Drone detection system for oil refineries

Coptrz has announced the launch of a complete turnkey drone detection solution, designed to provide protection from the threat of drones.

Launched in partnership with DJI and its AeroScope detection systems, the system allows an operator to track telemetry data from drones in surrounding airspace of up to 40km (25 miles). In effect, it’s a drone license plate detection system that provides security teams with the data required to be able to quickly and effectively protect against drone intrusion.

By intercepting the current communications link between a DJI drone and its remote controller, AeroScope is able to broadcast real-time identification information including UAV serial code, make and model, UAV position, speed, latitude and ground controller location. This allows the operator to take mitigation action against the drone threat and at the same time despatch security teams to apprehend the pilot.

This launch has been anticipated for some time after increased security concerns regarding the use of drones high-security areas. DJI announced plans to develop AeroScope in October and has since chosen Coptrz as its European partner for the development, installation and maintenance of the product going forward.
