Echodyne Releases White Paper on Airspace Sensors for 3D Security of Critical Infrastructure
White Paper Identifies Key Requirements and Considerations for Adding Counter-UAS Capabilities to VMS-based Security Solutions
CHICAGO, IL – September 10, 2019 – Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance radars for government and commercial markets, announced today the release of its “Protecting Critical Infrastructure From Drones” white paper. The white paper is being released in conjunction with the Global Security Exchange (GSX) conference taking place September 8-12 in Chicago.
The white paper offers an important look at the security risks facing today’s critical infrastructure and the limitations of current deployments in the face of increasing overflight from small unmanned aircraft systems. It details how critical infrastructure security requires new airspace surveillance sensors, like high-performance radar, to address the threat from drones. The paper offers a detailed look at a variety of airspace sensors currently available on the market and their capabilities and limitations.
“Traditional approaches to securing critical infrastructure must be re-assessed to meet new challenges and threats, specifically the growing drone market and resulting increase in drones involved in perimeter security breaches,” said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. “Our high-performance radar is a game-changing sensor that provides comprehensive 3D situational awareness for critical infrastructure.”
The white paper is available for download on Echodyne.com/GSX and on Security Sales & Integration’s website. Echodyne will have copies of the white paper on hand at GSX in booth #3401.
