RF-based system protects NATO summit against drones
14 November 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

As the potential threats presented by aerial drones have increased, the market for systems that can detect and defeat them has grown. One such solution is an RF-based system made by Aaronia, which was chosen by the Belgium police to protect the 2018 NATO summit.

The AARTOS system can detect, track, identify and defeat a drone in approximately 3 seconds at a range of up to 15 km. It detects even multiband drones using RF detection in real-time before using an RF jammer to defeat the drone. A fully integrated, long-range auto target tracking camera backs up the RF detection and is used to verify the drone type and payload.

Multiple AARTOS systems were used, for example, positioned at the roof of the NATO headquarters and on top of the Triumphal Arch in Brussels’ Jubelpark, the place where the NATO delegation had dinner. This contract with the Belgium Police follows the successful mission deployment of multiple AARTOS systems during the Trump/Kim Summit in June 2018.

Using Aaronia AARTOS Sector Jammer Solutions, the operator can effectively take control of a drone and force a safe landing. The AARTOS system is military grade, designed and proven to operate in harsh environments. It works in all weather, day or night and the disruption is flexible, proportional and operator controlled.

AARTOS systems are in use by various government agencies, the police and military to protect high-value critical national infrastructure and personnel or strategically important sites/events. These include nuclear power stations, borders, political or VIP events, airports and airbases.
