HAWK anti-drone system Detection: radars, direction finders and cameras

The HAWK anti-drone system is made up of the Hawk C2 detection, neutralisation and imaging and alarm systems. The detection system is made up of active detectors (radars) and passive detectors (direction finders), which are designed to detect the threat of a UAV – an unmanned aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone.

Advanced equipment enables detection of an UAV even before it enters the protection zone, depending on the technology used and individual configuration. 

The HAWK detection system enables the detection of an airborne intruder   within a range of up to 5 km  from the protected zone based on radar technology and the detection of the connection between the drone and the operator based on RF technology.

The use of radar and RF technology in the HAWK anti-drone detection system makes it possible to effectively protect critical infrastructure, civilian and military facilities and other protection zones from the UAV threat.

Learn about the detection elements of the HAWK ANTI-DRONE SYSTEM



The long-range radar is a software-defined, multi-mission, 4D AESA Pulse Doppler radar designed for the detection of unmanned aircraft.

The radar detects drones with a low radar cross section (RCS) as small as 0.001 m2 .


3D omni-directional radar

A medium-range radar designed for drone detection and tracking,
with an electronically scanned beam. Using a high scan rate, this radar detects drones moving at minimum speed. The radar has advanced tracking algorithms to ensure a low false alarm rate and can track up to 512 targets simultaneously.


3D sector radar

This is a unique multi-purpose radar that allows the protection of border areas, critical infrastructure sites, detection
and tracking of unwanted UAVs (including micro UAVs).  Individual sector radars can be linked into a local network to protect a larger area.

Direction Finder

(RF scanner)

It is used to detect the connection between the drone and the operator, allowing not only the drone to be detected, but also the position of the operator to be determined.

An extensive library makes it possible to classify the manufacturer and model of the UAV. The direction finder has a built-in and successively updated library containing the latest drone models.


Fully integrated into the system are cameras that automatically target and follow an airborne intruder when it is detected.

The view from the cameras enables identification of whether a subject has contraband, explosives or other dangerous items attached.
