About Our Hackathon

Kerala Police has always been committed to keeping ourselves equipped against new and emerging threats, especially in technology areas affecting the security of the state and it's citizens. The emergence of 'drones' or 'unpiloted aircraft' has made a significant impact on security and surveillance in recent times. As in the case of any other new technology in this space, it poses huge opportunities along with a host of new threats to law and order establishments.

There are several avenues in which drones can become very helpful in policing. This includes;

a.Areal Patrolling and Surveillance
b.Emergency Relief & Support

At the same time, law enforcement agencies across the globe are realising that remotely operated drones are emerging as force multipliers in the hands of criminals and terrorists. Following are some of the purposes for which anti-national and criminal entities use this technology;

a.Spying of sensitive government establishments with audio/video recording.
b.Sabotage planning on critical infrastructure such as Oil refineries, Dams, Power Plants etc
c. Trafficking of illegal goods such as drugs and weapons

With the objective of elevating the technical capabilities in this constantly evolving domain, Kerala Police Cyberdome is conducting a hackathon called 'Drone'KP' with core focus on Drone technologies.
This program intends to provide a platform for socially committed technical experts from industry and academia to join hands with Cyberdome in the following areas;

1. Drone Making in the following categories
(c)Endurance/Heavy lifting

2. Anti-drone Solution Development

3. Drone Forensic Solution Development
