Martek Anti Drone Systems (M.A.D.S) has announced a new partnership in the Middle East with Exalto Emirates to distribute drone detection and mitigation services for the marine industry.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Exalto Emirates will be M.A.D.S exclusive distributor in the region. M.A.D.S. automatically detects, identifies and tracks all drone(s) within its range, and offers user-configurable and escalating alarms. It constantly scans two frequencies and detects protocols and frequency hopping.

The system also has a ‘defeat’ capability so if a real drone threat is established, the system enables a 500m electronic exclusion zone to be created around the facility. Should the drone approach this exclusion zone, its control/video signal will be blocked, initiating its fail-safe mode and forcing it to land or return to its operator.

John W.R. Paul, general manager, Exalto Emirates, commented: “We’re really excited to add Martek’s anti drone system to our portfolio of products and provide our customers with a system that identifies and protects from this growing threat to maritime shipping.”

“The past few years have seen a massive uptake in the number of consumer-grade unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), with 22 million expected worldwide by 2020. The result of this uptake, of course, has been drones appearing in unwanted airspaces, say above ports, marinas, anchorage or popular waterways.”{/mprestriction}
