Cotem­po­rary times find drones as fa­mil­iar fly­ing ob­jects and as with any other tech­nol­ogy, drones are used and mis­used. They could be threats to mil­i­tary es­tab­lish­ments and strate­gic civil­ian lo­ca­tions. Drones are eas­ily launched by ad­ver­saries for spy­ing and caus­ing dam­age to these es­tab­lish­ments. Coun­ter­ing such drones is es­sen­tial for se­cu­rity agen­cies. BEL has devel­oped an in­dige­nous ‘Drone Guard’ so­lu­tion to sup­port these agen­cies.

“BEL’s Drone Guard Sys­tem (DGS) has been con­fig­ured to de­tect, track and neu­tralise the in­trud­ing drones. The sys­tem utilises RF spec­trum to de­tect the drone and EO-IR sen­sor to track the drone con­tin­u­ously. The neu­traliser is ini­ti­ated to scan and iden­tify the tar­get’s com­mu­ni­ca­tion fre­quen­cies and gen­er­ate RF jam­ming sig­nal to neu­tralise the tar­get and is ca­pa­ble of bring­ing down the drone by ham­per­ing its com­mu­ni­ca­tion link as well as blind­ing its GPS source. The sys­tem can be op­er­ated in semi-au­to­matic/man­ual mode through user friendly GUIs. This por­ta­ble and ag­ile sys­tem can also be con­fig­ured to be ve­hi­cle mounted as per the user’s re­quire­ment.”
