A RADAR-BASED SYSTEM FOR THE DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION OF UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES
The Black Knight UAV detection radar provides protection against the hostile or unauthorized use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for both civil protection and military protection. It is a radar-based system that is able to detect and locate both fixed wing and rotorcraft UAVs of Class I (mini or small) and larger. It can either be installed in a fixed location to provide permanent or semi-permanent protection or it can be mounted on a trailer for quick to set up mobile use. Black Knight, developed by IDS, a high tech integrated solutions and services company, provides full 360° coverage, day or night, as well as in adverse weather conditions.
The Black Knight radar system can also incorporate an optional EO/IR turret and a multiband jammer. These additions, which are fully integrated as part of the system, provide enhancements to the tracking and identification capabilities of the system as well as a countermeasure option for full safety and protection.
Black Knight can help to provide protection and security in a number of environments, both civil and military. It can be used to detect and locate the unauthorized or unsafe use of UAVs in controlled airspace or potentially dangerous situations and can also provide defense against hostile uses of UAVs.
