Chess develops new C-UAS solutions

12th June 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Chess Dynamics has launched two automated UAS protection systems designed to protect airports and other critical infrastructure from rogue drone attacks.

Based on the AUDS C-UAS system, the new solutions offer protection within the airport perimeter and flightpath for up to 10km from the runway.

Based on two elements – AirGuard - protecting the airport perimeter, and AirShield - protecting the flightpath, the systems are configured to the specific requirements and desired level of security of each installation.

AirGuard is a versatile, fully automated solution that creates a 3D detection and protection zone around the perimeter of the airport. Incorporating multiple sensors including radar, acoustic sensors, radio frequency direction-finders and electro-optical (EO) video tracking technology, the system automatically detects and tracks airborne objects and flags an alert to the operator. 

AirShield offers Air Traffic Control (ATC) operations with an automated UAV detection and alert solution to maximise protection of the flightpath up to 10km from the runway, enabling rapid decisions to be made, including ordering aircraft to divert their course, should a threat be identified.

Installed as a self-contained and stand-alone 3D radar EO solution, AirShield can be fully integrated into existing ATC infrastructure. It is capable of auto-alerting operators using radar detection and automatically enables real-time tracking and classification using multi-spectrum EO video capability. The system is able to provide ATC with fast and accurate location, flight velocity and bearing data until the point where the UAV is no longer a danger to aircraft.
