Radar Sensors Provide Airborne & Ground-Based Drone Detection

Ainstein’s introduces two products within its Ultra Long Range UAV radar series: the Ultra Long Range Airborne (ULAB-D1) and Ultra Long Range Ground-Based (ULGB-D1) radars, capable of precise detection at distances beyond 1,000 meters. The company’s ultra-long-range UAV radar systems address the need for highly precise and cost-effective tools to minimize disaster risks and keep assets and classified information safe. For high-security facilities, such as government buildings and airports, or critical infrastructure, such as water treatment facilities and mass transit systems, the need for drone detection is especially high.

 

Now available for customized integration with aerial vehicle manufacturers, the ULAB-D1 is optimized for air-to-air manned and UAVs beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operation. The ULGB-D1 is optimized for ground-to-air drone detection and monitoring and can be integrated and deployed by perimeter security solutions and service providers. Both feature Digital Beam Forming for highly precise elevation measurement and real-time processing for 3D detection, with speed measurement for more than 100 targets, bringing enhanced security capabilities to airborne and ground-based radar solutions.

 

For airborne-based drone detection radar, the ULAB-D1 provides:

  • A compact sensor capable of integrating into high-speed and heavy-duty UAS platforms
  • Air-to-air detection and avoidance capability for BVLOS operations
  • Detection and tracking range of up to 1000 meters for manned and unmanned airborne vehicles
  • All-weather detection and tracking 

For ground-based drone detection radar, the ULGB-D1 provides:

  • Data to UAV Traffic Management Systems
  • Detection for non-cooperative intruders and cooperative targets in the operating airspace for management of localized commercial UAS operations
  • A compact and portable sensor, ideal for temporary UAS flight operations
  • Two modes of operation:
  • An industry first rotating stand enabling 360-degree coverage for intrusion detection, threats, and anomalous activity
  • A portable radar patch to cover the most critical areas at events such as concerts, sporting events, and more
