How Drones Can Protect and Serve

Both pilots and companies are navigating a thin line between security and innovation. Host Grant Guillot talks with leaders, influencers, and experts across the drone industry to guide us through the complex web of technology and policy in the United States.

 

Drones can be very hard workers, flexible enough to meet the needs of many users. The adoption of the technology by law enforcement is continuing. On Drones in America, host Grant Guillot discussed how drones protect and serve with guest Brett Kanda of BRINC Drones, a Las Vegas-based drone manufacturer.

Kanda explained that initially, the company and its founder’s purpose was surveillance drones. However, after the October 1 shootings in Las Vegas, the company pivoted.
The founder, Blake Resnick, who was only 18 at the time, cold-called the Las Vegas police.

“We’re building something to save lives. It helps law enforcement understand what’s going on, gather intel, and have two-way communication. It’s changing operations for active shooters, hostages, or barricades” – Brett Kanda

“He told them he could build something that would have helped them. They had to clear every room, taking a long time to find the shooter. He then spent six months with the SWAT team, getting their feedback on features, and that led to the LEMUR,” he said.

Because the drones deploy indoors, the regulations from the FAA were no longer a stumbling block. As a result, the company rapidly grew from two employees to 40.

“We’re building something to save lives. It helps law enforcement understand what’s going on, gather intel, and have two-way communication. It’s changing operations for active shooters, hostages, or barricades,” Kanda commented.

Along with supporting SWAT teams, these indoor drones are valuable for border control. “They can inspect underground tunnels with night vision,” Kanda described.

The main application for drones is to protect lives and deliver better outcomes for all. “We are providing a tool to bridge the gap between law enforcement and communities,” Kanda added.
