New RF-360 sensor offers enhanced situational awareness of airspace activity for security providers protecting critical infrastructure against drone threats.
Dedrone, the market leader in airspace security, today announced the launch of a new radio sensor for drone detection. In connection with Dedrone’s Drone Tracker software, the RF-360 detects, classifies and localizes unwanted or malicious drones and their remote controls on the basis of their radio signals at great distances and in areas with high radio traffic, for example in cities or at airports. The successor to the RF-300 automatically connects to the Internet and is quick and easy to install.
“Dedrone continues to innovate and meet the airspace security needs at the world’s most critical operations, including utilities, correctional facilities, government and defense operations,” shares AD Devarakonda, CEO of Dedrone. “The RF-360 provides our customers the data they need to protect their operations against unwanted drones. “ In the past year, the COVID-19 shutdowns accelerated use-cases for drones, and with more drones in the skies, come more exposed vulnerabilities. With this new sensor, Dedrone customers will continue to maintain complete airspace domain and manage their drone risk." New features of Dedrone’S RF-360 include:
Detection range of up to 5 km: Additional range provides additional reaction time for security teams to deploy security measures and prevent losses from a drone incursion. Locating the drone is key for rapid response. For areas with larger footprints, such as airports, utilities, smart cities and corporate campuses, Dedrone’s sensor provides expanded coverage with fewer sensors installed across the protected area.
Enhanced performance in RF-noisy environments: In urban environments or at airports, radio signals come from cell towers, microwave antennas, or radar systems. The RF-360 filters this “noise” to reliably and quickly detect specific drone communication signals. It can also be used on vehicles, next to high powered radar systems.
Simple setup and installation for fixed and mobile deployments: The RF-360 has integrated LTE and GPS. Once activated, Dedrone’s RF-360 sensor automatically connects to the Dedrone Cloud and immediately begins assessing airspace activity. Whether installed at a fixed or temporary site, Dedrone’s new sensor easily integrates into existing security command centers and provides additional layers of airspace data. No integration in the local IT infrastructure is necessary – only power is needed.
