A drone receives an activation command indicating a user's need for monitoring, and is deployed based on the activation command and a set of initial operational parameters. The drone autonomously navigates to a first position with respect to the user and performs a first configured action. A plurality of monitoring data signals corresponding to the user and surrounding environment is captured using sensors on the drone, and is wirelessly transmitted by the drone to a remote monitoring system. The monitoring data signals are continuously analyzed to generate updated operational parameters causing the drone to autonomously navigate to a second position and perform a second configured action. A third configured action is received by the drone from the remote monitoring system, wherein the third configured action is generated based on a threat analysis performed by the remote monitoring system on the monitoring data signals.
