Martek Marine has announced the addition of the Marine Anti Drone System (MADS), the world's first marinized anti-drone detection system, to its impressive portfolio. MADS provides the latest technology to combat the increasing threat of unmanned aerial systems.

Martek Marine is a leader in manufacturing and supplying marine equipment. Their extensive and wide-ranging portfolio includes gas and water ingress detection equipment, emissions monitoring systems and potable water test kits.

MADS identifies drones within a range of five kilometers, giving GPS positioning of drones and pilots, coupled with drone speed and direction. A series of alarms allows its users to quickly assess a threat and take action. On identifying a threat, MADS can create an exclusion zone, stopping a drone's signals and forcing it to land or go back to its controller.

Drones are being increasingly used in the commercial and civilian sectors, and over the next five years, their worth is estimated to reach a staggering $127 billion. While many are used legitimately in the marine industry to provide essential information about safety, structural issues and cargo, the threat of them being used for disreputable purposes such as hacking or stealing data or terrorism is real and increasing.
