Scout13 provides real-time situational awareness of who and what is in your airspace

Department 13 has launched a new product at the 2022 Land Forces International Land Defence Exposition that can instantly observe, identify and locate unauthorized drones in nearby airspaces.

The Scout13 drone detection system uses a combination of radio frequency and protocol comprehension to observe up to 5km of airspace, providing a high level of intelligence on unauthorized drones invading monitored areas. 

This technology can enhance surveillance and security teams, collecting radio frequency data, transmitting in real-time to the cloud-based central knowledge command center for interpretation, tracking and intelligent response. 

Data is verified through Department 13’s robust drone fingerprint library to detect, identify, attribute and locate drones within and around nearby airspaces. 

“The product instantly enables informed strategic decisions regarding potential threats from airspace incursions that could compromise the safety and security of the monitored site,” said Department 13 CEO, Lee Croft. “Through instant and early threat detection, Scout13 can protect sites, assets and people anywhere in the world.”
