Industry Solutions

UAV Surveillance

The safe integration of UAVs into the world's skies is revolutionising industries both old and new.

However, tracking technology is not keeping up with UAV innovators leaving airports, aircraft operators and legislators with unresolved operational and safety challenges that are slowing progress.

Precise data and accurate tracking is required.

  • Plane Finder is uniquely placed to deliver trusted tracking and monitoring, including Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), for all types of drones and unmanned aircraft.
  • Our commercial drone tracking service combines the power of the certified Plane Finder Radar ADS-B / MLAT receiver, with our trusted situational awareness data, to deliver a complete picture of the airspace of interest.
  • Plane Finder UAV Surveillance products support all aspects of tracking from planning through to historical analysis and are suitable for all industry participants including UTMs, system integrators, UAV operators and equipment manufacturers.
  • Bespoke and off-the-shelf solutions available. Real-time data delivered via streaming or time interval API feeds.

Space-Based ADS-B Data

Space-based ADS-B data enables tracking of aircraft beyond the capabilities of any terrestrial network and is especially useful for tracking over oceanic and remote areas.

  • Data fields include drone identifier, aircraft tail number, model type, coordinates, speed, altitude, flight number, departure/destination airports and much more.
  • Delivered via streaming or time interval API feeds.
  • Quickly integrate the data into your own operations and flight display systems via widely used JSON format. APIs fully documented with example code for ease of deployment.
  • Full global feed or customised to meet your individual requirement, for example by aircraft, fleet, region etc.
  • Plane Finder Space-Based ADS-B data will be available in 2020 as part of an augmented situational awareness feed including the latest data available from our combined satellite and terrestrial networks.

Real Time Intelligence Monitoring
