AirWarden™ Mobile Drone Detection System

Drones are popping up everywhere. Whether you need to protect mass gatherings/events, guard high profile individuals or defend critical infrastructure on water or land, you can’t ignore aerial drone threats – either due to bad actors or careless hobbyists.

AeroDefense offers a mobile drone detection solution with a variety of deployment options.

Flexible, Dynamic Deployments

AirWarden Mobile Ruggedized Sensor

AeroDefense received a US Air Force contract in 2020 to modify its drone detection systems for military use, which included ruggedization. The new design is used in all AeroDefense temporary/portable and vehicle and marine vessel based deployments.

The system’s ruggedized sensor is small and lightweight (8″ x 10″ x 6″, <15 lbs) enough to easily transition from vehicles to temporary mounts with little effort and manpower.

Temporary/Portable Solution

AirWarden Temporary/Portable Mobile Drone Detection System

Our temporary/portable mobile drone detection solution can be moved from one location to another and set up in roughly 5-10 minutes.

Power and Network Requirements:

  • Generator not included
  • 120V AC or 12V DC power
  • Mobile LTE data plan or mesh required

Vehicle and Marine Vessel Based Solution

AirWarden Mobile Drone Detection - Vehicle and Boat Deployment

AirWarden sensors operate whether they are stationary in a command center vehicle or in motion such as on a patrol vehicle or marine vessel.

Power and Network Requirements:

  • 120-240V AC (wall) or 12V DC (car)
  • Mobile LTE data plan or mesh required

Sensor deployment options:

  • Temporarily or permanently installed in vehicle or boat
  • Mounted on an all-terrain vehicle
  • Deployed in a vehicle rack mount

Detection and LTE antenna deployment options:

  • Permanent vehicle mount (recommended)
  • Via a temporary suction-cup mount designed for low-speed patrols and non-metallic vehicle rooftops
  • Magnetic mount suitable for high-speed
  • Mast mount on a vehicle such as a boat or SUV
  • Temporary or permanent mount on an All-Terrain Vehicle
  • Mast mount on a Will-Burt pole (stationary)

Single Sensor vs. Multi-Sensor

Single Sensor – Proximity AlertsMulti-Sensor – Location & Tracking
The AirWarden single-sensor solution detects when a drone or pilot enters a defined detection zone based on preconfigured geofence boundaries.A network of AirWarden sensors provides location and tracking information for both the ground station controller and the drone.
– Provides audible/visual detection alert and detection icons keying in on the location for the drone and pilot within the user interface.– Provides audible/visual detection alert and detection icons keying in on the location for the drone and pilot within the user interface.
– Highlights rings for approximate distance from sensor and indicates whether the device is approaching, hovering or departing.– Displays user tools such as heat mapping, a historical trailing line for UAS movements and specific location data.
– Identifies the device start location and provides heat mapping for tracking each device.– Identifies the device start location and provides heat mapping for tracking each device.
– Stores detection and location information that can be shared or used internally.– Stores detection and location information that can be shared or used internally.

Dynamic Network Creation to Extend Detection Range

AirWarden mobile, in-motion sensors can operate independently as a single sensor or extend your detection range in two ways as seen in the figure below.
