RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Fairport, NY, USA: Saelig Company, Inc. (www.saelig.com) has introduced the Aaronia Drone Detection System (ADDS) for discovering the incursion of unwanted drones or other remote-controlled flying objects, thus protecting privacy and insuring physical security. Detecting the real-time directional measurement of the radio emissions used for controlling drones, the ADDS system warns the user when drones are in the area and can send automatic alerts. The system's detection range of up to several miles is better than the usable distance from the drone operator to the drone, and depends on the transmitter power of the drone system. The ADDS detection system can be used virtually anywhere: typical scenarios are the protection of residential areas, government and corporate buildings and sensitive commercial or industrial areas such nuclear plants.
The ADDS system is available in various configurations and consists of an Aaronia IsoLOG 3D antenna, a real-time Spectrum Analyzer (XFR V5PRO or RF Command Center) and a special RTSA Suite software plug-in. These all combine to make a 24/7 monitoring and recording system with continuous data-streaming of up to 4TB/day. The drone detection software's intuitive layout combined with powerful tracking, trigger, and display options help in quickly identifying and tracking RF emissions from drones/UAV´s or other RF sources up to 20GHz. Each sector-antenna is displayed in real-time, indicating the exact direction the drone's flight path. Customizable software alarms or pop-ups can quickly alert the ADDS operator/user.
The ADDS system can be configured as a single-side or a multiple-side solution to suit the characteristics of the terrain to be monitored. It is supplied with specialized Drone Detection Software and covers a frequency range from 9 kHz up to a maximum of 20 GHz. The system successfully operates at night or in fog and other bad weather conditions, and will even detect "disguised" drones flying between buildings, or among shrubs and trees. The ADDS system allows for continuous monitoring and recording with high tracking accuracy. A portable version is also available, operational within minutes, with 360 degree coverage. The system can also be used to track the location or movement of drone operators.
Drones are rapidly becoming more than just an annoyance, and are perceived as a potential destructive force. The rapid proliferation of micro/mini UAVs is a growing potential threat to national and commercial security. Easy to make, cheap to buy, simple to fly, and hard to detect, commercially-available drones are one of the fastest evolving technological threats to military and civilian interests. A commercial drone reportedly alarmed the Secret Service in March 2015 when the aircraft flew too close to a golfing President Obama in Florida. And a man was detained in May 2015 for flying a drone near the White House. In Japan, a man landed a small drone on the rooftop of the Prime Minister 's office. This means that drone detection is rapidly becoming an essential security issue and not a luxury.
AAll of the ADDS configurations are available now from Saelig Company, Inc. For detailed specifications, free technical assistance, or additional information, please contact Saelig at 1-888-7SAELIG, via email: email@example.com, or visit www.saelig.com.
