What is CUAS Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System and how does it detect and track UAV and drones?
C-UAS has become an generic term for systems that designed to detect, track and disrupt airborne threats such drones and UAV's they are also referred to as Anti Drone or Anti the most common types rely on RF triangulation or passive RF detection that detects a UAV by its radio frequency (passive RF) Higher end solutions like Infiniti pair RF detection with 3D radar in order to track a target even if it has no RF signal. Once a solution is detected its than tracking using an EO/IR PTZ camera, if considered a threat a countermeasure is employed in most system this is limited it an RF jammer which disrupts or takes over the control and GPS of the drone often forcing it to land. Infiniti ADDS Airborne Drone Defense System utilizes jammers but also integrates UAV;s with net guns, as well as HEW high energy weapons depending on the type of threat and distance needed for interdiction.
All these solutions and technologies fall under the category of C-CUAS or Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System which was originally a military term is now commonplace to describe systems used to protect against drones and UAV’s. Drones where once a product limited to the military domain but in recent years this technology has exploded thanks to companies like DJI and is now widely available in commercial, industrial as well as consumers. Drones offer numerous benefits when used properly but due to small size and weight and their ability to be controlled from 1-10km away they pose a significant security risk as they can easily bypass virtually all traditional physical security measures making it very hard to ensure these drones are not used to spy, trespass, or endanger the public by flying or delivering payloads in unauthorized airspace such as hospital Heli pads or airports. Infiniti offers a variety of anti drones and CUAS solutions to detect, tracking and eliminate air born threats for both commercial and military applications.
There are so many types of drones and different ways they can be used any UAV or drone mitigation system should be designed around the customers needs and requirements as well as the type of threat they are likely to encounter. Protecting against a hobby drone, commercial drone, a modified drone (Making them immune to jamming or RF detection) or a military drone all require very different technologies that come at different price points. Many off the shelf solutions rely solely on RF for detection and mitigation making them useless against modified drones that emit no RF signal meaning they cant be jammed or detected by most solutions which is why it is important to buy an Anti drone system from a company who is able to offer different technologies and scale a solution to your needs, and that Anti Drone systems should work in tandem with your ground based perimeter security in order to maximize the value and provide complete air and ground protection where if deployed right they can share the same operators and some of the same sub components like the EO/IR PTZ camera.
Mobile Anti Drone Elimination:
MADE Mobile Anti Drone/UAV Elimination is a hand countermeasure system by Infiniti Electro-optics that eliminates aerial threats posed by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) & aerial drones, that are either remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or are following predetermined flight pattern using GPS.
The Made (Mobile Anti-Drone/UAV Elimination) uses directional high-intensity RF waves in order to completely block both manual control as well GPS positioning to immediately eliminate hostile UAV & drones from 1~2km away before they can conduct surveillance or deploy or drop off their payload.
The MADE unlike other anti-drone systems is a complete turnkey solution with the battery and jammers all built into a lightweight package that weighs under 10 pounds. The MADE was designed to look like a rifle for easy transport, deployment, and targeting making the ideal solution to deter and eliminate threats posed by airtel vehicles that completely bypass existing physical security measures.
ADDS Automatic Drone Defense System
By the end of 2021Infiniti will be offering a long range automatic anti-UAV/ Drone system that will provide detection small UAV like the DJI phantom at up to 5km away with 360-degree panoramic coverage with no blind spots and the ability to visually track, recognize and eliminate the drone up to 2km away. The System is comprised of a state-of-the-art military radar, an advanced long range EO/IR Visible and Thermal Infrared Day night PTZ surveillance camera system and powerful broad spectrum RF jammer. This automated system will provide 24/7 detection, tracking and elimination of UAV/drones with the option for static jammers for permanent installs making it ideal for mobile, perimeter security, events, airports, and high-value targets both rural and urban safe from aerial threats with up to a 10km diameter.
Infiniti Electro-Optics combines the most advanced infrared electro-optics and video surveillance technologies to create customized solutions for high-end surveillance, perimeter defense, and 24/7 threat detection. We work with MWIR & LWIR thermal infrared imaging, ZLID laser illumination, SWIR, HD long-range visible and NIR imaging, gyro stabilization, radar integration, and more. Most companies only offer fixed configurations, however because of the high cost and complexity of these technologies, we prefer to custom-build complete end-to-end solutions based directly on the customer’s specifications and budget. Every situation is unique and has different needs; we want to ensure that you’re getting the best value solution with the performance you require.
Infiniti Electro-Optics is a company that is continually striving to push the level of surveillance security by creating and using the most advanced technology available in order provide the best possible solution from cost effective RF solution for industrial and commercial application a full C-RAM and air base defense solution for military and government.
