Anti drone systems are used to detect and/or intercept unwanted drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Hostile drones may be used to deploy explosives, smuggle contraband or gather intelligence on sensitive assets, and the proliferation of low-cost UAVs has led to an increase in incidents.
Anti drone technology is deployed to protect areas such as airports, critical infrastructure, large public spaces such as stadiums, and military installations and battlefield sites.
Almost all major countries have introduced counter-drone measures to deal with rogue flying objects but the technologies to disable their navigation, interfere with their radio frequency, or even training eagles for countering small drones haven’t really proved foolproof.
Anti-drone technology encompasses a wide range of countermeasures that detect, identify, track, disable or destroy UAVs. Often multiple sensors and devices will be integrated into a single anti-drone system.
Let’s have a look at some of Israel’s Anti Drone Technologies:
- RADA: Tactical Radar and Avionics Systems
RADA is a global defense technology company focused on proprietary radar solutions and legacy avionics systems. The company is a leader in mini tactical radars, serving attractive, high-growth markets such as active military protection, counter-UAS, critical infrastructure protection, and border surveillance. http://www.rada.com
- ARTsys360: Micro-radar Sensors
ARTsys360 develops a 3D, 360Âº micro-radar sensor designed to protect compounds, improve traffic lights in smart cities, and enable autonomous cars. The patented technology allows a reduction in price, weight, and energy consumption compared with similar systems. http://www.artsys360.com/
- D-Fend Solutions: Counter-drone Security System
D-Fend Solutions provides an autonomous counter-drone perimeter security system that automatically detects, identifies, and intercepts intruding commercial drones. D-Fend provides comprehensive, safe, portable, and scalable solutions for securing a stationary perimeter.
- Smart Shooter: Precision Fire Control Systems
Smart Shooter is the developer of the SMASH family of add-on fire control systems for use on almost any rifle using standard ammunition. Smart Shooter systems are designed to enable any shooter, regardless of skill or operational stress, to accurately hit any stationary or moving target, thereby reducing collateral damage. https://www.smart-shooter.com/
