According to the FAA’s recent report on near misses with pilots from November 2014 through January 2016, the close calls are on the rise to the tune of about 250% year over year.
Helicopters and planes landing are at greatest risk from drone incidents, whether malicious or foolhardy.
Most current drone security systems deal with only a portion of the entire process of detecting and preventing drone flight. Some systems only alert when a drone is in the protected space, requiring staff to take action. The legality of some of the prevention systems is in question because of the jamming techniques used. Simply shooting down errant drones risks injury to people and property on the ground.
Drone Go Home’s solution detects drones attempting to enter a protected airspace and prevents them from flying in the zone.
The system detects drones in the area via RF and uses multiple techniques to cause the drone to return to its launch location or trigger its failsafe technique, disabling pilot control of the drone. All techniques operate within existing FCC guidelines and should present no legal challenges.
The solution establishes a passive perimeter security zone so no staff or special training is required.
