Affordable, easy to obtain drones can be used to attack a political or famous figure, or perform surveillance. Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro was the target of a purported assassination attempt using drones.
TESTED AND TRUSTED BY THE TOP TIER
D-Fend Solutions’ EnforceAir, our flagship counter-unmanned aerial system (c-UAs) offering, has been deployed hundreds of times worldwide across four continents, including at high-level U.S. government agencies – including military, federal law enforcement and homeland security departments. EnforceAir has also been successfully tested and deployed by law enforcement groups. These groups, who are entrusted with public safety, trust D-Fend Solutions to help them keep important people and events safe.
IDENTIFYING THE REAL THREAT
When it comes to detection, radars often have trouble differentiating between small drones and other flying objects, and they are complicated to operate. Optic solutions generate false alarms and the problem with many acoustic solutions is that drones are becoming increasingly quiet.
Jamming-based solutions, or hybrid solutions featuring jammers for mitigation, emit large amounts of energy to block drones’ controller signals and render them largely unable to function properly. This may not be the optimal solution in a VIP protection environment. Such measures can affect other radio communications, which could hamper security personnel’s ability to communicate.
Many special forces and law enforcement agencies protecting politicians and other high-profile people utilize drones to monitor events and the surroundings, but most conventional solutions are unable to distinguish between “friend and foe.”
EnforceAir, D-Fend Solutions’ flagship solution, features proven and future-proof technology that detects unauthorized or rogue drones, identifies them and then automatically takes control over the drones and lands them in a safe, designated area. Authorized drones serving to help monitor situations and protect the VIP remain fully operational and unaffected.
An alert zone can be set on the outer perimeter of where the VIP is located, with multiple protection zones blanketing the surrounding areas.
VIPs ON THE MOVE
EnforceAir provides the ultimate in operational agility and flexibility, as its core elements can be easily transferred, mounted and configured within minutes, enabling law enforcement and first responder personnel to go anywhere at any time. This includes a law enforcement vehicle installation and a ground- or high-level deployment. EnforceAir is relatively light-weight and can even be carried by personnel in the field.
Its intuitive graphical user interface and rugged tablet are intuitive and easy to use, and do not require a technical background.
