Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) are freely available for commercial use but can pose a huge threat to government and corporates alike, as it can be used for industrial espionage by taking images and videos, drug smuggling, warfare etc. In light of the above Areta Anti-Drone Technologies was established to deal with the risks and threats that unmanned aerial vehicles currently pose.
Our Automatic Anti-Drone Systems can force UAVs to land or return by searching, detecting, finding and identifying UAVs by direction finding and positioning with its radio direction finding subsystem and radar detection subsystem, confirming, positioning, locking and tracking the target with its optical detection and tracking subsystem, and jamming, blocking and decoying UAVs by interfering their control and navigation signals with its radio interference subsystem.
The potential threat posed by an inexpensive drone carrying a home-made bomb near an airplane or a football field is now apparent to everybody; however, little has been done to mitigate the issue. Counter-drone technology, also refered to as anti-drone, refers to systems that are used to detect and/or intercept unmanned aircrafts. These systems are also known as counter-UAS, C-UAS, or counter-UAV.
Airports, critical infrastructure, and even stadiums are on the lookout for the growing threat of drones. In the past 2 years, there have been numerous incidents of drones infiltrating secure airspace. Luckily, most of these events were not due to terrorist attacks, but rather small drones flying in the vicinity of airplanes, bases, or large public spaces.
However, recent incidents, such as, reports by the FBI that organized crime groups are using drones for their operations and Saudi security forces shooting down a drone near a palace belonging to King Salman, are only two examples indicating that crime and terror groups are starting to use drones as weapons.
