Drone Detection Services

Locate drones and their pilots

Drones are becoming more affordable and readily available, despite the large benefits of drone use in the right hands, inevitably there is misuse of the technology.

Using counter drone technology you can detect, identify and track drone use to mitigate against threats whether that be flying contraband into prisons, illicit substances into events and concerts, personal privacy incursions, digital interception for industrial espionage, or the potential for a catastrophic attack using weaponised aircraft.

Drone detection for stadiums

Drones in a stadium's airspace can jeopradise the potential safety of all those in the stadium and surrounding area. Leading to potential halts in play or events, while a drone is in the vacinity. Use of Drone Detection technology can help to identify when drones are in the airspace and can lead to the locating of the pilot and a quick neutralisation of any potential risks.

The potential benefits of drone detection technology

The use of counter-drone technology can assist with ensuring the safety of spectators, participants, players and infrastructure during an event or a sports fixture.

Auditing the operating procedures and security functions around drone use prior to an event can reduce the risks of drones leading to an interruption.

The prevention of drones operating in a stadium's air space can help to prevent copyright infringement.

Drone detection for airports

Drones in an airports airspace can greatly increase the safety risks of the airports operations with an increase in the risk of aircraft collision or potential threats from surveillance or weaponised drones. Even the smallest drone can cause significant harm to an aircraft and their presence can lead to runway closures and significant delays, resulting in the Introduction of Article 94B of the Air Navigation Order (ANO) - small unmanned aircraft: restrictions on flights that are over or near Aerodromes. The use of drone detection technology can help to identify when drones are in the airspace and can lead to locating the pilot and a quick neutralisation of any potential risks.

The potential benefits of drone detection technology

The use of counter drone technology will reduce the risk of collision in the airports airspace.

The detailed audit and honest appraisal will decrease the likelihood of a security breach and increase flight safety.

Drone detection for prisons

Drones in a prison's airspace can greatly increase the risk of contraband being smuggled into prisons, be it weaponry, drugs, mobile phones or other items all of which increase the level of danger in a prison environment. The use of drone detection technology can help to identify when drones are in the airspace and can lead to the locating of the pilot and a quick neutralisation of any potential risks.

The potential benefits of drone detection technology

The use of counter-drone technology can greatly reduce the opportunity for attempts to smuggle contraband such as drugs, mobile phones or even weapons into a prison.

Valuable data is provided on drone activities on the site, for example the number of drone intrusions, drone models and recurring drones.

Drone detection for security

Drones in the wrong hands can present a significant threat to both a corporations physical security and their cybersecurity. Drone technology is being developed to allow drones to identify and follow targets, spy on operations extract data and infiltrate networks potentially limiting the success rate of existing physical and cyber security procedures.

The potential benefits of drone detection technology

The early identification of present drones will allow a corporation to put in place additional security measures to protect itself.

The ability to locate the drone pilot will allow for the potential alleviation of the threat.

Drone detection for personal privacy

When operated irresponsibly drones can present a risk to personal privacy, high value targets could become victims to surveillance drones, press intrusion and drones operated by the paparazzi. Drone detection technology can notify a person when a drone is in the area and can allow steps to be taken to ensure a persons privacy is protected.

The potential benefits of drone detection technology

Early identification of a drones presence in the area can give a person an opportunity to remain out of sight.

Being aware that there is a drone in the airspace can allow for an increase in the physical security of a persons property.

The identification of returning drones and the ability to localise the pilot can identify specific threats that can be communicated to the authorities.

Consultancy, equipment and software to counter drones

RUAS specialise in the provision of consultancy, equipment and software to bring awareness of drone operations to security staff and key personnel. We help you to integrate airspace security with existing security measures, to add to your layered defence plan. Identify aircraft and their operators, as well as mitigate the threat posed by those drones.

Understanding your threats – Our Drone Audit

RUAS will work with you to understand your perceived threats and provide an audit of your airspace including operational risks. Using drone detection technology we will monitor your airspace over an agreed period of time in order to provide data analysis of :

  • how drones are being used in the area,
  • the general flight paths of the drones,
  • where they are being flown from
  • the lengths and frequency of those flights

Mitigating your risk

Upon completion of the assessment, the information will be analysed by RUAS to provide a report and briefing in order to establish best next steps that will help you to counter drone activity. Drawing on our military experience and operational knowledge of drones along with our extensive understanding of the CAA regulations, we will provide you with an honest appraisal of your current airspace and work with your to enhance your operating procedures.
