quantum’s solution to solve this problem allows unmanned sensitive detection capabilities to be deployed and live streamed to operators at long range to permit them to understand the threats they face in a safe and controlled way.
