Protect Critical Infrastructure from Risks

Counter-drone solution against increasing drone terrorism


Critical infrastructures are vulnerable to increasing drone terrorism

The terrorist use of drones has unveiled a new type of vulnerability when it comes to critical infrastructure security. From energy stations, communications infrastructure, critical manufacturers, nuclear power plants, and more to dams or government facilities, critical infrastructure is at an increasing risk from terrorist and other malicious actors’ drone attacks, which can potentially have devastating consequences. As the use of drones becomes more widespread, it’s crucial to implement effective measures to protect critical infrastructure against drone threats.

Monitoring Threats: Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Rogue UAVs and UAS

Sentrycs’ Integrated counter-drone solutions help protect critical infrastructure with two autonomous DTI and Mitigation modules. Sentrycs’s unmatched user-level identification capabilities allow the use of authorized drones - which in critical infrastructure typically perform inspection, maintenance, surveying, delivery, and security tasks. Not less importantly, because it guarantees zero false alarms, it doesn’t unnecessarily disturb security & operations personnel.

  • Get real-time alerts when unauthorized drones approach a restricted perimeter
  • Differentiate between authorized and unauthorized commercial drones
  • Ensure infrastructure security by locating both drones and their operators


Ensuring critical infrastructure physical security with counter-drone solutions

The Sentrycs Mitigation module takes counter-drone security and cooperation between the different authorities (security personnel, law enforcement forces, etc.) to a new level. Sentrycs can be integrated into critical infrastructure command and control systems and alert security personnel in real-time, so they can take immediate action to secure the situation and infrastructure. Analyze the threat level, and determine the best course of action

  • Alert relevant authorities to safely land unauthorized drones ensuring infrastructure security
  • Maintain continuity for small and large sites
  • Help emergency personnel and law enforcement authorities apprehend operators to protect critical infrastructure


Frequently Asked Questions

Hard-killed or even soft-killed drones can crash and damage the site or the people at the site. Sentrycs's approach is completely safe.

Sentrycs counter-drone solutions enable critical infrastructure operations and personnel to carry out their missions without disruption. For example, at airports, our system guarantees reliable protection by detecting, tracking, identifying, and mitigating unauthorized drones attempting to breach the airspace, allowing airport operations to continue uninterrupted. The same level of security is provided to other critical infrastructure such as oil and gas refineries, power plants, government facilities, and more. With our system, you can expect super accuracy with zero false alarms, an effective detection range, and rapid mitigation response. Additionally, our solutions guarantee no interference with communication and GPS systems, no impact on authorized drones, and safe mitigation measures to prevent collateral damage. Our goal is to provide comprehensive security that allows critical infrastructure and personnel to focus on their core tasks, ensuring uninterrupted operations and maintaining a safe environment.

Critical infrastructure refers to essential locations, systems and assets that are vital for the functioning of a country and society, such as power plants, transportation networks, communication systems, and government facilities. These infrastructures are vulnerable to drone threats due to the potential disruption they can cause. Drones can be used for malicious purposes, including surveillance, sabotage, or carrying hazardous payloads, posing risks to the safety, security, and continuity of critical infrastructure operations.

A drone attack on critical infrastructure can have severe consequences. It can disrupt essential services, damage infrastructure components, compromise public safety, and result in economic losses. Drones can be used for reconnaissance to gather sensitive information, conduct targeted attacks, or even disrupt critical processes by interfering with communication systems or causing physical damage.

Critical infrastructure encompasses various sectors, and several examples illustrate their vulnerability to drone threats. For instance, airports like Gatwick Airport in the UK experienced disruptive drone incidents that resulted in flight cancellations and significant disruptions to operations. Power generation facilities, such as electrical substations and transmission lines, face the risk of unauthorized drones interfering with critical infrastructure operations. Similarly, nuclear plants, seaports, transportation hubs, water treatment plants, oil and gas refineries, government buildings, stadiums, and data centers are also susceptible to drone threats. The protection of these critical assets and sensitive areas against unauthorized drone activities is of utmost importance to ensure the security and functionality of our infrastructure.

Several technologies are available today to protect critical infrastructure from drone threats, including radar systems, radio frequency (RF) sensors, and optical sensors. However, these technologies often face limitations in dense urban areas with numerous communication signals, and they can cause collateral damage as they directly target and disable the drones. Additionally, their impact extends to authorized drones, hindering their operations. Furthermore, these solutions are not immune to false alarms. Integrated systems based on protocol analysis offer a specific yet comprehensive solution to counter unauthorized drones, ensuring the security and continuity of critical infrastructure operations. By providing an end-to-end solution that includes drone detection, tracking, identification, and mitigation, these systems autonomously prevent unauthorized drones from completing their missions, keeping critical infrastructure safe. Moreover, they eliminate the risk of false alarms, providing a more efficient and reliable protection mechanism.
