CLEARSKYTM Ports

Ports are becoming more reliant on wireless communications as the trend towards automation continues. CLEARSKY™ provides an added layer of security for today’s ports, increasing operational efficiencies through real-time RF monitoring and analysis as well as providing a world-class Drone Threat solution that has zero impact on critical communication systems when mitigating threats. CLEARSKY™ provides visibility and control of your RF environment and a virtual safe zone around your port environment.

Making sense of the chaos

Port operators contend with a myriad of communication issues related to inbound ship traffic, perimeter protection, asset protection, dockside safety, frequency coordination, and interference management. This chaotic and congested wireless environment, combined with emerging threats like drones and jammers, creates an extremely challenging problem that requires an intelligent solution.

“Failure to effectively manage this environment jeopardizes the port’s reputation, revenues, safety, and lives”

The key to operational efficiency and safety is a solution that addresses threat management while ensuring the availability of reliable communications. CLEARSKY™ delivers enhanced security and operational efficiency by combining the power of patented wireless spectrum management with state-of- the-art drone mitigation. This combination of real-time environmental and situational awareness ensures that communications are available for those who need it most, like security personnel and first responders, while actively searching for and addressing threats.

CLEARSKY™ unmasks the hidden threats in your wireless environment.

Port RF Operations

  • Identifies and locates interference and performance issues for wireless camera systems, staff radio, and machine-to-machine communications.
  • Assists with frequency coordination.
  • Constantly learns the environment, identifying emerging issues and enhancements.
  • Identifies location of jammers used to disrupt Wi-Fi and other port communications.
  • Mobile surveys/monitoring available for areas not covered by fixed nodes.
  • Monitors “RF quiet” area for unloading hazardous materials.
  • Provides optimum performance models for different environmental scenarios, such as ship entrance/exodus, while fine tuning throughout the day.

Port RF Security

  • Identifies open channels in emergencies, delivering dedicated, clear communication to first responders and security staff.
  • Detects and tracks potential threats by identifying signals that are not typical to the environment, allowing rapid intervention.
  • Patented signal detection and learning engine identify emerging issues from 70 MHz to 6 GHz and minimizes “false positives” when monitoring threats.
  • Historical analysis shows location of nefarious signals over time, identifying trends and correlated events that could disrupt communications.

Drone Threat Management Zone

  • No operator input required.
  • Creates a “ring-fence” that protects the entire port from single drones or swarms. Intelligently engages drones and prevents them from entering restricted airspace, instead of the usual “brute force” attack.
  • Mitigates drone threats without impacting other communications.
  • Regularly updated algorithms and signature databases ensures protection against new drones

CLEARSKY™ for Drone Threat Management

  • After configuration, no hands-on operator input required.
  • Protection against single UAVs and swarms.
  • Provides controller and video/telemetry targeting.
  • Targets UAV threat only, with all other communications unaffected.
  • Mobile and/or fixed deployments.
  • On-going software updates to the hunter algorithm and machine learning database protect against new drones
  • Handles incursions of Group 1 and Group 2 small UAS – including DJI Phantom 4 and several Group 3 UAVs.
  • Surveys wideband communications spectrum (70 MHz to 6 GHz) for drone signatures.
  • Hunter algorithm and drone library features machine learning, enabling rapid assimilation of new signatures.

CLEARSKY™ for Spectrum Management

  • Autonomous with standalone or networked and fixed or mobile deployments.
  • Automatically deconflicts all communication channels in real-time, looking for interference and potential threats.
  • Each node has a sweep speed >24GHz/sec between 70MHz – 6GHz (can be configured)
  • Automatically sends alerts to the appropriate party (ies) for remediation.
  • Supports port communications and wireless security cameras.
  • Can deliver additional insights such as radio IDs (digital) and quality metrics such as Received Signal Strength and Bit Error Rate for deep analysis.
  • Coverage mapping and dead spot detection (mobile unit).
  • Remote access and management from any desktop via secure online portal.
  • Backhaul data to a central node or Operations Centre for further analysis and centralized management
