DJI's AeroScope Drone Detection Equipment

The DJI AeroScope

With a massive rise in the popularity of drones, the skies have become an increasingly dangerous place. Drone-related incidents are at an all-time high and many security officials are scrambling to figure out ways to protect their organizations and jurisdictions. 

Many radar systems found at airports and other enterprise facilities are not able to accurately detect drones due to their smaller size. That’s why we are an authorized dealer of the DJI AeroScope series of drone detection equipment. 

DJI's AeroScope is able to quickly identify the vast majority of popular drones on the market today by monitoring and analyzing their electronic signals to gain critical information, enabling you to detect and mitigate threats within your airspace.

The most popular AeroScope models include the G-8, G-16, and the mobile variant.

DJI's AeroScope Mobile Kit

Detect Drones on the Go

AeroScope's Mobile Unit is perfect for rapid deployment. This unit detects UAVs and drones flying within a particular surveillance area around 3 miles from the unit. At just under 20 lbs, it is perfect for tracking down drones and their pilots who have violated your airspace but flown outside the range of your stationary antennas. 

Using DJI’s built-in CrystalSky, you can use it to quickly identify any drone flights within the area. This system provides real-time GPS coordinates of drones flying within range, the units homepoint location, and, most importantly, the pilot location.

No internet is required for the DJI portable AeroScope unit and it has a battery life of around 4 hours.

Stationary AeroScope Sensors

The following units are DJI’s top-of-the-line drone detecting systems. Aerial Armor's exact recommendations will depend on the needs of your organization. Typically, a layered solution is suggested to detect drone makes and models of all types.

dji aeroscope g-8 drone detection radar

AeroScope G-8 Antenna

The DJI AeroScope G-8 is a directional antenna that provides 8 dBi gain and 90 degrees of signal coverage. Any installation requires four G-8 antennas to cover the full 360 degrees.

The G-8 is one of the most popular DJI units we install for clients and can detect drones between 12-20 miles away.

This drone detection antenna operates at 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz and is the ideal unit to detect drones for most infrastructure.

Drone operators consent to the collection of information via DJI Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.
Coverage range, on average, is 12-20 miles (depending on environmental factors).
dji aeroscope g-16 drone detection antenna

AeroScope G-16

The AeroScope G-16 directional antenna provides 16 dBi gain and 22.5-degree coverage.

Due to the narrow beamwidth of the AeroScope G-16 antenna, a set of G-16 antennas only has 90-degree coverage.

In order to achieve 360 degrees of coverage, four AeroScope stationary units and four sets of G-16 antennas are required. 

This is one of the most advanced DJI drone detection RF systems that is available, producing the largest range of UAV detection. This unit will help secure any enterprise facility.

dji aeroscope g-16 antenna
The G-16 AeroScope antenna can reliably detect drones between 20-30 miles.

Under exceptional environmental conditions, we've seen detections up to 100 miles.

AeroScope Stationary Unit

DJI aeroscope stationary unit

Stationary Unit

The AeroScope Stationary unit is designed for continuous detection within large airspaces. Under ideal weather conditions and favorable terrains, the AeroScope can detect drones up to 30 miles away.

However, in exceptional conditions, we have seen detections of up to 100 miles away. The detection range is largely determined by the type of antennas installed.

This unit comes with built-in surge protection modules but does not include a lightning induction system and should be installed within the protected region of another lightning induction system.

Only security professionals, government agents, and law enforcement agencies are legally allowed to purchase the DJI AeroScope. 

As an authorized dealer, Aerial Armor can answer any question you might have and determine the risk levels of your airspace. Contact us today!

Can you track a drone operator?

plus sign

Yes. The DJI AeroScope is capable of identifying the drones location, it's takeoff location (or Homepoint), and the location of the operator.

How does DJI AeroScope work?

plus sign

The DJI AeroScope intercepts RF signals being transmitted between the drone and it's controller. When DJI users setup their account, they consent to making their drone registration and flight details available to security personnel. The AeroScope picks up drones within range and Aerial Armor's detection software displays critical flight information to security personnel.
