Drone Detection techniques are based on continuous analysis of the time & frequency domains by RF sensors. Preloaded spectral signatures of all commercially available drones are used as the system’s database. During the detection phase, the DroneNet searches for activity patterns corresponding to the stored signatures and alerts once a match is found. The direction of the drone, as well as its type, are determined by the receiving RF sensors and indicated on the system’s C4I.
When trying to detect drones in a spectral-saturated environment, detection time is of the essence. The DroneNet utilizes various SIGINT techniques in order to achieve a reliable yet rapid detection on the one hand and a low rate of false alarms on the other hand, presenting the first phase out of a three steps counter drone solution.
When a drone is detected, the system alerts the operator and initiates mitigation procedures to neutralize the threat. Upon detection the RF jammers block the communication between the drone and its operator on ISM bands, as well as any GPS signals used by the drone.
Each band can be programmed to block either the entire frequency band (broadband) or to be limited to selected channels or active drones’ frequencies. Netline’s DroneNet jammer is composed of 5 bands that cover all potential drone frequencies (433MHz, 900MHz, GPS and Wi-Fi).
The system’s modular design enables future upgrade and insertion of additional frequencies and threats.
