Rohde & Schwarz has demonstrated a new radio-monitoring solution for detection and geolocation of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
R&S ARDRONIS can monitor UAV remote control links from the moment they are first switched on, regardless of the bandwidth being used. It was deployed at an airfield at AirPower 2016, when the Austrian Air Force used the system to guard against the security risk of commercial UAVs encroaching into airspace at the show. The system was also exhibited to a civil aviation audience in March 2017 at the World ATM Congress in Madrid.
In 2015, systems integrator ESG Elektroniksystem und Logistik selected R&S ARDRONIS as part of a complete solution for detecting and countering UAVs during the G7 summit in Germany.
