BT’s new counter drone solution

BT has launched a counter drone solution that will be provided by its enterprise unit and give organisations the capability to detect, track and identify drones which breach airspace and site limits.

The end-to-end and fully BT managed solution is a combination of multi-sensor detection technology, an enterprise-grade network and a real-time alert system and according to BT has a range of up to 5km, can provide 360-degree detection coverage and provide early warnings to security teams. Its in-built tools can gather, process and report information in real-time, aiding reporting and the understanding of drone activity so that preventative measures can be put in place.

BT will deliver its counter drone solution in partnership with DroneShield, a company specialising in drone detection and disruption technologies. In recent years, DroneShield’s products have been used at a variety of sites and events, including the 2018 Olympic Games in South Korea, and by a number of high-profile defence organisations such as The British Army and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Where legal, BT’s counter drone solution also provides a range of countermeasures, such as fixed signal blockers that can jam drones up to 1.5km away, to portable disruptors that will help to deter and defeat drones. The use of active counter measures is highly restricted in the UK and requires prior government authorisation.
