DroneShield has integrated the RADA RPS-82 radar into its flagship DroneSentry C-UAS system, satisfying the requirements of its most demanding multi-sensor users.
The RPS-82 provides DroneSentry operators with significantly enhanced radar detection, classification and tracking range for wide area, multi-mission requirements. With DroneSentry’s compatibility with multiple radar platforms, the company can offer both high-performance and cost-effective solutions to meet any customer requirement and/or budget. RADA is internationally recognised as a leading C-UAS radar system manufacturers, with a radar product family fielded widely by US DoD and partner forces worldwide.
The RPS-82 was integrated into the DroneSentry system of sensors, rapidly leveraging the modular and open architecture of DroneSentry-C2, DroneShield’s enterprise common operating picture platform.
“DroneShield is unique globally, in being both a sensor maker and an integrator, developing and manufacturing all of our products, except for the hardware of radars and cameras, where we partner with best-in-breed specialist manufacturers,” said DroneShield CTO, Angus Bean.
In parallel, the company has significantly upgraded its Blue Mountains remotely operated facility, to scale up and streamline platform development and testing. This includes field lessons from real-world deployments, including Ukraine and other environments where drone threats have risen in prominence. The fully equipped site will allow the shortening of development cycles and delivery of firmware updates to customers more efficiently. The upgraded test facility includes the integration of the RADA RPS-82 radar system, permanently installed onsite. The upgraded site complements the company’s US testing facility in northern Virginia.
