MILITARY &CIVILIAN APPCLICATIONS
With limited regulations, drone hobbyists have created safety issues for private aircraft, especially helicopters flying lifesaving and firefighting missions at low altitudes. With numerous incidents of drones straying into commercial airspace documented to date, the need for a comprehensive solution to this threat has never been more evident.
Drones pose a significant danger not only to airport security, but also to aircraft during take-off and landing. Flying at lower altitudes, helicopters are particularly vulnerable to drones and the number of collisions has escalated alarmingly since 2015.
