Port of Amsterdam trials MADS
The Port of Amsterdam is testing Martek’s Marine Anti Drone System (MADS) to explore UAS usage in its airspace.
The four-week trial will focus on building an understanding of how, where and why UAS are flying within the Port of Amsterdam's airspace. Many port customers are preparing to use UAS for infrastructure inspection and measurement of environmental parameters. The data collected from this trial will have influence on the future use of UAS across the 650ha port area.
The MADS system will support the port by monitoring legal and illegal flights across its land by detecting and identifying UAS within a 5km range, providing GPS positioning of both UAS and pilot together with UAS speed and heading. Configurable and escalating stage alarms in real time allow the UAS intentions to be assessed in good time to decide on appropriate defence actions.
