The Surprising Key That Will Enable Drones To Change The World

The Surprising Key That Will Enable Drones To Change The World

May 23, 2019

A system that can’t tell a drone from a seagull, or an ordinary drone from a malicious one, is not operationally useful. According to Leo McCloskey from radar manufacturer Echodyne, the magic is in the radar signal processing software. Echodyne’s radar uses indicators within the signal, including object size, flight path, and the Doppler signature from the drone’s spinning blades, to distinguish drones from birds.
