Indra presents an application capable of detecting and controlling drones


In case you do not know it, tell you that Indra is one of the Spanish multinationals related to the world of software development and the most important consultancy at European level. With this in mind, it is not difficult to understand that they have decided to enter the world of drones by proposing certain solutions, in this case related to the world of security.

Today I would like to talk to you about the ARMS intelligent system, Anti RPAS Multisensor System, developed by Indra engineers, a platform that is prepared to detect any type of drone remotely through a radar with a range of several kilometers away. Once the drone has been detected, the platform changes state and activates a frequency inhibitor of different bands canceling the signal of the geolocation equipment of the drone as well as its communication link with the controller.

Indra tests software capable of locating and taking control of a drone.

Undoubtedly, it must be recognized that Indra is betting heavily on the drone and communications sector, a very innovative technology that is posing serious problems worldwide, especially, as we have already seen on occasion, when you are unmanned aircraft enter restricted airspacesEither to cause damage or directly due to the misinformation of the controller, an action that can cause considerable damage and even millionaire losses for the actors in these airspaces.

At the moment, as has been confirmed, this system is still in the development phase since the Spanish multinational is still carrying out tests to achieve maximum precision when it comes to the platform to detect, classify and track any type of unmanned aircraft combining the use of thermal imaging and radio listening. A second evolution will allow the ARMS system take control of the drone and direct it to a safe area.
