Squarehead Technology, the leading provider of long range industrial acoustic detection devices will embark on a consortium with the French audio analytics corporation ORELIA SAS in order to develop automatic drone detection solutions.
The solutions will combine the excellent portfolio of Squarehead microphone arrays with the real time sound recognition capacity of ORELIA – creating an exciting new product line of sensors that can stand alone, or be integrated into 3rd party security systems.
“Drones remain a clear and present threat to any prison, oil refinery, government installation or other facility that may be subject to smuggling, terrorism or espionage attempts”, says CEO Stig Nyvold of Squarehead. “We plan to deliver a passive, radiation-free device that represents robust detection in real time, Allowing For Proportional response through the application of available Counter Measure Resources. This consortium allows us prove that the detection and tracking of drones through audio is efficient and implementable in a 24/7 security regime”.
Mr. Nyvold expects the new products to be presented at the Milipol exhibition in France in November this year.
