Stratospheric Balloon Systems for US DoD 26 Nov 2021
Counter UAS equipment covers a broad spectrum of CUAS technology used in the detection, tracking and removal of hostile unmanned aerial systems.
Detection and Tracking. A variety of counter drone solutions exist for drone detection, including scanning for radio frequencies unique to UAVs, acoustic sensors, anti-drone radar (ESA, Staring and micro-Doppler), and EO/IR sensors which scan for visual and heat signatures. Integrated Counter UAS systems often amalgamate these technologies alongside machine learning and AI programs to create intelligent, accurate drone detection and tracking solutions.
Capture and Neutralizing. Once detected threats can be physically eliminated using gun, laser or missile targeting systems. In situations where debris from these methods can be hazardous or where intelligence can be gathered via safe capture of the drone, jammers, spoofing equipment and kinetic solutions such as nets can be deployed.
Anti-Drone Technology Applications
Counter drone technology can be static, aerial, vehicle mounted or handheld. A combination of these can be effectively used in the protection of:
