Recent research reveals that signature disruption strategies of detection delay and disguise can provide effective counter-surveillance techniques for contemporary low-altitude Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or drone detection platforms. As the first in a series of tiered tests, a virtual 3D model of selected ‘scaled-up’ HSV-based (Human Visual System based) algorithmic patterns and 3D biological nanostructures were found to disrupt a camera sensor when mirrored in a physical surface. Further prototype and field tests will be conducted to corroborate these findings, with the ultimate aim of proposing an effective, controllable and disruptive mechanism to overhead UAV surveillance technology.
