Selected Research Projects

Aerial Dragnet (2017+)

The Aerial Dragnet program aims to achieve the technically difficult goal of detecting and tracking small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in urban terrain. The program seeks innovative technologies to provide persistent, wide-area surveillance of all UAS operating below 1,000 feet in a large city.
