At a major distribution center in the US, a team of aerial drones and robot dogs carry out patrols and sweep the ground’s perimeter, sending live footage back to a security operations center located hundreds of miles away. This innovative automated robotic security system is the brainchild of Asylon, a US company on a mission to revolutionize the way organizations protect their people and assets round the clock.

Equipped with thermal and electro-optical cameras, Asylon’s high-tech DroneSentry and DroneDog systems provide an eye-in-the-sky and ground patrol presence. They’re proving an effective way of monitoring huge sprawling facilities without the need to scale up on-foot patrols and surveillance cameras.

“Our vision was to design the infrastructure so that uncrewed aerial systems (UAS) could be used for good,” said Adam Mohamed, Asylon’s co-founder and chief technology officer. “The aim was to automate dull, dirty and dangerous missions.”

After successfully completing tens of thousands of customer missions, demand continues to grow for Asylon’s remote command and control services. As the company scales up its operations, it needed a platform capable of handling all product development as well as streamlining compliance with Federal Aviation Administration regulations on its UAS design.

The autonomous drone developer found the answer in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, where engineers use CATIA to design and configure all drone components and ENOVIA to securely share data within the integrated systems environment.
