DeTect installs its dual function bird and drone radar at US military installations

Drone detection company DeTect Inc reports installation and operation of its dual function bird and drone radar, the MERLIN BDR-DDR, at US military installations. Developed for real-time, tactical operational birdstrike avoidance, MERLIN now has TRUE3D for simultaneous bird and drone detecting capabilities.

According to the press release, the proven technology can be integrated with radar-directed electro-optic, infrared (EOIR) camera system and DroneWatcher RF-DR radiofrequency drone detection & interdiction. The system comes in a fixed or mobile design, fully self-contained with all system hardware, software and integration included.

Recently returned from installing the system at a US Air Force Base in California, DeTect Project Manager Mike Bierman said “The dual configuration is a game changer for air bases and commercial airports that can now have a two-in-one system for tracking both birds and drones. DeTect’s dynamic multibeam TRUE3D radar scans and updates target data across the entire 3D volume, continually out to 5+ km in all weathers 24/7.”
