RF sensor for small-UAS detection and threat mitigation
Counter-drone technology provider Dedrone (San Francisco, CA) has announced a new radio frequency (RF) sensor offering new and advanced features for detecting small unmanned air systems (UAS) incursions.

An upgraded version of the company's RF-100 sensor, the Dedrone RF-160 features an increased detection range, streamlined installation process, and integrated LTE. The device quantifies how many drones are in the user's airspace and provides early detection of drones.

"The RF-160 can be quickly installed and provides a baseline of information on all airspace activity, regardless of the type of manufacturer, or even if it is a home-made drone," says Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone. "Lower airspace security starts with detection, and the RF-160 is the most advanced product to provide our customers with the analytics they need to act upon sUAS threats to their airspace."

New features of the RF-160 include the following:

  • Integrates LTE for fast installation and access to comprehensive data for drone risk analysis: The RF-160 can be installed within a few minutes and without any specialized IT knowledge. Only needing power supply and a mounting pole, it automatically connects to the Dedrone Cloud via LTE and immediately detects drones. An on-premise server is not required.
  • Provides detection range of up to 5 km: A single RF-160 has an average detection range of 1.6 km and up to 5 km for certain drones. This range extends when one or more RF-160s are working together, and more information on drone activity can be generated when layering with other detection technologies, including the RF-300, radar, and PTZ cameras.
  • Incorporates an advanced design for urban environments: Urban areas have more radio frequency activity from radio communication, cell phones, GPS, and other technologies. The RF-160 meets the needs of organizations in such environments a with higher potential of RF interference.

The RF-160 is available for order and will begin delivery in March 2020.
