Detects the presence of small unmanned aircraft by their radar signature, which is generated when the aircraft encounters RF pulses emitted by the radar. These systems employ algorithms to distinguish between drones and other small, low-flying objects.
RF detection systems identify the presence of drones by scanning for the frequencies on which most drones are known to operate. Algorithms pick out and geolocate RF emitting devices in the georeferenced area that are likely to be drones.
High resolution thermal and daylight cameras come to help where the identification of the threat is inadequate through RF detection systems or Radars. Cameras enable further evaluation and identification for potential threats.
