Correctional facilities face a new challenge to prevent contraband such as cell phones, drugs or guns into unattended sections of prison yards by drones. The consequences of such contraband range from unruly prisoners to orders for hits on prison staff.
AeroDefense’s counter-UAS solution, AirWarden™ detects RF-based drones as they enter the perimeter of a detection zone. The system detects, locates, tracks and alerts of both the pilot/controller and the drone location within the detection zone which can be 1-5 kilometers from a sensor. Large properties can be configured with networked sensors to establish extensive perimeters.
The solution is passive so no staff or special training is required.
