+ - Deutsche Telekom Counters Copper Thieves With Drones And DNA->

Submitted by garymortimer
garymortimer (1882326) writes "Sascha Fuchs (L), head of ATG Sitec GmbH, and Thorsten Kanand, head of AirRotorMedia, demonstrate how a quadrocopter drone can carry a rig for marking telephone cables with artifical DNA on September 30, 2013 near Kremmen, Germany. The two men have a contract with German communications provider Deutsche Telekom to tag overhead telephone cables across Germany in an effort to fight theft of the cables, which has shot up in recent years with the value of copper."
