Oman Airports has signed an agreement to install the latest drone detection system at Muscat International Airport.

The deal was signed in collaboration with German firm Aaronia and R&N Khimji, who will deliver and install the system at Muscat Airport.

Upon installation, it will be the first international airport in the world to feature an operational drone detection system.

The latest equipment will improve air navigation and protect the surrounding areas of the airport, including the runway.

Oman Airports CEO Aimen Al-Hosni claimed that the system can detect multiple drones and other devices at various frequencies simultaneously and comes equipped with sophisticated long-range cameras for additional verification.

He said: “Aaronia has been working with high-end radio frequency and microwave systems for over 15 years, with all software and hardware being developed in Germany.”
