Drone detection radar is an integral part of any drone detection system that can be used to detect and counter potentially harmful UAVs within your airspace.
We recommend multiple providers of exceptional drone detection radar systems for our clients: Spotter RF and OWL (Observation Without Limits).
Spotter Global was founded in 2008 to develop and manufacture Compact Surveillance Radar to protect troops deployed around the world from harm. In 2013 we saw the need for an innovative and user-friendly commercial product to protect critical infrastructure.
Spotter Global offers the broadest selection of Compact Surveillance Radar on the market today. Our products act as a complete security solution or can seamlessly integrate into any existing security solution.
Our proprietary drone detection software integrates seamlessly with Spotter RF and other products to bring you a layered solution.contact aerial armor
OWL or - Observation Without Limits - is one of the premier companies to begin manufacturing drone detection radar systems. GroundAware is their event-based, layered approach for perimeter security in which intruders can be detected in real-time.
OWL’s 3D drone detection radar systems provide detection, tracking, and classification capabilities to monitor and respond to drone threats at significant ranges (3 miles for Class 1, up to 9 miles for larger drones).
OWL sensors can be used solely for drone threat situational awareness or as the 3D surveillance foundation of fully integrated counter-drone solutions.
With Aerial Armor that includes RF sensors, the DJI AeroScope, thermal imaging systems, electronic and kinetic counter-measures, and associated command-and-control drone detection software.
The GA9000 series of drone radar systems is one of OWL’s most effective radar systems. This technology can detect, track, classify and respond to security threats posed by class 1 and 2 drones, as well as other aircraft in low-altitude airspace along with humans, animals, and vehicles on the ground.
The GA9000 series systems offer a range of up to 15km(~9 miles) and a 360-degree field of view.

The GA3360 brings mid-range 3D radar capabilities that enable simultaneous detection, tracking, classification, and response to threats on the ground and in low-altitude airspace.
With the 3360, you get a 360-degree field of view and hemispheric coverage of critical sites with up to 100 degrees of vertical elevation, all from a single sensor.
For those who need a mobile solution instead of a fixed installation, OWL offers a mobile version of GroundAware that can be easily transported to any location and deployed within minutes.
This unit is typically multiple GroundAware 3D radar systems affixed to a multi-stage telescoping mast that can be easily towed and deployed. Many use cases also involve a drone detection camera and a counter-drone solution affixed to the same tower.

Learn all about how drone detection systems work. In this article, we'll cover the most common types of drone detection technologies to see if they might be a viable solution for you and your organization.
With rapid changes coming to drones and UAVs all over the world, you may be wondering how the FAA plans to enforce Remote ID and what exactly it is. Learn all about Remote ID in this post and contact Aerial Armor today!
The most common question we receive is in regards to the range of our DJI AeroScope drone detecting equipment. Learn all about that topic and the factors that determine the range of AeroScope sensors in this post!

There are multiple ways to detect a drone and these include (but not limited to) RF analysis, radar, and visual tracking through thermal and daylight cameras.
But, to detect all types of drones, you need a layered solution. Aerial Armor specializes in layering multiple detection solutions to give our clients the best results based on their needs and budget.
Typically, Air Traffic Control towers will not be able to see your drone on radar.
Specially tuned radar systems can detect drones, but that is generally different from the radar systems used at airports.
Drones can be detected by radar, but they are often hard to distinguish from birds and other similarly sized objects that might be in the sky. We recommend layering radar with a thermal camera for visual confirmation.
Aerial Armor’s software will automatically slew the camera to the area of activity (identified by the radar) for visual confirmation. This greatly improves the accuracy of detection and reduces false signals.
Most drones are detectable due to the fact that they use RF signals to communicate with their controller. These RF frequencies can be monitored by RF sensors like the DJI AeroScope.
When paired with our drone detection radar, thermal cameras, drone detection software, and mobile drone detection solutions, your security team can effectively detect nearly every drone in your airspace and get notified within seconds of detection.
The best anti drone system is a layered solution that combines multiple sensors, radar, detection cameras, software, and a jamming solution that can successfully immobilize any drone or UAS threat.
To determine the best anti drone system for your facility, contact the experts at Aerial Armor today!
With our counter-drone solutions, your security team can successfully jam any drone signal that is detected and deter the unwanted UAV from your airspace (so long as your team qualifies). Our partnered technologies can also land and mitigate the threat as soon as the signal has been jammed.
A fully functional drone detection radar system will cost around $300,000 on average. This price varies on the size of the facility being monitored, how available necessary resources are and the full scope of the drone detection system. Most airports will pay between $100,000 and $500,000 for an integrated drone detection radar system.
