GCN: Lockheed, Battelle, NEC Work on Drone Defense Tech - top government contractors - best government contracting event

droneCompanies continue to explore new drone defense technologies to address the potential threat from unmanned aircraft systems as they prove hard to detect using existing radar technologies, GCN reported Tuesday.

Mark Pomerleau writes that NEC, Battelle and Lockheed Martin currently have programs that seek to bolster drone defense through capabilities ranging from detection to disruption.

The report said NEC has developed a surveillance system that consists of an ultra-sensitive camera, infrared camera, acoustic sensor and radio detection finder and works to detect drones.

Battelle’s DroneDefender offering for U.S. government customers is an electromagnetic cannon that fires radio waves to disrupt the communications of nearby aircraft.

Lockheed’s Icarus features passive detection sensors that work to detect and counter small UAS.
