#1 Solution for Optical Drone Detection

SkyPatriot is the industry-leading early warning optical drone detection system. It uses powerful AI video analytic software to rapidly and reliably detect, track, and classify multiple drones located kilometres away, in real-time.

The SkyPatriot system [patent pending] consists of up to four Detection Modules, each providing 90° coverage, and a powerful 360° PTZ camera that zooms in on the detected object to better analyse its image signature. This modular design allows SkyPatriot to be deployed in many diverse operational scenarios, each being tailored to a customer's requirements.

SkyPatriot is now the #1 optical scanning drone detection system having gained widespread success in many proven drone defence deployments around the world with major customers including L3Harris, ST Electronics, Mistral, and Robin Radar Systems.

"To cover all eventualities [re drone detection] there needs to be a suite of sensors and, ultimately, they need to be optically identified."

Captain Tim Pottage (British Airline Pilots' Association), House of Commons Science and Technology Committee's report on 'Commercial and Recreational drone use in the UK'

Proprietary AI-powered Software

SkyPatriot uses powerful AI video analytic algorithms to accurately distinguish between drones and other objects such as birds, clouds, and even tree branches moving in the wind. This classification process for non-drone objects takes less than a second; substantially reducing false alarms.

SkyPatriot detection map example

SkyPatriot's smart AI not only detects and tracks drones, it also applies Machine Learning to the image recognition process so that the specific type/make/model of drone can be identified. This gives SkyPatriot operators another layer of information for evidence-based decision making.

Drone Defence Applications

SkyPatriot is designed to alert users when a drone has entered into the monitored airspace. The system has many commercial and defence applications, for example airports, prisons, and critical infrastructure assets such as power plants and transportation hubs.

The SkyPatriot system is scalable for larger drone protection sites. Multiple entities of SkyPatriot can be combined to create a unified detection system that integrates the different areas of coverage.
