Xeoma's Drone and Airplane Recognizer is widely used in airports and private territory security

Nowadays drones are everywhere. They are expected to become a part of daily operations for commercial and personal use. It’s predicted that drone industry will grow to $63.6 billion by 2025. The biggest concern drone surveillance causes is connected with privacy issues.

Places with blocked or monitored ground traffic are often available by air, which is something drones operators can abuse. There is little to no legislation regulating the use of drones, so spotting them and quickly reacting might be a great way to protect the territory from flying invaders. And this is something Xeoma can do!

Drones are operated by humans that implies the factor of human error. Drones may crash and cause damage both to people and property, therefore, the use of the Drone and Airplane Recognizer on the territory of airports is a necessary security measure.


Drone and Airplane Recognition module does not require special equipment No special equipment or a powerful standalone server is required. Recognition load is on average 20% more than that of a regular camera in the program. Use our calculator here.


No special cameras with embedded recognition detectors required for Xeoma's Drone and Airplane Recognition module No special cameras with embedded recognition detectors required. Recognition processes are conducted on Xeoma’s side. High quality video stream is enough.


Affordable price Recognition of Drones and Airplanes at an affordable price. Depending on the required conditions and the desired result, you can choose Xeoma Pro or Xeoma Standard licenses and purchase the additional module “Drone and Airplane Recognition”.

After the module, add necessary filters and reactions to the chain: for example, the SMS sending, the Sound alarm, or the HTTP Request Sender for integration with external services.

On average, drone recognition is available at a distance of about 30 m. It depends on the camera positions and image quality. Depending on the conditions, recognition is possible both at a closer and at a longer distance.

Xeoma also has other types of detectors which can be useful in airports, as well as in business and private areas:
Emotion recognition to search for people with negative emotions (potential risk), as well as to analyze the quality of the service
Face recognition for automatic access to closed spaces (staff room, VIP hall)
Bird/Animal Recognition to avoid collisions with aircrafts on the runway
Anti-terror:recognition of abandoned objects
