If you are unaware, DJI Aeroscope is a drone detection system developed by Da-Jiang Innovations (DJI), a leading drone manufacturer based in China. Aeroscope is designed for drone detection and identification, providing a solution for authorities and organisations to detect, track and identify drone activities in a given airspace.
Aeroscope is provided in two form factors, a portable version for instant and spontaneous deployments and a static version for more permanent monitoring. Aeroscope portable comes complete in a Peli style case, with integrated batteries and a 7″ touch screen providing the user interface.
Since it’s formal introduction in 2017, all DJI manufactured drones transmits what is known as a DroneID. Currently, Aeroscope supports the detection of 67 individual DJI aircraft models. In fact, DJI was the first to introduce what is commonly known as a RemoteID, albeit it was under their own proprietary protocol. DroneID contains packet data transmitted from the aircraft and contains data such as aircraft longitude, latitude and altitude, the pilots location and other telemetry related data which would be beneficial to tracking the location of the aircraft.
It is this DroneID which the proprietary Aeroscope system detects, processes and displays on the user interface.
