November 2018 - Over the past years, commercial micro and mini UAVs, known as 'drones',
have become an almost common sight. With the technology becoming ever more affordable,
a greater number of people uses these UAVs for different purposes – especially in amateur
photography, drones have come to deliver spectacular results.
Yet, with the emergence of this trend, potential dangers have surfaced as well. Government
facilities, airports, power plants – these are just a few examples of critical infrastructure
that relies heavily on secured airspace. In the past, UAVs have repeatedly penetrated
no-fly zones without authorization. Furthermore, drones are becoming more and more capable
of transporting potentially harmful payload.
Since its introduction to the market in 2015, the range of Aaronia's AARTOS Drone
Detection System has seen consistent and significant upgrading. Next to the stationary
versions, Aaronia has expanded its mobile array with two new additions in 2018.
The AARTOS DDS Container is a self-sustaining, remote-controllable system. The solid
5ft container in corrugated steel sheet metal (2200 x 1600 x 2445 mm) is an off-grid
solution, powered by solar energy and an additional diesel generator, making it independent
for up to three months in perfect conditions. It offers 24/7 360° RF drone detection
and video object classifying through latest state-of-the-art analysis, and alarms can
be immediately forwarded via push email or text message. The system is remote-controllable
and allows access to live and historic video and drone detection feed via mobile network
or satellite connection. If needed, a direct connection to the Security Guard Control
Center adds security.
Next to the DDS Container, Aaronia now offers another solution for permanent deployment
in the field, the Shelter. As the all-round carefree package for any drone detection
operator, the Shelter combines all the advantages of the AARTOS DDS family with extreme
sturdiness. Ready for action within 10-15 minutes, yet reliant on 2/2 external power
supply, the system offers highly precise and reliable drone detection in even the most
adverse weather conditions. At the basis of the Shelter is the AARTOS Command Center,
acting as the master PC and providing everything that is necessary, including the RTSA
Suite Pro software solution. Weighing less than 1000 kg, the Shelter's standard ISO dimensions
(2900 x 1825 x 2050 mm) render it fit for transportation, be it with a Unimog or any
suitable flat-bed pickup. Like the Container, the Shelter is compatible with the entire
AARTOS DDS range, and can also be fitted with an A/C module.
Highly scalable and easy to operate, both the Container and the Shelter can be set
up and deployed in little time (10-15 minutes), making them ideal for surveillance and
drone detection at events (concerts, parades, sport events etc.), industrial plants,
borders, airports, correctional facilities and military camps. As tailor-made solutions,
individual components and features can be specifically fitted to customers' needs.
Like all Aaronia products, the AARTOS DDS Container and Shelter adhere to the high
quality standards associated with the label Made in Germany.
