The objective of the project „Development of drone detection and defence systems” is to improve the characteristics of Rantelon’s drone detection and defence equipment, to add new functionalities and the development of a new generation device that integrates drone detection and defence into a single device. Additionally, visual detection device of Marduk Technologies is integrated to the system.
Artificial intelligent drone detection and defence technology will be developed that enables to control risks associated with explosive development of drones.
During the project, parameters of autonomous drone detection sensors (accuracy of signal classification and direction finding, drone motion modelling etc.) as well as interoperability of sensor systems (cooperative positioning, multi-sensor based drone motion positioning etc.) will be improved. Capacity of drone defence equipment will be extended to cover all frequency bands used by drones, introducing smart anti-drone principles and signals that reduce interference to other radio-communication networks and devices. One of the most important results of the project is the integration of drone detection and defence.
The project brings together Estonia’s leading anti-drone companies Rantelon and Marduk Technologies, and Sirius Microwave specialized in radio communication. Partners’ anti-drone capabilities based on radio communication and optics will be taken to a higher level and combined into complex solution to provide a comprehensive solution and increase sales potential.
The total cost of the project is 2 211 455,00 euros, of which the European Regional Development Fund will cover up to 1 617 768,80 euros.
The European Passive Radar Project PADIC has started
The kick-off meeting of the PADIC project took place on December 1-2 in Järfälla, Sweden. The European Defence Industrial Development Program project “Passive Acquisition by Digital Convergence” (PADIC) will develop a coastal radar network system with an open architecture; connecting passive, digital sensors of different types. Passive radars use reflections of signals from TV and […]
Ratelon is giving out two 2500 euro scolarships to IT students
Rantelon, in cooperation with Tallinn University of Technology, invites bachelor’s students in hardware development and programming to apply for a scholarship. The grant amounts to 2500 euros and is intended for two students. Rantelon’s goal is to recognize young active students in hardware development and programming. These students are potentially the next generation of engineers […]
Rantelon won the EDA Defence Innovation Prize.
Rantelon, in cooperation with Tampere university has won the 2020 EDA Defence Innovation Prize with their work “Full-Duplex Radio Technology for Enhanced Defence Capabilities Against Drone Swarms”. The core innovation of reaching full duplex capability should allow to simultaneously recon drones via their Radio Frequency (RF) signals and to neutralise them, e.g. via jamming, contributing […]
