Alphabet Unit Tests New System to Identify Airborne Drones

Monday 20:54 GMT

Wing unit and two other companies say they demonstrated a novel system to identify airborne drones, potentially paving the way toward expanded commercial uses of unmanned aircraft.

The concept, tested in December near San Francisco and expected to be announced on Tuesday, is aimed at tracking different types of drones using disparate software applications linked by a common web-based system. By sharing such data, the companies say the location of drones and identity of operators can be captured easily on laptops, cellphones or other digital devices simultaneously.
