System of tracking down illegal drone flyers – Southend Airport

UAVs pose a great risk to the safety of plane passengers, showing up up to four times a week in London aviation area. The new drone-tracking system address this issue and allows one to navigate the location of the operator and spot drones at a longer distance than it was possible before. This provides a solution to the problem of drones approaching airspaces, which used to result in the halting of the airport’s operations. The innovative technology is the product of the two companies’ cooperation: METIS and IPS.
