An integrated system to counter unauthorized flights of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) blocking their radio signals over the territory of the airfield will be implemented at the Heydar Aliyev International Airport.
The appearance of drones over airfields or near the runways can cause interruptions and delays in flights, moreover, collision with drones or drones getting sucked into engines can damage the aircraft.
Therefore, protecting the territory of the airport from unauthorized use of drones is a priority task for civil aviation and one of the main goals of the “Azeraeronavigation” Air Traffic Control Department (AZANS).
Thus, AZANS introducing a solution to protect against malicious or unintentional use of drones over the entire airspace of the Heydar Aliyev International Airport.
With an effective protective radius in the horizontal and vertical planes, the system will prevent the risk of delays in flight schedules. The anti-drone protection will not affect the communication providers' network and the transmission of signals to the navigation system.
The operating principle of the system is that it finds drones near airports and interferes with their control forcing them to return to the point of takeoff.
