What is the DroneSim

DroneSim is a critical tool in the simulation, training and testing of drone detection equipment and processes.

DroneSim replicates the radio frequency signatures of selected drones, from an extensive drone library. Drone detection and Counter-UAS equipment recognizes DroneSim activity as it would real-world threats.

The DroneSim is hand portable and compatible with DroneShield’s standard power and data cabling. Drone signals are emitted through an omni-directional wide-band antenna that can be mounted to the device or mounted to a mast or pole using the included bracket and strap. This provides the device with operational flexibility.

DroneSim has a device manager that enables the operator to select drones to simulate from a pre-loaded library. This device manager can be accessed and activated remotely providing DroneSim is connected to a network.

Benefits of DroneSim

  • Inconspicuous Design – Subtle, easily transported and setup design.
  • Rapid Deployment – DroneSim can be rapidly set up with its self enclosed design, which houses its cables and antenna.
  • System Testing when flying prohibited – Allows users to select between UAS protocols and simulate drone flights for system testing.
  • Supports Remote Operation – When connected to a network, DroneSim can be operated entirely remotely.
  • Rugged Exterior – Carry case provides protection from the elements as well as shock and vibration.
  • MIL-SPEC Connections – Device power and data connections utilise MIL-SPEC connectors, in line with other DroneShield products.
