Detecting, localizing and disrupting RC drones
Protective measures can only be taken after a threat is detected. To effectively counter the threat, early warning is critical – every second counts. When R&S®ARDRONIS detects commercial drone activity, it automatically classifies the type of drone signal, determines the direction of the drone and its pilot, and disrupts the radio control link to prevent the drone from reaching its target.
The majority of commercial remote controlled drones are controlled (uplink) via frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS), a modern frequency agile waveform. Another major family of drones is controlled (uplink) via WLAN. Signals transmitted from the drones (downlink) are typically FHSS, wideband or WLAN signals.
