The acoustics-based Discovair G2 fills a vital gap in proximity drone detection. Strict line-of-sight to UAS targets is not needed for positive tracking. The drone can operate in urban canyons, cluttered areas, behind obstructions and in darkness or fog, out of range for radars and optics, but still within the ‘earshot’ of the Discovair G2 acoustic sensor.
Discovair G2 utilizes patented microphone arrays. With 128 interconnected microphone elements, the Discovair sensor units are able to establish azimuth and elevation to the target in real-time using advanced digital signal processing. The acoustic sensors form a completely modular and scalable solution. Discovair G2 can be used for any purpose, from small mobile ground units to large perimeters and even borders.
Discovair G2 can operate independently, or in conjunction with other detection and mitigation technologies.
Discovair G2 is intended for 24/7 operations with little user intervention. When a detection is made, the operator will receive both audio and visual warnings. During a detection event, the Discovair graphical user interface (GUI) will display a map or satellite image of the protected zone. Any intruding drones will be shown in their respective sectors.
