Xpeller is the great project that Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security has presented this week taking advantage of the CES 2017 celebration in Las Vegas (United States). This new project is nothing more than the development of a new mobile security system capable of interfering with the frequencies used by drones. In addition to this, according to Airbus, the system is capable of detect aircraft intrusions in critical areas and use a series of electronic countermeasures with which to minimize the risks caused by this type of action.
As he commented Thomas Müller, current CEO of Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security:
Together with our partners, we have created an extremely effective modular anti-drone system. Due to its versatility, it is reliable to offer maximum protection under a variety of circumstances.
Xpeller is the name of the latest major drone-related project developed by Airbus.
As has been commented on at the stand that Airbus had set up at CES by its managers, Xpeller is a system capable of protecting sensitive areas against illicit intrusion by small drones. This system would be able to protect from this type of incursions, for example, areas made up of an individual building, even airports and large events. The name chosen for this system has not been left to chance since precisely Xpeller comes to mean something like eject.
As a final detail, let me just tell you that, for now, Airbus has already confirmed that they have managed to test the Xpeller project with quite a high degree of success, a system made up of radar and optical sensors that makes use of a big-data system to merge and analyze all kinds of technological signal interferences, in various presentations made in Germany, France and Switzerland.
