R&S ARDRONIS launches

10th June 2016 - 11:37 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rohde & Schwarz has introduced its R&S ARDRONIS radio-monitoring solution to identify UAV control signals, and locate and potentially stop the UAV, the company announced on 8 June.

The solution allows law enforcement agencies to locate the operator of remote controlled small UAVs for intervention. R&S ARDRONIS automatically detects the remote control of a small UAV within a radius of 1km.

The R&S ARDRONIS monitors signals in relevant frequency bands, using a library of UAV control signal profiles to detect and classify signals. Remote controls for small UAVs typically operate in the 2.4-5.8GHz ISM band and also other frequency bands such as 433MHz or 4.3GHz.

R&S ARDRONIS can also be used to intentionally interrupt drone control signals to prevent the drone from performing a safety-critical manoeuvre. In such instances, only the signals for controlling the drones are disturbed and other signals are not affected. If a UAV transmits a video downlink, this signal can also be located, with the information displayed on a map.
