At this year’s annual Passenger Terminal Expo, taking place in Paris, France, from June 15-17, 2022, Rohde & Schwarz (hall 7.3, booth Z1.3160) will showcase innovative solutions for drone detection and security scanning. Rohde & Schwarz is a key partner for airports, law enforcement and governmental authorities, as well as for internal and external security organizations.

To be seen at the show, the R&S QPS201 enhanced Advanced Imaging Technology (eAIT) security scanner delivers a market-leading high security performance and a fast and more comfortable passenger experience to complement the significant investments being made throughout airports worldwide to redefine the passenger experience. R&S QPS201 delivers high-performance security screening using safe millimeter wave radio frequency technology to rapidly and accurately screen passengers automatically for concealed objects.  In use at some of the world’s busiest airports since 2015, the security scanner has achieved European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) approval and has been certified by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), as it meets its stringent detection requirements.

Drones are a real and present threat to airports worldwide. Off-the-shelf unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are constantly in the headlines these days, with drone incidents an almost weekly occurrence. To counter these UAS threats, accurate classification of the type of the detected drone is critical to the subsequent decision-making process. Modular and scalable, R&S ARDRONIS can be deployed on a variety of platforms and readily integrated to accommodate specific threat profiles. The strength of this CUAS solution lies in the reliable localization of the drone pilot. Enhancing airport security, R&S ARDRONIS detects and locates drone pilots before a UAS takes off, preventing and minimizing costly downtimes at the airport. The drone’s remote-control uplink is detected from the moment it is switched on, providing an early warning benefit.
