BRINC Drones (“BRINC”) designs and manufactures powerful search and negotiation tools such as the LEMUR drone line and the BRINC ball. These tools are designed to aid and protect tactical teams in high-risk barricade, hostage, and active shooter situations. The drone (also called an unmanned aerial vehicle—UAV) can even deliver payloads like medical kits and Narcan, the drug used to reverse the effects of opioid overdoses. BRINC products are deployed by over 400 public safety agencies globally.
The mission of BRINC is to save lives using a new paradigm of robotics and drone technology to change the way public safety and first responders act in life-threatening situations and to increase the odds of a mission being successful. These tools are meant for use in tactical environments to clear rooms as well as locate, isolate, and communicate with suspects.
Headquartered in Seattle, WA, the firm was founded by Blake Resnick, a Las Vegas native, who was motivated to find a way to improve public safety following the 2017 Mandalay Bay mass shooting in Las Vegas. That tragedy resulted in the killing of 60 people and the wounding of 411 others. It inspired Resnick to build technology in the service of public safety and to work in close partnership with the Las Vegas Municipal Police Department SWAT in developing new technology tools. All BRINC products are fully designed, made, and assembled in the firm’s Las Vegas and Seattle facilities—an investment in local sourcing and production.
Bearing Advisors works with BRINC to educate local policy makers on how their communities can greatly benefit from using drone technology with correct public policies. As a tech innovator and thought leader in public safety, BRINC has the know-how and expertise to guide government leaders in developing drone technology policies at the local level and influence federal policy making. In addition to saving lives, this new technology is a force multiplier in dangerous situations because it enables first responders to put eyes and ears in places that are too dangerous to send a person.
