High hopes for drones seeking clues of past crimes

Department 13 volunteers cutting-edge assistance to search for potential evidence in some of the ACT’s long-standing unsolved murders and disappearances.

Like something out of a sci-fi film, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology of Department 13 has the capability to assist in new ways in old investigations. This could include that of 20-year-old Keren Rowland, whose body was found in the Fairbairn Pine Forest in 1971.

According to CEO Lee Croft, these technologies can provide access and coverage in ways often not otherwise possible.

“More and more, drones are used in everything from intelligence gathering, physical security to surveillance, disasters to crime scenes,” he says.

“A system being developed in the US can even analyse drone footage to determine whether people are alive or not”.
