Presidents and high-level officials require protection when traveling in a convoy, appearing at outdoor public events or within their residences.
In 2018, weaponized drones were used for making an assassination attempt against a VIP. This incident highlights the challenges of defending officials against drone attacks in crowded areas and how easily a drone is able to penetrate security measures. The VIP DOME delivers a portable plug & play system to neutralise unauthorised drones entering a secured perimeter. The system has two modes of operation: detection and jamming, or automatic jamming. The detection and jamming mode scans for drones using an array of Omnidirectional antennas.
Once a threat has been detected by the system, an automated command is transmitted to the jamming unit, blocking all radio communication channels, including GPS signals and video links.
The system detects the drone’s general direction and transmitting a specific beam forcing it to drift away and lose communication with its operator.
