To mitigate this threat of small UAS, key regions and assets need to be protected from hostile UAS. To achieve this, hostile UAS need to be detected, identified, localised, and only then neutralised. One of the greatest challenges is in their detection and tracking, due to their small size.

There are number of sensor solutions that can detect these small UAS e.g. cameras, radar, LIDAR and acoustic.  However, each sensor system has their disadvantages e.g. Limited range, needing daylight, low accuracy, high false detection rate.
