Terma has released an innovative drone detection capability for another radar series, marking a significant leap forward in drone detection technology with a system encompassing a range of capabilities and precision detection that goes beyond conventional radar systems.

Previously, the company launched a similar capability for naval surveillance radars of the SCANTER 6000 series. Now, Terma is augmenting land-based radars of the SCANTER 5000 series with superb drone detection capability.

Armed with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, the radar can comprehensively analyze incoming data in order to accurately detect drones, differentiating between UAVs and other flying objects e.g. flocks of birds and aircraft.

Offering an astounding detection range of 10km for 5kg drones, the SCANTER 5000 series outperform most other products in the market and provides operators with an extended response time, enhancing situational awareness and response capabilities. 

Notably, the drone detection capability not only determines the direction of the drone or object but also classifies it, empowering operators with invaluable information for informed decision-making.

To consolidate confidence, the counter drone detection capability of the SCANTER 5000 operates seamlessly in a meticulous process divided into four crucial steps: Detect, Track, Classify, and Identify. This ensures the highest level of confidence in the results. 

Terma’s drone detection aims to stand as a testament to innovation and reliability, delivering consistent results. It tailored for a wide range of radar applications, including operators in ports, coastlines, offshore platforms, and critical infrastructure, proving particularly valuable for safeguarding wind farms and maritime oil platforms. 

Additionally, it can be deployed in airports for drone detection and bird monitoring, enhancing safety and security.

Jesper Tolstrup, Chief Specialist, Radar, Products & Programs at Terma, said; “We are thrilled to introduce our groundbreaking add-on, a true game-changer in drone detection technology. 

“With its unparalleled precision, comprehensive data analysis, and impressive range, our drone detection capability sets a new standard for the industry. We are proud to offer this cutting-edge solution to our valued customers, enhancing security and safety across a range of applications.”
