During live demonstrations, the company Belgian Advanced Technology Systems (BATS) presented its 3D radar system for counter-drone applications. Around 70 guests saw how the system detected and followed about 5 drones flying over the DronePort campus. What is unique about the system is that it can detect not only the location (x and y coordinates) of a hostile device, but also the height (z coordinate).
On 14th August 2019, Belgian Advanced Technology Systems SA (BATS) performed a live demonstration of its highly performant anti-drone system “Drone Guard” at Droneport facility in Sint-Truiden. Among the attendees were representatives of NATO, Belgian Defense, Belgian Police, Belgian Customs, Belgian Public Security and Belgian Prison Authorities.
The system, which is composed of a 3D short-range air defense radar, an RF-detector and direction finder, high-end electro-optics, a jammer and command & control software, showed its outstanding, fully integrated and automated performance against drones of various sizes.
