Airspace Awareness - Assured

Next generation bi-static radar technology for drone surveillance

Currently in development, available early 2022

Disruptive technology

Emerging drone technologies have enabled disruptive threat scenarios. Protection of critical infrastructure and privacy requires the ability to detect and track drones that are small in size, autonomous, able to move slow or hover

Spherical View Radar meets this challenge with disruptive bi-static technology providing the highest likelihood and precision of modern drone’s detection and tracking in any operational area under any conditions

Spherical Radar Performance

  • Spherical field of view – 360 degrees azimuth and elevation (straight up, straight down, and all the way around) with no ‘cone of silence’
  • Coverage area can be extended indefinitely, blind spots eliminated by networking two or more systems
  • Bi-static approach enables superior detection of low-profile targets and false target filtration through radar signature analytics and machine learning
  • Detection of airborne targets with radar cross section (RCS) of 0.001 square meters (3x3 cm), at any range within the surveillance volume of 3 m to 3 km from the receiver
  • 3D positioning of the target (x,y,z coordinates) with an accuracy of 1 meter
  • Detects up to 100 targets simultaneously with 0.5 m separation, as low as 1 m above ground, at velocities from 0.0 to 500 km/h
  • Resistant to jamming; operation of system can be difficult to detect
  • Industry standard protocols (Asterix, Sapient) for integration with other systems
  • Flexible, programmable power level (0.1-10W); safe near people, does not interfere with other radio-frequency devices, no special training required
  • Flexible user interface based on custom 3D model of site enables target management, logging, history, geofencing and exclusion zones, false target filtration
  • Compact and light (less than 25 kg), easy to transport and install

Bi-static spherical 360⁰ view radar

Basic installation and principle of operation

Minimum system configuration: 1 receiver, 4 transmitters (up to 16 transmitters per 1 receiver).

Additional networked receivers and transmitters can be added to expand coverage area and eliminate blind spots
