Mitigating rogue drone threat by cyber-takeover
Counter-drone specialists D-Fend Solutions and Liteye Systems are coming together in a new partnership to improve rouge drone detection and broaden operator response to threats. Their combined capability will allow for multiple detection options and an in-depth defense mechanism, with responses tailored to specific scenarios.
According to the two companies, a system integration between their products EnforceAir and SHIELD has resulted in a new, more robust counter-drone solution called SHIELD-Cyber.
This multilayered solution is capable of addressing complex drone threats from both RF control and RF silent waypoint navigation. The system uses EnforceAir’s radio frequency detection in conjunction with radar detection, track, and ID to positively identify the targeted drones.
Basically, EnforceAir provides data about the drone type, protocol, and frequency to classify the threat. And SHIELD operators utilize this information to determine which frequencies to…
