One of the biggest issues for Critical Infrastructure are Mini Drones which are violating privacy, reconnoitring security measures and are a lethal threat, being enabled to carry explosives (e.g. with C4 composite) and guns. Meritis developed with its technical partners specialised Mini Drone Defence products.
Acoustics fill a vital gap in proximity drone detection, as line-of-sight to target is not needed for positive tracking. The drone can operate in urban canyons, cluttered areas, behind obstructions and in darkness or fog, out of range for radars and optics, but still within the earshot of the ADS-2000 acoustic sensor.
ADS-2000 is invented for 24/7 operations with little user intervention. Whenever a detection is made, the operator will receive an audiovisual warning. During an incident, the system will display a map or satellite image of the protected zone. Any intruding drones will be shown in their respective sectors.
