Detection and defence systems

EAS supports the development of drone detection and defence systems

Objectives of the project: The objective of the project „Development of drone detection and defence systems” is to improve the characteristics of Rantelon’s drone detection and defence equipment, to add new functionalities and the development of a new generation device that integrates drone detection and defence into a single device. Additionally, visual detection device of Marduk Technologies is integrated to the system.

Description of the project and expected outputs: Artificial intelligent drone detection and defence technology will be developed that enables to control risks associated with explosive development of drones.

During the project, parameters of autonomous drone detection sensors (accuracy of signal classification and direction finding, drone motion modelling etc.) as well as interoperability of sensor systems (cooperative positioning, multi-sensor based drone motion positioning etc.) will be improved.

Capacity of drone defence equipment will be extended to cover all frequency bands used by drones, introducing smart anti-drone principles and signals that reduce interference to other radio-communication networks and devices. One of the most important results of the project is the integration of drone detection and defence.

The project brings together Estonia’s leading anti-drone companies Rantelon and Marduk Technologies, and Sirius Microwave specialized in radio communication.

Partners’ anti-drone capabilities based on radio communication and optics will be taken to a higher level and combined into complex solution to provide a comprehensive solution and increase sales potential. The total cost of the project is 2 211 455,00 euros, of which the European Regional Development Fund will cover up to 1 617 768,80 euros.

IoT infrastructures, applications and service

ELIKO Competence Centre Project

Sirius Microwave participates in Eliko Competence Centre Project (EU48693) in subtopic of IoT infrastructures, applications and services. More specifically we are a core partner for implementing and testing wideband, low energy wireless sensing and communication solutions for IoT systems. Eliko launched an Internet of Things (IoT) driven industrial R&D program in 2015. The aim is to help companies develop competitive products through active collaboration with universities. This is to ensure that companies invest in future-proof technologies in the IoT. The Competence Centre Project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund with 6 996 700 euros. Eliko competence project (EU48693) runs between 01.07.2015-30.06.2022.
