Join hands with us in innovating drone-related technologies solving real policing needs

Drones come very handy for policing in various avenues including Areal Patrolling, Surveillance and Emergency Relief/Support. At the same time, drones are used by anti-national/criminal entities for activities including spying of sensitive government establishments with audio/video recording, sabotage planning on critical establishments and trafficking of illegal goods such as drugs and weapons. This hackathon aims to provide opportunities for socially committed and technically competent organizations, academia and individuals to join hands with Kerala Police Cyberdome in strengthening the drone capabilities of our force. Let us join hands in innovating solutions to address the opportunities and challenges in this space!
