Frequentis is an integrator and consultant for counter UAV solutions with an operational perspective. The company builds upon its 70-year history in safety critical domains and ensures common situational awareness and efficient coordination of drone incidents across all agencies: air navigation service providers, aerodrome operators, law enforcement units and other authorities. Frequentis consultants will help define roles, responsibilities, procedures, KPIs, operational requirements and best-fit third-party sensor/effector systems and technology, based on best practice developed with customers, regulators and authorities. Frequentis SWIM-based data exchange platform will integrate and fuse existing systems (surveillance, flight data management, communication and coordination tools) with new systems (UTM, Drone Detection, Incident Management). Frequentis incident and crisis management solutions will display and correlate all information in a geographic information system, which coordinates communications and collaboration across agencies.
Frequentis’ goal is to ensure an efficient management of drone incursions across all stakeholders. The solution creates the missing link between organisations (airports, ANSPs and law enforcement), existing infrastructure (ATC air situation, police and blue force tracking) and new systems (UTM and drone detection).
FALKE is designed to provide the link between relevant stakeholders (airport, police, air traffic control, airlines), existing infrastructure (air situation, air traffic management, ground situation police) and new systems (Unmanned Traffic Management, drone detection) making it possible not only to detect drones, but also to distinguish cooperative from non-cooperative drones. Air traffic control will be supplied with safety alerts in relation to the current air situation. The ability to intercept drones that enter restricted airspace will make it possible to scale future technologies for drone detection and to optimise the cooperation and communication of stakeholders to guarantee a common understanding of the air situation according to Frequentis.
In December 2019 Frequentis and Hensoldt announced they will combine C-UAS competencies. Frequentis Comsoft will provide mature components in the areas of UTM/ATM/drone detection, data fusion and exchange (MosaiX SWIM), shared situational awareness and ATM-grade surveillance data automation (SDDS-NG, MSDF, PRISMA), cross-agency incident management (ICM), as well as operational requirement analysis (control room consulting). The Hensoldt group will bring sensor solutions (XPELLER, SPEXER), effector and drone defence technology (XPELLER, VADR).
