Magos unveils new drone detection radar technology at GSX 2023

Sept. 8, 2023
Magos’ cutting-edge MASS+AI technology not only identifies the presence of drones but can also classify birds, reducing nuisance alarms and enabling security teams to differentiate between true threats and irrelevant targets.

Magos Systems, a leader in advanced AI-powered radar for perimeter protection, is proud to introduce its ground-breaking drone detection radar system, revolutionizing the drone detection and protection market with a cost-effective and highly accurate AI-powered drone detection solution.   

Debuting at the 2023 Global Security Exchange (GSX) in Dallas, Sep 11-13, at booth 4273, the AR-300 Drone Detection Radar from Magos Systems provides a 24/7 holistic approach to countering the threat of drones by encompassing detection, classification, locating, tracking, and instant alerting. Magos’ cutting-edge MASS+AI technology not only identifies the presence of drones but can also classify birds, reducing nuisance alarms and enabling security teams to differentiate between true threats and irrelevant targets.

Furthermore, the system’s ability to locate and track drones in real time ensures precise threat assessment. Alerts are issued via the clients’ VMS, empowering security personnel to respond swiftly and effectively to potential security breaches.  

The Magos AR-300 Drone Detection Radar provides complete close-range aerial protection of >300m for miniature drones (e.g., DJI Mavic) or larger, and 360-degree airspace area coverage with a radius of 300m using four AR-300 radars and one PTZ camera. Known for their accuracy and reliability, Magos radars work in conjunction with PTZ cameras and the Magos MASS+AI software that uses purpose-built AI algorithms to classify targets as drones, birds, vehicles or others with a high level of accuracy.

Designed for optimal performance under all weather and lighting conditions, Magos radar technology also significantly reduces false and nuisance alarms generated by poor environmental conditions or misidentification of detected objects. 

Magos’ drone detection solution offers a cost-effective alternative that is well-suited for a wide range of verticals, including stadiums, correctional facilities, critical infrastructure sites, and more. Its low power, low bandwidth communications, and small size allow for minimal site requirements and cost-effective pricing. Unlike traditional drone detection technologies that can be prohibitively expensive due to complex system requirements, Magos’ solution boasts minimal infrastructure and installation costs.

Moreover, Magos has also implemented a unique calibration procedure for the initial setup. This process ensures precise placement of the radars relative to the surveillance cameras. It’s executed with minimal airtime required from a test-target drone, which not only minimizes installation time and expenses but also upholds quality and performance standards. All of these factors combine to deliver an attractive, cost-effective, and adaptable solution suitable for sites of any size. 

“As the threats from drones and other sources continue to grow, organizations of all types are beginning to understand the unique benefits of ground-based radar drone detection,” said Yaron Zussman, General Manager, Magos Americas. 

 Relying on the experience and flexibility of the Magos’ solutions, the AR-300 Drone Detection Radar is easily integrated into any significant video management, pan-tilt-zoom cameras, and other security systems, for a complete picture of an organization’s perimeter, both on the ground and in the air. 

The AR-300 Drone Detection Radar seamlessly integrates into sites equipped with Magos’ systems, with minimal additional infrastructure needed. This enhancement significantly fortifies perimeter security for sites already employing Magos’ comprehensive perimeter protection solutions and introduces an additional layer of security to address the specific threats posed by drones.
