Increasing air traffic safety through effective drone detection


Wednesday 8 March

Delivering an integrated airspace for the future

Session Overview

Drones that fly above prohibited areas are an increasing security risk. Remotely controlled drones repeatedly violate personal privacy, the boundaries of protected areas and air traffic safety. Regardless of the drone pilot’s intention, drones pose a serious safety risk.

A multisensor approach is imperative in nearly all counter-drone scenarios, but is particularly important in the vicinity of airports. Radar technology is used especially to locate drones in the airspace. However, to locate the pilot, which is the only means to minimize costly downtimes, other technologies are needed. Learn more about remote control signal detections and in particular how to address the challenges encountered in the airport environment
