Press Releases

The illegal use of drones has become a pressing security concern across the world as proved by the recent disruptions to major airports caused by drones. Addressing the threat and impact of illegal drone usage, Rinicom and Saher (UK) have jointly developed a specialised training programme designed for security and operations professionals dealing with drone invasions around airports, prisons, and critical infrastructure.

The course has been developed together with industry leading drone and law enforcements experts and covers topics such as the current threat landscape, legal and regulatory powers, counter measures, risk assessment, and strategic response. The course is delivered over 2 days at the customer’s location.

Please contact Rinicom or Saher (UK) for further information.

We would like to say thank you to all our visitors who took the time to visit our stand at the World ATM Conference in Madrid last week. We enjoyed the opportunity to present our combined visual drone detection and situational awareness ATM platform solution.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or requests for further information.

Rinicom and 42 Solutions will have a joined booth (#183) at the World ATM conference March 12-14 in Madrid. We will be demonstrating:

  • Rinicom’s drone sensor technology, SkyPatriot
  • Our joint CUPS development
  • 42 Solutions Merlin ATC Fallback system.

On the CUPS system we will be showing a first prototype, where, for now, the operator will be able to mark detected drones as a threat. On the Merlin display, with normal air traffic, the drone location will be highlighted as a threat.

If you are at the WATMC we would of course love seeing you and be happy to give you a demonstration.

Rinicom is proud to be in a Team who won 2018 NATO Scientific Achievement Award. The award is presented to Dr. Peter-Paul Meiler and the IST-118 Research Task Group for their outstanding contribution to the S&T Organization Cooperative Program of Work (CPoW). Rinicom’s COFDM IP mesh technology is an essential part of the

NATO Research Task Group IST-118 on ‘Service Oriented Architecture Recommendations for Disadvantaged Grids in the Tactical Domain’. In a three-year endeavour, this Task Group identified the best ways to make the Service Oriented Architecture approach applicable within the constraints of the tactical environment. The team developed a Tactical SOA Profile that helps to optimize the future systems architectures and to improve the cooperation within NATO countries.

Rinicom's latest Electro Optical sensor, the Dark Eye 2, during integration testing before the KSK Symposium in Germany in cooperation with BSS Holland. The Dark Eye 2 builds on Dark Eye 1's success with an enhanced day camera performance delivering magnification of X20 at 4K resolution whilst enjoying gyro stabilisation over 2 axis. 

When matched with a suitable 4K screen this delivers class leading surveillance capabilities at extreme ranges. The embedded Thermal Image camera (standard) is not subject to ITAR legislation and is capable of detecting human activity, in all weather day or night, over 1000m distance.

QA Emblem General 2018Rinicom Ltd. has received the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade, for a second time, they also received The Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2013. The project that led to this recognition was the SkyPatriot drone detection system.

As a company that focuses on research and development, Rinicom works closely with Lancaster University, many of the long-term employees of Rinicom are graduates of the University, and in partnership with key companies in order to implement innovative solutions.

Rinicom identified a gap in the market and invested in the development of a powerful optical drone detection system called SkyPatriot.

The SkyPatriot has been created to help combat air traffic disruption and safety hazards caused by the unauthorised use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) such as drones. 

The wide proliferation of commercial UAVs has led to numerous reports of air traffic disruption, smuggling of illicit substances, illegal collection of video footage and disturbance of high-profile mass events. It is a worldwide problem, affecting different sectors of the society, and causing significant financial loss.

The SkyPatriot is capable of detecting, locating and tracking UAVs and then neutralising the threat.
