Counter drone system installed at Belgrade Airport

Real or imaginary drones have the potential to severely disrupt air traffic as we have seen during the Gatwick drone drama. To prevent similar scenarios from happening at the Belgrade Airport, a counter-drone system and nine security scanners have been installed.

The Belgrade Airport has procured and put into operations a counter-drone system from Rohde & Schwarz that is able to detect drones even before they take off. The anti-drone system can classify the device type and notify when a drone's remote control has been switched on.

With the help of this anti-drone system, the airport will even be able to track down the location of the drone pilot regardless if their drone is airborne or not. This will make ground security personnel more effective in locating the UAS operator and intervene before any incident can ensue. The Rohde & Schwarz system can also interrupt the uplink signal and forcing the drone into failsafe mode.

In Serbia by law drones are banned from flying within a five-kilometer radius around airports unless prior approval is obtained from the country's Civil Aviation Directorate, according to Exyu Aviation.
