Counter-UAS (C-UAS) is essential for identifying and neutralizing drone threats, including those with hostile motives to non-malicious but hazardous scenarios like emergencies or flyaways. By integrating C-UAS with UTM platforms like Unifly, defence and security agencies can differentiate between conformant and potentially malicious or dangerous drones.


Challenges in Differentiating Drones Threats

Rising Drone Use and Security Challenges

As drone technology advances and expands, the challenge of safeguarding against unauthorised or malicious use intensifies.

Differentiating Remote-ID

Current C-UAS Systems are capable of detecting drone presence but lack the capability to differentiate between those adhering to regulations, indicated by remote ID, and those potentially posing threats without remote ID.

Identifying False Positives

Even drones that utilise remote ID can pose a security or safety threat, known as false positives. It’s crucial to distinguish drones that are truly following flight regulations from those that might intend harm or accidentally stray off course, such as in emergencies or due to losing control.

Unifly's Solution to C-UAS Challenges

Unifly’s platform gathers remote-ID information from drones through various mechanisms and supplies this data to C-UAS systems, enabling C-UAS systems to distinguish between drones with and without remote-ID.

The system validates drone operations and conducts compliance checks to detect deviations in drone behavior, flagging those with potential malicious intentions or those posing a risk to safety, known as false positives. The Unifly UTM platform sends these conformance alerts to C-UAS systems.
Integrating C-UAS with Unifly’s UTM platform allows for comprehensive drone monitoring, enabling quick responses to non-compliant activities and improving airspace security.
Our UTM platform has successfully integrated with existing C-UAS systems and surveillance radars.
The platform supports various API exchange standards, such as ASTERIX, to integrate with C-UAS/Surveillance radar systems.
