Robin Radar Systems is supporting the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in establishing a ‘no drone zone’ at the site of the Key Bridge collision in Baltimore, MD. 

Drone intrusions pose an increasing challenge for public safety agencies tasked with securing critical infrastructure, large events, and emergency management operations. 

In response to the recent collision involving the MV Dali and the Francis Scott Key Bridge, extensive recovery efforts are currently underway to clear debris from the site. To facilitate these operations without the interference of unauthorised aerial vehicles, a 'no drone zone' has been established.

The IRIS 3D drone radar is known for its compact size, lightweight design, and ease of deployment. A trained user can set up an IRIS radar system in under 15 minutes, enabling Robin Radar to respond swiftly to DHS's need to detect unwanted drones

Meije Kentson, Head of Technical Sales at Robin, commented: 

“Our collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security was developed through extensive trials and field tests over the past year. 

These tests demonstrated IRIS's capabilities in accurately detecting and tracking drones and other unmanned aerial systems (UAS). Even in challenging environments like the bustling Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore, IRIS can monitor hundreds of airborne targets and reliably differentiate between drones and other objects like birds or bats.”  

Robin Radar Systems remains committed to supporting public safety agencies around the globe with advanced radar technologies that ensure safety during critical events and operations.
