TCI’s Drone Detection technology provides field-proven, fully automated detection and geolocation of drones and their radio controllers. It can be deployed interactively by an operator, or automatically for unattended operation (providing low cost of ownership). The system scans the RF spectrum looking for the RF signature of drones and radio controllers. When a drone or controller is detected, the system geolocates the target and provides a notification. Local operators receive notifications by visual and audible alarm. Remote personnel can be notified by other mechanisms, including email and instant text message. Security personnel can then observe the location of both the drone and the controller on the integrated map and track the target’s movements. Knowing the location of the drone’s controller helps authorities pinpoint the operator for a safe and effective intervention.
TCI International and Enterprise Control Systems (ECS) have partnered to offer a new range of RF drone detection, location and countermeasure capabilities.
• BlackTALONTM. “The new platform provides RF-only drone detection, location and defeat capabilities, or the addition of radar and electro-optical sensors for more robust detection, tracking and target identification. In addition, any existing Blackbird COMINT system can be upgraded to perform full drone RF detection, location, identification, tracking and defeat.”
• Independent Claw. This is “a self-contained directional inhibitor system that combines an RF transmitter with a high-gain, multi-band directional antenna system. Claw RF Inhibitor’s sensor-agnostic, modular design means it could not be easier for an integrator looking for an RF defeat solution to harmonize seamlessly with third-party, multisensory C2 drone detection and kinetic systems, to provide world-class RF inhibition capability for C-UAS.”
• BlackSWIFTTM: Next Generation Tactical COMINT Hardware Platform. Designed to operate the Blackbird COMINT and drone detection and geolocation software, the platform provides faster scan rates, broader instantaneous bandwidths, programmable DDCs and man-portable IP67 and rack-mount configurations.
