The Polish airport authority Polskie Porty Lotnicze (PPL) is to equip Chopin Airport, Warsaw, with an anti-drone system supplied by Polish manufacturer Advanced Protection Systems (APS).
PPL says it has been checking market opportunities for a long time and conducted talks with domestic and foreign suppliers of counter drone solutions. As a result of the analyzes carried out, PPL invited the Polish company Advanced Protection Systems SA (APS) to offer advanced and proven anti-drone systems. The APS system is due to be operational at Chopin Airport in June 2023.
Currently, APS provides solutions for the Polish Armed Forces, including a system called SKYctrl. SKYCtrl performs the detection of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) simultaneously using a 3D MIMO radar, acoustic, vision and radio sensor. The solution enables detection and neutralization of all LSS (Low-Slow-Small) objects, i.e. commercial, professional and industrial drones. The SKYCtrl system operates around the clock and in all weather conditions. APS has customers in Europe (Great Britain, Norway, Estonia, Finland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine), in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE) and in Asia (South Korea, Singapore, India). The recipients are uniformed services, the army and critical infrastructure managers.
APS anti-drone solutions are designed to be easy to use, assemble or disassemble. The software recognizes whether the approaching object is an airplane, a bird or a drone, and can introduce the object to the so-called white-list, i.e. a list of devices that have permission to fly in a specific zone. The system is equipped with a jammer device for neutralizing an unmanned aerial vehicle.
