An anti-drone system consists of two parts:
- Detection measures
The detection technology can easily be integrated into existing alarm and control room systems. The technique consists of a sensor layer, the validation software and the user interface on a computer screen.
It consists of outdoor sensors placed on top of the building that capture the radio signals, listen to acoustic signals and capture images with a camera.
This is the heart of the system where sensor information is validated and correlated. The forensic information is also stored here for investigative purposes. The unique ID, type and MAC-address of the drone are stored and compared with previous detections.
This web browser-based user interface can be used on a separate or an existing control room monitor. It is user-friendly and requires little training to operate. The countermeasures to be taken depend on the nature of the threat and the circumstances. Does the drone have an unknown payload/explosive or just a camera? Where is the drone located?
