ideaForge Technology Pvt. Ltd. and Aaronia AG (Germany) announced a strategic partnership to integrate their solutions to provide end users with a complete and unique intrusion monitoring solution that can track dynamic threats, in the air or on the ground through both operating and monitoring drones via an integrated control center.
By integrating ideaForge drones with Aaronia’s AARTOS command & control solution, they can offer end users a single point for drone operations and surveillance with potential reduced investment of communication infrastructure required for operating the drones. In addition, the strategic partnership includes plans to support the Make in India initiative to develop some of Aaronia’s hardware in the country.
“Although drones are leading industrial revolution 4.0 and bringing about business transformation, the lack of regulations and ease of access to drones have led to an increase in their malicious use. Aaronia’s state-of-the-art solution combined with ideaForge’s expertise will make way for safer use of airspace and yet allow monitoring of threats/assets on ground in a safe environment,” says ideaForge Co-Founder & CEO, Mr. Ankit Mehta.
ideaForge being a market leader in drones in India and AARTOS being a leading drone detection system, it seemed to be an obvious partnership for the safe and secure usage of airspace. It will be seen as one of the first of its kind partnerships towards counter-rogue-drone technology reducing the unwanted and unethical usage of drones in India.
The Aaronia AARTOS solution is the leading drone detection system in the world with over 100 installations in 2018 and 300 under preparation in 2019. It offers an all-in-one integrated solution for drone defense, whether mobile or for stationary 24/7 surveillance. AARTOS is the only system on the market that can provide accurate detection using RF-antennas only including height information of drone. Further, the system can monitor the complete spectrum of RF (e.g. 20 MHz to 20 GHz) in real time. Realtime DF Frequency Monitoring for all frequencies and directions at the same time with up to 48THz/s; equaling hundreds of sweeps per second.
Two decades of focus on spectrum analysis and RF monitoring have allowed Aaronia to achieve this innovation and the technology will allow end users to have real-time access to everything in the RF space including ISM, TETRA, GSM, LTE, 3G, 4G, 5G, etc. When we consider this development in terms of drone detection, AARTOS can monitor all bands of RF simultaneously, unlike other drone detection systems which only monitor the commonly used frequencies.
ideaForge is India’s largest manufacturer of drones for defence, homeland security and industrial applications. Founded in 2007 by IIT-Bombay alumni, the organization has a consistent market share of over 90% in Security & Surveillance segment. The organization is a licensed manufacturer of UAVs approved by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and is backed by leading organizations such as Qualcomm, Infosys, IndusAge Partners and WRV Capital.
ideaForge is the first organization to indigenously develop and manufacture Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) UAVs in India. It is the pioneer in the UAV industry in India and has multiple IPs to its credit, including the then world’s lightest autopilot in 2009. Currently, the organization has deployed over 700 systems and has trained over 1200 pilots in services including Indian Army, Navy, Air-Force, all CAPFs (CRPF, BSF, NSG, etc), State Police Forces, Indian Railways, TAFE, NTPC, DRDO, L&T and many more.
