We are using birds of prey to intercept hostile drones
Guard From Above is the first company in the world to use birds of prey to intercept hostile drones.

IS IT DANGEROUS FOR THE BIRDS?

Animal welfare is very important to us. We have over 25 years experience in working with birds of prey and we have specialists on our team with knowledge on drone technology.

In nature, birds of prey often overpower large and dangerous prey. Their talons have scales, which protect them, naturally, from their victims’ bites. The Dutch National Police has asked the Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) to research the possible impact on the birds’ claws. The results are not yet known. Of course, we are continuously investigating any extra possible protective measures we can take in order to protect our birds.

We are working closely with the Dutch National Police on the development of our services.

HOW MANY BIRDS ARE BEING TRAINED OR HAVE BEEN TRAINED

We are training many different kinds of birds of prey.

WHERE ARE THE BIRDS TRAINED?

Guard From Above is located at The Hague Security Delta (HSD) Campus in The Hague.
We use a number of indoor training facilities, as well as outdoor locations that have been designated for our use.

WHO TRAINS THE BIRDS OF PREY?

Our birds are trained by a team of specialists with a passion for these powerful animals. We have been working with birds of prey for more than 25 years.

WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS?

We work mainly for national and international governmental security agencies. One of our important clients, with whom we work closely, is the Dutch National Police.

WHY DO YOU USE A NATURAL SOLUTION?

The animal instinct of a bird of prey is unique. They are made to be able to overpower fast-moving prey. Sometimes the solution to a hypermodern problem is more obvious than you might think.

WHY USE BIRDS OF PREY?

We use the birds’ natural hunting instincts in order to intercept drones. We do this safely, quickly, and accurately.

DOES GUARD FROM ABOVE HAVE SUBSIDIARIES ABROAD?

Guard From Above is at the moment present in The Netherlands. We are looking into expanding our services and are working together with specialist companies worldwide.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO ATTENT A TRAININGSESSION OR DEMONSTRATION?

Due to the overwhelming attention from the international press it is not possible to attend a trainingsession. We are gathering all press requests and will make a selection if and when we will arrange a new press day.
