Are you waking up to the growing threat that drones pose to your privacy, safety and security? Recent years have seen a massive advance in drone endurance, range and payload capacity whilst the price has also plummeted, leading to a proliferation of drones expected to reach 22 million by 2020.

To combat these emerging drone threats Martek CUAS have developed the M.A.D.S™ Martek Anti-Drone System. M.A.D.S™ detects and identifies commercial drones within a 5+km range, providing GPS positioning of both drone and pilot together with the drone’s speed and heading. Configurable and escalating stage alarms in real time allow the threat level to be assessed in good time to decide on appropriate defence actions.

Once a real drone threat has been established, the system enables a 500m+ electronic ‘exclusion zone’ to be created. Should the drone approach this exclusion zone, its control/video signal will be blocked, initiating its fail-safe mode forcing it to land or return to its operator.
