Our counter UAS ecosystem. Non-kinetic,non-jamming; mobile or fixed.

 

In an era of advancing technology, the proliferation of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has soared to unprecedented heights, presenting both opportunities and challenges. While drones offer remarkable capabilities across various industries, their potential for misuse raises significant concerns, particularly in sensitive airspace. Counter UAS (CUAS), a critical component in the ongoing battle to safeguard the skies against unauthorized drone activities.

The evolving nature of drone technology poses a challenge for traditional airspace security measures. As drones become more sophisticated and accessible, the risk of misuse escalates. However, proactive CUAS initiatives offer a potent defence against potential threats. CUAS solutions can leverage a combination of radar, radio frequency (RF) sensors, electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) cameras, radar and advanced algorithms to detect and mitigate unauthorized drone activity. Real-time data analysis and rapid response capabilities are integral components of a robust CUAS ecosystem.

However, many systems rely on jamming to mitigate UAS threats which presents difficulties in managing airspace that may be used by ‘friendly’ as well as ‘foe’ systems. Wide area jamming of UAS in this context can prove to be sub-optimal and potentially enhancing risk to other airspace users.
 

Department 13 ATLAS, SCOUT and DART solutions

ATLAS, SCOUT and DART comprise a specifically engineered CUAS ecosystem to identify, log, track and manipulate the unique radio frequency patterns that UAS emit. This allows agencies to safely and discreetly counter and remove drone threat without the risk associated with kinetic or jamming solutions.

Counter UAS (CUAS) 1
 

ATLAS

ATLAS is our cloud-based drone management platform. It facilitates live monitoring on all drone activity within your operational area and allows a user to instantly differentiate between known and unknown drones, delivering real-time awareness of potential risks or threats from unauthorised drones and operators.

Our SCOUT or DART systems listen for the unique radio frequency patterns that UAS (unmanned aerial systems) and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) emit, including drones and their operators. SCOUT correlates these signals against Department 13’s comprehensive library of drone fingerprints. Once a unique UAV fingerprint is detected, SCOUT sends alerts and starts logging the activity and information in ATLAS.

ATLAS, SCOUT and DART work together to form Australia’s leading drone observation system. They seamlessly integrate to monitor and detect drone threats in your airspace within a five- kilometre radius, giving you the ability and advantage to respond before any damage can be done.

SCOUT

SCOUT is a passive radio frequency (RF) based CUAS that detects and tracks drones and controllers. Scout listens for the unique radio signal drones and controllers broadcast, translating into real-time intelligence displayed in Department 13’s user interface – ATLAS. As a software driven capability, SCOUT remains up to date with emerging threats through the continuous additions of capability into its threat library. With a range of deployment and connectivity configurations based on user needs, SCOUT provides the core capability to any drone protection solution.

Defence. MOB and BOB perimeter protection from ISR and kinetic threats delivered by commercial drone systems.

An ecosystem that mitigates commercial ISR and kinetic threats drone threats

.
Our suite of drone detection and Counter Drone capabilities are applicable to a range of domestic and front line military operations from the protection if intelligence gathering and potential threat vectors from weaponised commercial drone systems.

The system does not use jamming, instead relying on the ability to manipulate the flight controls of the targeted drone. This allows airspace to be controlled, rather than creating dead zones usually associated with wide area jamming techniques.

ATLAS when connected to DART hardware, offers airspace protection and threat mitigation through the delivery of:

  • check_circle Unparalleled situational awareness
  • check_circle Instant intelligence assessment
  • check_circle Available as a SAAS or locally hosted deployment
  • check_circle Realtime location and flight paths
  • check_circle Data logging and summary reports for easy forensics / evidence collation
  • check_circle Phone, tablet and desktop UI
  • check_circle RF detect and mitigate
  • check_circle Non-jamming, non Kinetic, allowing airspace to be kept open for friendly systems
  • check_circle High and low frequency bands supported allowing cover of major and bespoke drone types
  • check_circle Mobile and stationary mounting

Law enforcement and emergency scene airspace protection from drone interference.

Removing threats and abating risk during emergency management

The prevalence of drones and their relative sophistication offers a variety of risks when addressing law enforcement or emergency situations. The ATLAS, SCOUT and DART Counter UAS ecosystem offers a unique means of managing airspace during an incident by identifying and mitigating drone threats.

Ensuring law enforcement and emergency management agencies have the tools to protect and preserve our domestic security from the adversarial threat of drones. Our capabilities give the respective agencies the ability to detect and assess threats early, and if needed act swiftly.

ATLAS and DART provide law enforcement agencies with the following counter drone benefits:

  • check_circle Unparalleled situational awareness
  • check_circle Instant intelligence assessment
  • check_circle Available as a SAAS or locally hosted deployment
  • check_circle Realtime location and flight paths
  • check_circle Data logging and summary reports for easy forensics / evidence collation
