Drone Detection Technology

RUAS understands that everyone's drone detection needs are different, and solutions have to be unique to you. RUAS will work with you to determine what is the best approach to protect your asset from any potential drone threat.

The counter drone solution that is best for you will depend on your unique environment and budget. RUAS can conduct a drone audit of your lower airspace and provide you with the best possible drone detection solution and counter measures

Below is more information on the different types of drone detection technology that is available. Get in touch with RUAS on +44 (0) 1633 835 123 to discuss what is the best approach for you.

Radio Frequency

The use of RF scanners can allow you to identify and track drones that are operating in your airspace. Drones give off a specific radio frequency signature which sensors can detect, track and identify. RF scanners are also able to give an indication of the direction in which the pilot is operating from.


Radar technology can be used to detect when and where a drone is operating within your airspace, allowing you to implement security procedures to reduce the potential threat caused by the drone

Sensor Extensions

Working alongside other drone detection technologies sensor extensions such as Electro Optical (EO) and Infra Red (IR) can be used to track and identify drones in your airspace as well as gathering forensic evidence.


Geofencing involves establishing a virtual fence around the perimeter of the area you are looking to protect. The fence prevents drones from flying into the protected area.

Electronic Counter Measures (ECM)

Although it is currently illegal to interfere with a drones signal in certain countries including the UK, ECM can interrupt a drones signal which will disrupt the pilots ability to continue the flight as intended. With drone incursions becoming more common regulations may change and this could become a viable option in the future.
