Detects in Seconds

The AirWarden™ system detects Radio Frequencies (RF) in the environment and can detect potential drone and controllers in seconds. Once detected, the signal is analyzed and run through several filters to ensure that it is in fact a drone or controller signal, and to calculate its location.

Detection Channels

The system tracks drones across a broad range of standard channels used for drone communications including 400/900 MHz and 2.4/5.8 GHz.

Software Defined Radio

The system uses Software-Defined Radio (SDR) to control which frequencies and signal characteristics are received and analyzed. This means the frequencies can changed without the need to replace expensive hardware.

Detects both Known and Unidentified Devices

AirWarden™ stores unique drone signal characteristics in a library of known drones that includes the majority of consumer and commercial drones. Any drone or controller not included in the library will be listed as “Unidentified”, but can still be detected and located.

Uses Data from Multiple Sensors to Locate

The system uses the differences in signal received by each sensor to calculate the location of the drone or controller.

Real-time Tracking and Replay

AirWarden™ displays the location of each device in the Command Console in real time. Detection events can also be replayed to assist with incident analysis.
