Secom to help companies stay safe with eyes in sky

The drone's four-propeller configuration and honeycomb shape is designed for stability.

TOKYO -- Japanese security company Secom, starting in December, will offer a surveillance service using drones designed to detect and track suspicious vehicles and people. The drones can also take pictures of license plates and intruders' faces as they enter factory grounds or shops at night.

     The launch of the service was delayed after a drone carrying radioactive material was discovered on the roof of the Japanese prime minister's office in April. Secom has already received more than 100 orders for the service from companies and research institutions. The drones will be the world's first operated by a private security company, Secom said.
