Advanced Drone Detection System Analyzed (Gryphon Profile)

Author: Brian Karas, Published on May 30, 2017

Drones are becoming a common topic in the security industry. While startups like Aptonomy and Nightingale are in the early stages of rolling out drones for security, rogue drones are an immediate threat to many organizations. Detecting, and responding, to rogue drones is another emerging market in the security industry.

Gryphon Sensors has developed a drone detection system they claim can identify drones at a range of up to 10km, using technology originally developed for the US Department of Defense.. IPVM spoke with Gryphon Sensors about their drone detection system, and their recommendations for drone mitigation. Details are in this report.
