The approval of the exit of England from Europe is causing, in addition to many connotations and movements at an economic level, certain actions that were not planned, such as the fact that those in charge of managing the Eurotunnel have made the decision to launch a program by which surveillance will be increased through the use of drones. This measure is intended, as reported, to maintain migration restrictions to Great Britain.
The units deployed, all equipped with sophisticated thermal and conventional camerasThey will work mainly on the French side of the tunnel so that it can be controlled at all times and above all limit migratory movements from the British archipelago. According to the Eurotunnel authorities, this measure appears to have already been under consideration since the refugee crisis intensified last year.
The Eurotunnel adds drones with special equipment in the French zone to improve their surveillance
Apparently the tests to decide what type of drone to use in the surveillance of the Channel tunnel have already been carried out satisfactorily in conditions of rain and strong winds. This is due to drone surveillance cannot be carried out inside the tunnel Therefore, the devices will be in charge of covering the 30 kilometers that comprise the security area surrounding the entry into French territory.
At the moment the drones deployed in the Eurotunnel, as assured by a spokesperson for the company that manages it, will be engaged in observation workIn the event that an anomaly is detected, human personnel will decide how to proceed for its solution. These drones are just an extra security measure that must work alongside more than 500 surveillance cameras, fences with motion sensors, security guards and even teams made up of French gendarmes.
