Airports & Critical Infrastructure

Airports & Critical Infrastructure

Along with the global rise in asymmetric conflicts between state forces and terror organizations, the use of drones for different attack missions is also increasing. The engagement of drones poses a much more dynamic, unexpected threats, starting from cross-border intelligence gathering & surveillance, communication interferences & data interception, illicit smuggling, and up to weaponized drone strikes.

In recent years, the threat of commercial drones has been felt and dealt with in all arenas. In the military arena – drones are used as a weapon of choice by terror organizations, (mainly in A-symmetrical warfare) and by hostile countries trying to attack tactical and strategic targets.

Commercial drones are a risk to civil targets, such as airports & critical infrastructures, no less than they are to the military arena. Whether it is a negligent flight of drones by amateurs or is a well-planned attack in criminal or nationalist events, civil aviation is the soft underbelly of homeland security, being easy to critically disrupt. 

Spectrum Dominance in airports, prisons, and critical infrastructures is a complex mission whose effectiveness is largely determined by the systems’ deployment architecture throughout the perimeter. Ensuring safe, accurate and efficient drone detection and/or jamming is largely dependent on the ability to tailor the solution architecture in terms of the sensors/jammers deployment plan, taking into consideration the restrictions and required cautions, when operating on the same aerial domain, with manned aircrafts.

The DroneNet Platform

Netline’s DroneNet system, in its fixed Installation configuration, offers a stationary counter-drone solution designed to provide a Multi-layered defense for Detection & Identification, Tracking and Jamming of hostile drones.

Netline’s drone detection & tracking segments are fully passive, enabling safe operation in a spectral saturated environment such as airports, without being subjected to any regulations by the FCC/FAA.  

DroneNet Stationary- Defense Layers

The DroneNet stationary is comprised of two segments:

Sensing Segment – Drone Detection
Tracking Segment – Drone Tracking
