The Austrian Armed Forces rely exclusively on the AARTOS system.


Among several competitors, the Austrian Armed Forces have exclusively decided to use our well-proven AARTOS drone detection system.


Austrian Armed Forces uses AARTOS


The C-EAT (Countering Emergency Air Threats) project of the Air Force and Anti-Aircraft School, in which drone defence is a sub-area, had to close the capability gap for the defence of aircraft up to 15kg. Several competitors were asked to present their systems. The AARTOS system proved to be the most powerful and future-proof system for the challenges of the German Army. The military use of the AARTOS system is basically suitable for all scenarios. The focus here is on object protection and the securing of military facilities as well as the monitoring of state visits and major civil events.

Austrian Armed Forces uses AARTOS

An example of an already successful use of AARTOS is the surveillance of the conference of the Austrian EU Presidency at the Vienna Hofburg.

AARTOS DDS deployed at Heathrow Airport





Today, Aaronia announces that its anti-drone systems have been deployed at Europe’s No.1 Airport Heathrow as part of the airport‘s bespoke set of end-to-end counter drone measures to help to keep the country‘s busiest airfield free from drones. This one-of-a-kind Counter Drone system works by detecting and tracking drones in surrounding airspace and alerting airports of unauthorised drone use quickly and efficiently. This new and innovative system also works to locate the drone pilots themselves and can be used to identify their location. This technology has been specifically designed for Heathrow Airport and comprises of a variety of leading counter drone technologies, including systems from Aaronia as a central component of this anti-drone architecture.



The fast and accurate detection of rogue drones helps to keep Heathrow‘s passengers and colleagues safe and will support the airport, law enforcement and air traffic controllers as they work to protect Heathrow‘s airspace. This new kit will enhance detection capabilities and minimise delays, helping passengers to get away on time. The technology will also help the airport to meet its sustainability objectives, by reducing the fuel wastage and additional flight stacking caused by unauthorised drones use.


„The safety and security of our passengers and colleagues is our number one priority. That is why we‘re investing in this new cutting-edge technology, such as among others Aaronia’s drone defense system, which will enhance our capabilities in the detection and deterrence of drones in and around our airfield. We‘re delighted to have this unique system keeping our skies safe and helping passengers and cargo to get to their destinations on time.“


Jonathan Coen, Director of Security

NATO summit was protected against Drones by Aaronia's Anti-Drone System AARTOS


Aaronia's Drone Detection System has been the exclusive RF-based Counter-UAV System to protect the 2018 NATO summit.



Download this article as a .PDF here!



Brussels, Belgium, July 13, 2018 - The Belgium Police has selected the AARTOS counter-UAV system to protect the 2018 NATO summit from the growing threat posed by unmanned aircraft systems.





Multiple AARTOS systems have been used e.g. positioned at the roof of the NATO headquarters and on top of the Triumphal Arch in Brussels Jubelpark, the place where the NATO delegation had dinner.


Thorsten Chmielus, CEO, Aaronia AG, said: “We are proud to have secured yet another major International summit.” This contract with the Belgium Police follows the successful mission deployment of multiple AARTOS systems during the Trump/Kim Summit in June 2018. “AARTOS is fully automatic and developed so we have been able to meet the Belgium Police´s rapid delivery timescale” added Thorsten Chmielus.


As the only RF-based detection system, meeting 100% of the technical requirements of the Police, with a special focus on multi target high range detection in urban environments, the choice to choose the AARTOS system has been an easy one.





The AARTOS system can detect, track, identify and defeat a drone in approximately 3 seconds at a range of up to 15 km or 9 miles. AARTOS detects even multi band drones using RF detection in real-time before using a radio frequency (RF) jammer to defeat the drone. A fully integrated, long range auto target tracking camera backs up the RF detection and is used to verify the drone type and payload.


Using Aaronia AARTOS Sector Jammer Solutions, the operator can effectively take control of a drone and force a safe landing. The AARTOS system is military grade, designed and proven to operate in harsh environments. It works in all weather, day or night and the disruption is flexible, proportional and operator controlled.


AARTOS systems are in use by various government agencies, the police and military to protect high value critical national infrastructure and personnel or strategically important sites/events. These include nuclear power stations, borders, political or VIP events, airports and airbases.


The AARTOS detect-track-identify and defeat C-UAV system was released to the market in 2015 and already is offered in its 3rd generation with the 4th generation to hit the market end of 2018.


In 2017 over 50 systems have been deployed, while Aaronia already received more than 300 new orders for 2018.

Aaronia's AARTOS Drone Detection Systems protects the summit meeting of Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump



Aaronia AG, the advanced RF and MW technology company based in Strickscheid, Germany, published the use of their AI based Drone Detection System “AARTOS” at the historical meeting of Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump.

The fully automatic drone detection system AARTOS detects the RF emission of any drone and its remote control and offers a live situation awareness display incl. highly featured 3D flight plots.


Aaronia AG CEO, Thorsten Chmielus said: "We’re overjoyed to be a part of this historical and unique event to provide protection against drones. We are pleased that once again the inimitable capabilities of the AARTOS Drone Detection System are gaining in importance internationally."


The AARTOS system offers a unique ultra-high range (10-15km) 360 degree dome coverage. The detection technology is based on the patented AARONIA ISOLOG 3D Tracking Array Antenna, a UWB real-time Rf receiver “SPECTRAN V5” and a highly complex AI based Tracking-Software.





The AARTOS Drone Detection System allows very detailed analysis of any RF emissions e.g. “hopping” patterns of drones but also any other RF signals e.g. cell phones enabling to detect even the latest 4G based drones . The rapid proliferation of micro/mini UAV is a growing potential threat to national and commercial security.


As the use of drones becomes more and more commonplace, safety and reliability are of enormous importance. Drone Detection Systems are gaining in importance because of the increasing number of illegal drone entering areas (e.g. major events, airports, …). For safety, the position of the drones needs to be tracked by their RF emission. The user of the drone will also be detected by the emission of the remote control.


The sales figures of this systems are expected to grow rapidly over the next few years.

RF / EMC Camera System (19. Feb. 2015)


World's first RF / EMC Camera System


Aaronia presents the world's first RF / EMC “camera system”, the SPECTRAN RF VIEW.

The system consists of a complex measurement unit at each "pixel". Each unit consists of a Spectrum Analyzer from the SPECTRAN RSA series and connected isotropic broadband antenna which are all connected via network to a central server.

The antennas are arranged in equal distance in an X / Y grid. The measurement data (amplitude and/or frequency) are visualized as a "chessboard-display". Each field of the chessboard represents a measurement unit.

An RF camera with 8x8 points (64 pixels resolution) requires 64 measurement units that way.
This resolution seems to be rather small but already allows amazingly detailed measurements of antenna spreading characteristics or the graphical classification of radiated emissions during an EMC test.

The SPECTRAN RF VIEW saves considerable measurement time and allows very detailed information on the spreading patterns of emissions. The system can be extended to any size in order to reach much higher resolutions and is already successfully in use for research purpose and product evaluation of a leading telecommunications provider.

The system price is, despite the massive hardware insert, amazingly low. A 32 pixel system with 6GHz range is already available for less than € 100,000. Versions with up to 20GHz bandwidth will also be available against higher charge.

A real-time version, based on the latest SPECTRAN® V5 real time spectrum analyzer generation, is scheduled for 2015.

The next evaluation step is the extension to a 3D camera system (additional Z-axis) to obtain more complex information.
