Drones: finding solutions to intrusions

Published on

The intrusions of drones into airports kept on increasing since 2011. In 2016, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has identified 1,400 intrusions in Europe, against 606 between 2011 and 2015.

Even if the European authorities have published many safety rules for the use of UAVs, it will take some time before they are applied in real life. Airports are still quite unprepared for these incidents. Some of them have already taken action. This is the case for Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Groupe ADP, which have developed a partnership and set up the Hologarde solution.

Hologarde integrates 3 main technologies to increase precision and protection. It uses HD cameras, radio frequencies and holographic radars. The data is transmitted to an integrated interface, fully customised. These different tools allow airports to better control their airspace and prevent intrusion.

The detection means exist. It is now a question of finding the solutions to neutralize the intruders. Lasers, anti-aircraft cannon, eagles ..., still not fully efficient, these actions are difficult to implement in these complex environments that are the immediate surroundings of an airport and the urban area.
