RNC Avionics has developed the SKY PATRIOT video analytics system to automatically detect, track and classify UAVs as small as 30cm by 30cm at distances of up to 800m and larger UAVs over 1,000m away using proprietary video analytic algorithms initially developed in the NATEP funded DeNI project. SKY PATRIOT is a modular video analytics system that can be integrated with other sensor technologies such as radio frequency to provide a wide range of counter-UAV functionalities. The powerful video analytics engine can detect and track multiple UAVs simultaneously regardless of trajectories. The system filters out background noise such as birds, moving trees and people to ensure that the focus is on potential threats, with a minimum of false alarms.
RNC Avionics is a Lancaster-based (UK) SME that specialises in operational and technical consulting in the area of aviation security with an emphasis on information and communication technologies.
