WATCHDOG – RF detection

Product features

Networked UAS RF detection alarm

Watchdog is a networked single-zone UAS RF detector capable of providing type and heading information to the user about UAS control signals and video feeds. Watchdog is especially suited for a fixed installation like perimeter protection around a prison, a military camp site or on a vehicle. Multiple Watchdogs can be deployed on a network and mounted in masts, on walls or car chassis. The user interface is easy to use and can run on a PC in the control room or a laptop in a vehicle.

Example of use for rapid protection of a remote camp site. A remote military camp site is being set up and a number of Watchdogs are being distributed along the 2 km fence interconnected with Ethernet in a secure local area network (LAN). A hostile reconnaissance UAV is being launched from the edge of a forest 500 meters away. Even before take-o , the drone control signals are picked up by the Watchdog-based network, the alarm goes o in the central command with geolocation of the pilot and an armored vehicle is immediately sent to the forest for pursuit of the pilot.
