Cerbair adds Drone ID identification to Hydra systems

At DSEI in London this week, Cerbair has announced a major software upgrade to enhance the capabilities of its Hydra range of drone detection systems, adding the Drone ID identification solution.

As the proliferation of drones continues to test those responsible for identifying and countering them, one of the abiding challenges is to be able to identify and discriminate between collaborative and non-collaborative drones – separating ‘mere’ dangerous flight in restricted areas from real threats. Additionally, Remote ID legislation is gaining momentum worldwide, and drone manufacturers are now developing proprietary remote identification solutions, thereby playing a crucial role in the management of low-altitude airspace.

Cerbair uses its own entirely French-developed Drone ID technology to enable Hydra systems to detect drone transmissions of remote identification signals, providing operators with critical information such as drone location, trajectory and speed, take-off point, operator location and drone serial number. Fusing the identification, detection and localisation capabilities into a single RF detection systems allows operators to protect flight-sensitive environments, and create customised geofencing and ‘no-fly’ zones, thus adding additional layers of protection in sensitive areas, benefiting both unmanned traffic management (UTM) and counter-UAS missions.

Designed to ensure the acquisition of capability can be achieved even within limited budget resources, Drone ID is an example of Cerbair’s strategy of offering major enhancements to the existing product range via a novel software licensing model. Now, identification of DJI drones, discrimination between collaborative and non-collaborative drones, and localisation of drones and their pilots is possible with a single RF detection system.
