Danger from drones: Monitoring airports with millimeter wave radar

If drones get in the way of aircraft taking off or landing, it can be dangerous. The German government would therefore like to provide better protection for airports. The radar system SSRS can help to solve this problem, because it is a research demonstrator and it simultaneously monitors the ground and airspace, classifies objects and determines their flight altitude. The system can also be used to monitor military camps and checkpoints.
