Mission Experience: Airspace security via reliable detection of and effective countermeasures against uncooperative UAS
Since early 2015, ESG, together with Rohde & Schwarz, Diehl has developed the fully-integrated, modular and scalable solution GUARDION to counter the threat of unauthorized drones.
GUARDION utilizes the most suitable state-of-the-art sensor and effector components on the market for automatic detection and classification, verification and defence, connected by ESG’s C4ISR system TARANIS®.
The presentation will focus on the mission experience gathered inter alia in protecting the G7 summit in Elmau 2015, the presidential state visit of POTUS Obama in 2016, or most recently the G20 summit in Hamburg 2017 in close cooperation with German Federal police Forces.
The range and scope of threats and risks posed by unauthorized drones towards major public events, but also to safety-sensitive infrastructure and facilities such as power stations, industrial testing grounds and plants, governmental properties, correctional facilities and airports must be anticipated in any comprehensive security infrastructure.
While most countries are currently introducing legislation establishing operation regulations and no-fly-zones, there is still a lack of legal clarity surrounding this and the question remains, how these conditions are to be enforced?
Authorities, security personnel and private companies are thus in dire need of reliable technology and sustainable strategies to effectively manage the rising threat from above.
The dynamic complexity of the UAS threat calls for a sophisticated multi-sensor solution, as operationally verified via GUARDION’s mission experience, thus connecting viable technology via ESG`s C4ISR system TARANIS® of military background to the information and security infrastructure used in the specific environment.
ESG's mission as a hardware-independent technology consultant and system integrator is to provide a valuable contribution to the protection of order and security of airspaces and critical infrastructure using state-of-the-art technology towards our vision of widespread airspace security, a resulting significant reduction in the opportunities for misuse of UAS for criminal and terroristic purposes, as well as enhanced perspectives for the constructive use of UAS.
