Rohde & Schwarz has announced the launch of its ARDRONIS Counter-UAS solution to provide drone control uplink signal detection and disrupting capabilities, even under challenging signal scenarios. Modular and scalable, R&S ARDRONIS can be deployed on a variety of platforms and readily integrated to suit specific threat profiles, with numerous systems operational with government users. According to the company: “R&S ARDRONIS effectively detects and disrupts a UAS control uplink signal at a very early point. It monitors remote control uplink and drone downlink signals (in all relevant frequency bands) and can detect and locate those at an approx. range of up to 5-7 km under optimal conditions.”
R&S ARDRONIS combines sensors to form a reliable, high-performance solution for, e.g. securing a predefined airspace against drones, according to Dietmar Vahldiek, Executive Vice President Monitoring and Network Testing, Rohde & Schwarz.
“Highly sensitive antennas and monitoring receivers collect the extremely agile platforms’ signals. Through repeated involvement in protecting high-profile events and high-ranking VIPs, R&S ARDRONIS has proven to be a valuable asset for security services involved and a future-proof solution.”
With its partners ESG and Diehl Defence, Rohde & Schwarz offers a modular multisensor UAS detection and defence system called GUARDION that includes the R&S ARDRONIS sensors and countermeasures.
