AeroDefense, provider of fixed and mobile Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum sensing drone and pilot detection solutions, has integrated the Observation Without Limits (O.W.L.) radar ground and air detection capability with its AirWarden system.
Some critical infrastructure entities require a multi-layer technology approach to combat the threat of unauthorized drones and people. According to AeroDefense, its AirWarden RF spectrum sensing system integrated with O.W.L.’s radar technology offers a solution that detects both RF-based and radio-silent, small to large, low speed to high speed drones and their operators as soon as the drone is turned on.
To meet sophisticated drone detection users’ requests for as much data as possible to help guide security teams’ responses, the integrated system presents each detection type and method in an easily identifiable manner on AirWarden’s intuitive user interface.
“By combining the strengths of both systems, AirWarden offers our correctional facility customers a contraband prevention platform to detect and prevent airborne contraband deliveries by drone and ground-based contraband deliveries by people or vehicles,” said AeroDefense Founding CEO, Linda Ziemba. “It also gives our utility customers an integrated platform to detect both human and drone traffic at unprotected electric substations.”
The integration supports the O.W.L. GroundAware family of 2D and 3D digital beamforming radar systems used by critical infrastructure and government sectors around the world.
“We have learned firsthand that layered security is essential for comprehensive drone situational awareness,” said Tom Gates, O.W.L. president. “We are pleased to partner with AeroDefense to provide their customers an added layer of low-altitude airspace surveillance, plus simultaneous ground coverage for detecting and tracking drone operators.”
