Ainstein Releases Customizable Ultra Long Range Airborne, Ground-Based Drone Detection Radar Sensors

Ainstein’s radar systems are well-suited for high-security facilities where the need for drone detection is especially high.

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Ainstein, a provider of intelligent radar sensing solutions, announces two new products in its Ultra Long Range UAV radar series; the Ultra Long Range Airborne (ULAB-D1) and Ultra Long Range Ground-Based (ULGB-D1) radars, said to be capable of precise detection more than 1,000 meters away.

Ainstein says the new ultra long range UAV radar systems address the need for highly precise and cost effective tools to minimize disaster risks and keep assets and classified information safe.

The radar systems are well-suited for high-security facilities where the need for drone detection is especially high, such as government buildings and airports, or critical infrastructure, such as water treatment facilities and mass transit systems.

“Customizable long-range radar systems are essential to keeping critical infrastructure safe from skyborne threats, which can range from UAVs conducting surveillance of a site to actual attacks on the site,” says Andrew Boushie, vice president of strategy and partnerships at Ainstein. “Whether accidental or malicious, unauthorized UAVs in proximity to critical infrastructure could have devastating impacts. Ultra long range detection means quicker, more effective responses to threats, as well as enabling safer operations for tasks such as infrastructure inspection, package delivery, disaster response and analytics initiatives. It is a critical component to receiving FAA authorization for such use cases.”

Now available for customized integration with aerial vehicle manufacturers, the ULAB-D1 is optimized for air-to-air manned and UAVs beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operation. Features include:

  • A compact sensor capable of integrating into high-speed and heavy-duty UAS platforms
  • Air-to-air detection and avoidance capability for BVLOS operations
  • Detection and tracking range of up to 1000 meters for manned and unmanned airborne vehicles
  • All-weather detection and tracking

The ULGB-D1 is optimized for ground-to-air drone detection and monitoring, and can be integrated and deployed by perimeter security solutions and service providers. Features include:

  • Valuable data to UAV traffic management systems
  • Detection for non-cooperative intruders and cooperative targets in the operating airspace for management of localized commercial UAS operations
  • A compact and portable sensor, ideal for temporary UAS flight operations
  • Two modes of operation:
    • An industry first rotating stand enabling 360-degree coverage for intrusion detection, threats and anomalous activity
    • A portable radar patch to cover the most critical areas at events such as concerts, sporting events and more

Both feature digital beam forming for highly precise elevation measurement and real-time processing for 3D detection, with speed measurement for more than 100 targets.
