Altitude Angel, recognized as a leading Unified Traffic Management (UTM) technology provider, has announced the creation of a new division named Prism Detect. This offshoot is poised to transform airspace security by leveraging the company's proprietary ARROW sensor technology, aiming to enhance aerial detection capabilities for both crewed and uncrewed aircraft around sensitive infrastructure and valuable real estate.
The newly launched Prism Detect is designed to provide a groundbreaking solution for airspace management, tapping into the power of ARROW's ground-based sensor towers. These towers are not only capable of mobile and temporary deployment but can also serve as fixed installations, offering a versatile approach to airspace surveillance.
This initiative marks a significant advance in Altitude Angel’s existing GuardianUTM platform, where real-time data from the ARROW sensors is integrated to present a unified, highly detailed view of the low-altitude sky. This creates an unparalleled, dynamic map that encompasses all types of aviation activity within a substantial radius of the sensor towers.
Richard Parker, CEO and founder of Altitude Angel, emphasized the innovation brought by Prism Detect: "Our core mission at Altitude Angel has always been to enable safe and efficient drone operations. Prism Detect extends this vision by offering an unmatched level of visibility and intelligence for those overseeing critical infrastructure or events, enhancing both safety and security."
What sets Prism Detect apart from conventional detection systems is its customizable nature. The system can be tailored to specific operational needs and environments, scaling the sensor array up or down accordingly. This flexibility makes Prism Detect particularly valuable for applications as varied as monitoring sprawling outdoor events, safeguarding facilities, or ensuring security over wide geographic expanses.
Moreover, its integration with GuardianUTM allows for real-time differentiation between authorized and unauthorized aerial vehicles. This capability is crucial for quick and informed decision-making, providing not only identification but also intent, by distinguishing potential threats from ‘friendly’ aircraft.
Prism Detect's rollout represents a significant step forward in the management and security of airspace, particularly at a time when the use of drones is becoming increasingly prevalent. With the ability to pinpoint and track all aerial movements within its purview, Prism Detect offers a proactive solution for a variety of sectors requiring diligent airspace monitoring.
As drones continue to proliferate across a range of industries, the launch of Prism Detect is timely. It addresses a growing need for comprehensive surveillance solutions that are adaptable and insightful, ensuring that airspace security keeps pace with the advancements in unmanned aerial technology.
