“To provide the most effective, next generation, counter-drone technology through patented innovation and global partnerships ”
XiDrone Systems Inc. is a Florida-based corporation that specializes in developing Counter Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UAS) technologies to protect sensitive airspace from the threat of Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) drones. In 2014, our company identified a critical market need for cost-effective drone detection and defense solutions – that solution utilizes next generation commercial components to replace repurposed military systems that are costly and ineffective against small commercial drones.
Initial counter drone systems used military Air Defense radar systems and other repurposed military equipment as a quick fix to protect against this new type of emerging threat. However, these systems are very expensive and did not work well in detecting or tracking a small aerial target operating a few hundred feet above the ground. An effective commercial solution needed to be developed to replace the ineffective military option being used.
Air Defense radars operate in the Ku, K and Ka frequency spectrum (12 – 40 GHz). XiDrone Systems recognized that this frequency spectrum was not very effective when scanning just above the horizon where commercial drones operate and where physical obstacles are abundant.
XiDrone System engineers discovered that using lower radar frequencies produced far better results at a fraction of the cost. The XiDrone C-UAS systems and methods focus on lower radar frequency bands and other Next Generation sensor technology to detect, track, identify, and if necessary, mitigate Class 1 & 2 drones.
XiDrone Systems believes that the successful integration of commercial drones into the National Airspace System (NAS) will require Next Generation multi-sensor technology designed for reliability and cost effectiveness. Our methodology fully supports the FAA UTM & UAM architecture.
It has become abundantly clear to XiDrone Systems that our Next Generation Counter Drone system and methods will quickly advance the benefits of commercial drone operations while simultaneously protecting sensitive airspace.
XiDrone Systems has designed a Drone Detection & Defense system that is:
The XiDrone Systems engineering team successfully developed a solution that accomplished all of its Counter Drone objectives. The company filed for our first patent in December 2014 and is proud that our technology is currently providing a substantial benefit to the Commercial Drone Industry around the world.
In 2017, XiDrone Systems was issued a Seminal patent for Class 1 & 2 Counter Drone, multi-sensor, technology.
