Today, the popularity of quadcopter drones continues to climb. Divorced from military use, drones have a variety of uses for individual hobbyists, private organizations and state agencies.
But again, drones flying in airspace can compromise the safety of manned aircraft in flight. For this reason, it is necessary to conduct aerial drone detection and to determine if the drone is a potential danger in the air.
Drone detection methods include drone radar, optical technologies such as thermal imaging cameras, RF detection, and software applications that connect these components in a system, also known as layered drone detection methods.
If you are an Autel drone user, you will need to sign up for an Autel drone account. The account allows you to synchronize your flight data logs, which is your private information that we do not access and will not make public.
Most of the applications that detect drones know the exact location of your drone, while some are able to more accurately detect critical drone information such as drone ID and drone type. autel consumer drones currently have no official notification of remote ID access and will access the remote ID portal when new FAA regulations are issued in 2023 year.
Of the Autel consumer drone series, the EVO Nano series is a mini drone that weighs less than 250g and does not require registration. the EVO Lite series weighs up to 835g and requires registration.
Currently, the Autel Sky App is only available as an app for remote control of Autel consumer drones and for aerial photography, and cannot yet support drone detection services.
What are the benefits of drone detection?
Drone Detection allows you to identify a drone and its pilot. Provides users with the advantage of getting real-time airspace feedback.
Aerial drone detection can avoid some serious dangers if performed in some important areas such as near stadiums, prisons, oil and gas refineries.
Once you detect a drone on top of your private property, you can take steps to intercept it. The public sector has access to real-time visual data through drone detection methods. These technologies can record evidence in the form of video and images that can be used against perpetrators. These technologies can also provide a rapid response in the event of a threat in your area.
Can you detect drones at night?
Flying drones at night is thrilling and exciting, and flying over cities is even more adventurous. autel drones have flashing lights on the landing legs of the drones, as well as lights on the bottom of the drones. The light is so conspicuous that you can see it clearly at a range of 10 meters.
Drone detection is becoming an important task for individuals and security agencies. You can use RF analysis, radar and optical sensors to catch spies or stray drones in the airspace. These methods may be ineffective in some cases when used in isolation. But when combined to complement each other, you can detect almost any drone flying in an area.
Every drone should be the private property of its owner and fly in the air without infringing on the interests of others. The Autel Sky App does not currently support the detection of drones, and information about the remote ID of Autel drones continues to be awaited for updates.
