The Dutch company Robin Radar Systems has made a software update available that increases the range of the drone detection systems ELVIRA and IRIS by a factor of two. The update is based on the latest developments in machine learning. Depending on the system used, it is now possible to detect unwanted drones up to 2 km away.

Robin Radar Extends Range Of Drone Detection Systems Through Software Update

Larger detection range

The low-cost drone radar ELVIRA was previously capable of detecting a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone up to a distance of 600 meters. Thanks to the new software update, the range is now 1.2 to 1.5 km. And where the flagship IRIS first detected a DJI Inspire 2 up to 1.4 km away, it is now 2 to 2.2 km, depending on the conditions.

According to Robin Radar, thanks to the upgrade, IRIS is currently the best performing compact 3D drone radar when it comes to remotely classifying drones. The basis of the system is formed by unique patented ‘back to back’ phased array radars, with a detection range of 360º.
