Why Scout?

The combination of radio frequency and protocol comprehension delivers a unique observation ability to detect, identify and attribute and locate drones within Scout’s deployment radius of approximately 5+km.


Radio frequencies are used to detect and identify drone communication listed in the Scout library. Radio frequencies are one of the largest observation ranges detecting drones before they become a threat.

Protocol comprehension attributes and locates the drones and controller providing the operator with actionable data. Where no location data is available, Scout’s integrated radio direction finder provides enhanced location capability through a unique set of algorithms.

Data is available through Atlas 13, providing real time observation and detection, threat assessment and tracking.
