Civilian drones pose a severe threat to airports and different companies which is why Kaspersky has launched a new solution designed to assist organizations and property house owners protect themselves from unauthorized trespassing by drones.

While the worldwide drone market was estimated to be price £11bn in 2018, the mass adoption of this revolutionary expertise could possibly be affected by the damaging connotations which might be usually related to drones. A latest research within the UK discovered that solely 31 % of respondents have a optimistic angle in direction of drones.

This notion is basically pushed by circumstances of improper or unlawful use of unmanned plane. One notable instance occurred earlier this yr when London’s Gatwick Airport was closed because of drones and three flights needed to be diverted.

Kaspersky Antidrone

To assist make using unmanned plane techniques safer and to extend operator duty, Kaspersky has developed its personal antidrone solution.

Kaspersky Antidrone software program employs a number of {hardware} modules supplied by its companions to differentiate drones from different objects within the sky. The major detection module searchers for drones utilizing video cameras alongside radar, LIDAR and audio sensors. It can be price noting that Kaspersky is the primary firm to make use of a laser scanner to find out the place of a drone in a industrial solution.

When the software program detects a shifting object within the sky, its coordinates are transmitted to a devoted server which then sends this info onto a particular unit. This unit then rotates in direction of the thing, tracks it after which the digicam zooms in on it. 

A neural community, that has been skilled to establish drones amongst different shifting objects, concurrently analyzes the thing within the video. If it distinguishes that the thing is a drone, the server sends a command to the devoted module to jam the communications between the system and its controller. This causes the drone to both fly again to the place it was launched from or land within the location the place it misplaced sign with the controller, leading to zero harm to the drone itself.

Project proprietor of Kaspersky Antidrone, Vladimir Turov supplied additional perception on the corporate’s new antidrone solution, saying:

“Many members of Kaspersky Antidrone team, myself included, have long been drone pilots. Unmanned aircraft can sometimes pose real danger. For instance, I’ve witnessed some risky situations during public events. It clearly causes some doubt around the use of the technology. Unfortunately, as a drone pilot, you often don’t know which locations are prohibited, so when your drone is unexpectedly crushed or physically attacked with hostile protection measures, it is very frustrating. That’s why, during the development of our product, we took the interests of drone enthusiasts as well as safety requirements and concerns into account. This helped us develop a way to ensure drones do not enter prohibited areas, without damaging them.”
