Drone Detection and Defense Systems: Survey and a Software-Defined Radio-Based Solution is a paper by Florin-Lucian Chiper, Alexandru Martian, Calin Vladeanu, Ion Marghescu, Razvan Craciunescu, and Octavian Fratu.
As the cost and size of drones have decreased in recent years, their proliferation has skyrocketed. Consequently, concerns surrounding the security implications posed by their presence have grown more substantial. It has become evident that there is a need to develop and deploy systems capable of detecting and defending against such threats. This paper presents a comprehensive survey of the existing literature on drone detection and defense systems, focusing on various methodologies such as radio frequency (RF), acoustical, optical, radar, and more. Special attention is given to RF-based systems implemented using software-defined radio (SDR) platforms. The survey adheres to the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA) guidelines to deliver a concise and comprehensive overview of the current state of the field. In the final section, the paper introduces our own solution developed within the framework of the DronEnd research project. The DronEnd system relies on RF techniques and employs SDR platforms as its primary hardware components
