AirWorks explain how to protect airports from drones with DJI Aeroscope

Posted 30 January 2020 · Add Comment

DJI Aeroscope can identify the most popular drones on the market today by monitoring and analysing their electronic signals to gain critical information.

 

As consumer DJI drones become more popular, there are rising challenges in safety and security for areas such as airports, prisons, nuclear power plants, prohibited military zones and various government sites and infrastructures. Traditional protections in these locations may not be able to adequately detect and monitor UAVs to prevent consequential incidents.

 

The risk of drones flying near airports is certainly widespread, with news reporting momentary shutdowns in several cities. Just last November, suspected drone activity caused momentary flight diversions in Sharjah International Airport.

 

In the UAE, drone regulations are established by the GCAA, while in the Dubai Emirate, the DCAA is responsible.

 

Drone use is forbidden within a 5km radius of airports, and a minimum distance of 10km must be kept from takeoff and landing paths.

 

The flying regulations are many and not always easy to understand: to navigate through them, AirWorks offers a free online course about Dubai Drone Regulations. All the content is divided into three easy to follow chapters to ensure an enjoyable learning experience and learn all the necessary information.

 

Airports should definitely start thinking about investing in solutions to prevent drone-related accidents from happening.

 

DJI offers a GEO system that delineates where it is safe to fly a drone, where flight may raise concerns and where flight is restricted (such as around airports, power plants and prisons).
