DroneShield releases DroneLocator firmware update

DroneShield has released a major firmware update – DroneLocator – applicable to the company’s global inventory of C-UAS systems.

Remote ID, designed to broadcast critical aircraft information, including location data, flight information and pilot details, is becoming increasingly important to operators tasked with managing low-altitude airspace. The proprietary DroneLocator solution enables detection of a variety of remote ID signals by the company’s man-portable, platform-mounted or fixed site C-UAS. DroneLocator will provide users with information such as:

  • Drone location (latitude, longitude & altitude);
  • Pilot location (latitude & longitude);
  • Drone home location (latitude & longitude);
  • Drone serial number (unique identifier);
  • Drone speed.

DroneLocator will detect and track legal, compliant aircraft, while the DroneShield RFAI artificial intelligence engine – updated quarterly – offers a continuing solution for unregistered and hostile drones. The two solutions can be run simultaneously on a single DroneShield device, running AI processing on edge and operating in an air-gapped, internet-denied environment.

Other advantages accruing from the update include:

  • Better performance in high noise environments through major improvements to the detection algorithms, including an advanced convolutional neural network;
  • Availability of maps on embedded devices for added situational awareness on DroneSentry-X devices;
  • An improved GUI offers users expanded detection and logging data.
