Unmanned aerial systems (UASs), commonly known as drones, are becoming larger parts of the battlefield, requiring reliable defensive strategies. To that end, the RAFAEL Drone Dome drone-detection system from RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. (an Israeli government-owned corporation) has integrated the RFeye Ecosystem from CRFS into the Drone Dome system for surveillance and tracking of battlefield drones.
The RFeye Ecosystem provides stable RF signal processing to the Drone Dome counter-drone system even at extreme temperature environments such as deserts (see image above). Hostile autonomous drones typically provide enemy forces with surveillance and targeting data; some autonomous drones can carry weapons. The CRFS RFeye receiver equips the Drone Dome system with advanced detection, geolocation, and data-filtering/streaming capabilities through simple-to-integrate open advance passenger information (API) files.
Rafi Amir, Business Development Lead for RAFAEL, said, “We are delighted with the capability enhancement we have been able to offer our clients on the basis of this integration project. CRFS is a recognized leader in their domain of RF-based detection and geolocation of airborne targets, so all Drone Dome customers and partners can benefit from our enhanced capabilities in this important domain.”
