The Limburg technology company Senhive has developed a new SEN-AIR ecosystem, a modular platform for automatic drone detection. The system can identify and locate drones and operators in the most challenging environments. Some test setups have already been installed in Belgium and Madrid, which have already detected around 200 drones in total. At DronePort in Sint-Truiden today, around 30 business partners from various sectors demonstrated the RF system, which is part of the detection ecosystem that works on the basis of radio signals.
 
Senhive works together with various partners to roll out their SEN-AIR system. This allows them to offer a combination of RF, RADAR and acoustic detection technologies within their ecosystem. The proposed RF system can detect drones at different kilometers.
 
Because the technology is based on detecting the communication signals between the drone and the operator, the drone can already be detected even before takeoff. The system will not only locate and keep track of the drone, but can also determine the position of the operator. The advantage of this system over a detection system based on RADAR technology is that it does not send any signals itself and therefore does not cause interference when it is placed on a telephone pole, for example.
 
The pilot collective Dr-one supported the event and made available only pilots who flew through the airspace with a drone. The invitees could follow the exact flight route of the drones outside on a screen.
