SpotterRF Awards Pile Up for Drone Detecting A2000 Radar (Video)

SpotterRF, the leader in low-cost compact surveillance radar (CSR), and 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program Platinum Award Winner, caps off the year with worldwide praise for its new industry leading A2000.

This winning technology is the first CSR to provide cost-effective wide area deterrence against the growing threat of low flying UAV (drones) proliferating worldwide.

SpotterRF also leads industry efforts to improve FAA rule changes allowing electrical utilities and other critical infrastructure to rapidly respond to incoming drones intent on destruction of people and property.

“The FAA estimates the number of commercial drones will explode from less than 20,000 to 600,000 in the coming year,” states Logan Harris, CEO for SpotterRF.

“This increases risk of drone misuse against our critical infrastructure.”

“We are pleased to provide immediate relief to power substations and others that have become targets due to the ability of low-cost drones that can carry dangerous payloads.”
