DroneShield has announced the deployment of its multi-sensor C-UAS DroneSentry™ system at the Altenrhein Airport in Switzerland.
The Altenrhein deployment consists of the following DroneShield solutions:
- Multiple RfOne™ units, able to detect, ID and track single or swarms of UAS in real time, at an 8km range, as well as indicating the location of the UAS pilot;
- DroneOpt™ optical verification systems, with DroneShield proprietary DroneOptID™ AI-based engine, with ability to ID and track the UAS and its payload;
- DroneSentry-C2™ command-and-control (“C2”) user interface, an intuitive, low cognitive burden C2 with the ability to alert and track the incoming UAS in real time, as well as provide extensive reporting functionality, creating a high degree of UAS flight awareness around the airport precinct.
The system is entirely passive (no emissions) with no interference to other equipment, making it well suited for the airport environment.
Timo Nielsen, Altenrhein Airport’s safety and compliance manager, commented: “We are pleased to partner with DroneShield, as the global leader in the C-UAS space, for the deployment at our airport, enabling us to receive actionable awareness of the UAS activity in our air space. Importantly, as a forward leaning airport, we welcome visits from other airports in Europe and elsewhere globally, to contact us or DroneShield, to learn more about the deployed system, and see it at a working airport facility.”
