Sentinel Consulting, a Manhattan-based full-service security consulting firm that advises clients in the areas of security management, law enforcement, emergency services, and security technology, announced the launch of its new Unmanned Technology Planning and Design Services. Applications for unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or drones, as well as robots and autonomous ground vehicles, will now be formally represented within Sentinel’s comprehensive plan/design/deploy/manage spectrum of services. Sentinel’s Unmanned Technology Planning and Design Services will be introduced at the Unmanned Security Expo New York, November 14-15, at New York City’s Javits Center.
The Company’s expanded focus to incorporate the security benefits and risks associated with unmanned technology is a proactive measure to ensure its client base is fully supported as it invests in this growing category of solutions. Industry analysts project that by 2020, the security investment in automated and robotic systems, specifically UAS, will top $10.5 billion. Unmanned technology has made major inroads into the protection and risk mitigation of high-profile facilities, critical infrastructure, large complexes, and diverse other businesses, while at the same time the potential asset risks from UAS have multiplied, including business espionage and potential attacks on critical sites. These security concerns are central to Sentinel’s customers.
The Unmanned Security Expo, a new trade-only event focused exclusively on providing autonomous solutions for commercial and government security and safety as well as drone detection/counter-system applications, is an opportunity for high-level security executives to evaluate manufacturers’ solutions and participate in educational seminars related to the complex issues surrounding the product category. Those seeking additional guidance will find that Sentinel is qualified to help them navigate the full range of challenges they will encounter, including ambiguous UAS regulations, issues related to insurance and liability, evaluating total cost-of-ownership and return-on-investment, defining standard operating procedures and policies, selecting the right manufacturing the contracting partners, and training security staff to operate and manage unmanned systems.
Sentinel is led by a team of seasoned security professionals with certifications that include FAA Part 107 – Certified Drone Pilot, PSP – Physical Security Professional and CPP – Certified Protection Professional.
Paul Benne, Sentinel’s CEO, explains, “Our unique combination of comprehensive expertise and fluency in security technology is at the core of our ability to consistently provide the right professional team to service our clients. As our clients begin to embrace unmanned technology as part of their security portfolios, they can feel confident that Sentinel will deliver an end-result that fully delivers on their security objectives, while taking the pain and confusion out of the entire process.”
