optical dRONES detection Solutions
SkyPatriot is a family of industry-leading early warning optical drone detection systems. They use powerful AI video analytic software to rapidly and reliably detect, track, and classify multiple drones located kilometres away, in real-time. The SkyPatriot family includes:
SkyPatriot Sector entry-level optical system
SkyPatriot InSight supplements these systems by introducing a powerful AI-derived classification module
SkyPatriot systems are now the #1 optical scanning drone detection scheme having gained widespread success in many proven drone defence deployments around the world
SkyPatriot Sector is our entry-level optical drone detection system. It incorporates a high-resolution detection camera operating in combination with a 360° PTZ camera. The detection camera continuously scans for objects within a preset field of view while the PTZ camera zooms-in on candidate targets for closer image analysis and tracking.
The system will detect and track multiple drones simultaneously, ignoring non-threats such as birds, and log all drone activity for later evaluation. The Sector system is modular and its detection field of view customisable, allowing it to be easily upgraded to cover multiple sectors, and can be integrated with our SkyPatriot InSight drone classifier.
SkyPatriot Hunter enhances Rinicom's successful optical drone detection system by enabling integration with radar or RF tracking systems.
The Hunter system integrates high resolution detection cameras with a 360° PTZ camera, as similar to the SkyPatriot Sector, but with all cameras mounted on a rotating 360° pan/tilt head.
An external radar or RF detector feeds coordinate data to the Hunter system, helping to direct the detection camera's field of view toward the sector of interest.
The PTZ camera is used to zoom-in on the selected target for image pattern analysis and tracking. The SkyPatriot Hunter system also includes the SkyPatriot InSight drone classification module as standard.
180° sector / 360° sector
SkyPatriot Sector180 incorporates the same fundamental elements as the base Sector system; a high resolution detection camera working in combination with a PTZ tracking camera. However, for the Sector180, rather than a single detection camera covering a single sector, an array of detection cameras are tightly integrated to provide full 180° coverage.
Thus, for the 180° implementation six detection cameras operate in combination with a PTZ tracking camera. In a similar way the Sector360 version integrates twelve detection cameras, but with two tracking cameras. Both systems also includes the InSight drone classifier module as standard.
AI drone classification module
SkyPatriot InSight is a powerful AI drone classification module.
It functions in combination with an optical drone detection system; taking captured images as its input and analysing them to classify the drone type (eg DJI Phantom 4 or Parrot Anafi).
The module draws on an extensive database of known UAV/drone device signatures derived from its core artificial intelligence vision algorithms.
InSight can be connected to SkyPatriot optical drone detection systems or third-party optical detection systems thereby enabling a wide user base to leverage the accumulated knowledge gathered from its AI-evolved database development.
