  • Publication number: 20210343165
    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses, and devices for identifying, tracking, and deterring UAVs via ADS-B signals are disclosed. The system leverages a plurality of sensors operatively connected over a network to a configuration of software and/or hardware for detecting approaching UAVs. In response to detecting approaching UAVs, the system generates and propagates ADS-B signals to be received by the UAVs for deterring the UAVs from entering a particular airspace, wherein the particular airspace is indicated by data encoded within the ADS-B signal. According to particular aspects of the present disclosure, the ADS-B signals can be propagated continuously or on-demand. Furthermore, the ADS-B signals may be generated based on real-time GPS data, or the ADS-B signals may be generated based on “spoofed” or hard-coded location data, for disguising a particular ADS-B signal as being transmitted from a different location.

  • Publication number: 20210025975
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatus for identifying and tracking UAVs including a plurality of sensors operatively connected over a network to a configuration of software and/or hardware. Generally, the plurality of sensors monitors a particular environment and transmits the sensor data to the configuration of software and/or hardware. The data from each individual sensor can be directed towards a process configured to best determine if a UAV is present or approaching the monitored environment. Radar sensors included in the plurality of sensors may identify specific locations corresponding to objects in an airspace, and video sensors such as PTZ cameras may be directed to collect image data of the objects at the specific locations for identifying the objects as UAVs and tracking the UAVs. The system predicts next locations for the UAVs and directs the PTZ cameras to update their orientations for following the UAVs.

Generally, the plurality of sensors monitors a particular environment and transmits the sensor data to the configuration of software and/or hardware. The data from each individual sensor can be directed towards a process configured to best determine if a UAV is present or approaching the monitored environment. The system generally allows for a detected UAV to be tracked, which may allow for the system or a user of the system to predict how the UAV will continue to behave over time. The sensor information as well as the results generated from the systems and methods may be stored in one or more databases in order to improve the continued identifying and tracking of UAVs.

  • Publication number: 20200272827
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatus for identifying, tracking, and disrupting UAVs are described herein. Sensor data can be received from one or more portable countermeasure devices or sensors. The sensor data can relate to an object detected proximate to a particular airspace. The system can analyze the sensor data relating to the object to determine a location of the object and determine that the object is flying within the particular airspace based at least in part on location data. A portable countermeasure device can be identified that corresponds to the location of the object. The system can transmit information about the object to the identified portable countermeasure device. The portable countermeasure device can transmit additional data relating to the object to the system.

  • Publication number: 20120271472
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing and monitoring a plurality of disparate electrical and/or electronic devices remotely, without the need for installing additional software on the devices. An energy management system installed within an organization's infrastructure communicates with devices from different vendors, makes, and models, housed at multiple geographically distributed facilities, for purposes of monitoring and managing several operational aspects related to such devices. Information related to various operational aspects retrieved from such heterogeneous, distributed devices is utilized in conjunction with energy management policies that remotely control or take actions with respect to the devices to achieve energy efficiency. Comprehensive energy management reports generated by an energy management system provide various details and analytics related to operational aspects of the managed devices.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing and monitoring a plurality of disparate electrical and/or electronic devices located at various geographically distributed facilities remotely on the basis of an instantaneous location of a user's mobile device that is associated with one or more electrical and/or electronic devices. Remote management of these devices involve transmitting information corresponding to a current location of a user's mobile device that will be managing the devices, without the need for installing additional software on the devices. An energy management system installed within an organization's infrastructure communicates with users' mobile devices and executes power management commands on the electrical and/or electronic devices, for purposes of monitoring and managing several operational aspects related to such devices. Such power management commands can be on-demand dynamic commands provided by a user's mobile device, or predefined commands stored in the energy management system.

  • Patent number: 8107739
    Abstract: A method and system for discovering from a database an object which is confusingly similar with a known object. A database, such as the internet, is searched for objects which, when discovered, may be duplicated and stored. A determination is then made if any object from the database is confusingly similar with a known object. A computer-readable storage medium storing program for causing a processing system to perform the steps of duplicating objects from a database to produce duplicated objects; storing the duplicated produce to produce stored duplicated objects; and determining if any stored duplicated object is confusingly similar with a known object.
