Radar Systems stand out as the most effective solution for detecting drones that have become an up-to-date and asymmetric threat in critical facility and border security applications. Meteksan Defence developed the KAPAN Counter Drone System using its resources and launched it in 2018.
The Retinar FAR-AD Drone Detection Radar has a new antenna customised to detect mini/micro UAVs, high-performance hardware and special algorithms supported by artificial intelligence technologies.
Thanks to its new structure, Retinar FAR-AD can detect air targets from a longer range and scan a wider area at a glance. The camera system serves the classification and tracking of the detected drones. The jammer system that neutralises the drones is also included in KAPAN.
KAPAN Counter Drone System has a new developed Command Control Software. The software produces a common aerial picture with the information collected from all sensors. The software has its artificial intelligence-supported algorithms, 3-dimensional interface, open, scalable and modular architecture.
İzzet Adil Baktır, Vice President of Meteksan Defence, emphasises that they have implemented a very effective system against mini/micro UAV threats with KAPAN. Baktır said in sum, “The emergence of drones as a threat is a new issue for several years. The whole world is debating what would be the most effective solution to this threat. The issue has many dimensions and they all need to be dealt with separately. We have developed the KAPAN Counter Drone System as an open architecture system that can handle different aspects of the issue, and can include scalable, different types of sensors and drone destruction strategies to meet different operational needs. At IDEF 2021, we want to highlight the new face of this system, KAPAN Command Control Software. This software, supported by artificial intelligence, performs the process of detecting and neutralising of drone threats in few seconds completely automatic, regardless of the operator. We see that this puts Meteksan Defence in the forefront in the competition emerging in the field of anti-drone systems in the world.”
