Abstract
Small drones are increasingly being used for spying/reconnaissance applications. They are small in size, making them hard to detect. They can be carried easily on a backpack, launched and recovered almost in any terrains. They are capable of providing real-time situational awareness information through live videos and high-definition pictures. Thus they can pose real and significant threats to military operations, such as those that are foreseen to be conducted by the CAF expeditionary force in the Arctic. A survey is conducted on various methods for detecting the presence of small drones. A summary is given on the effectiveness of these methods. It is concluded that passive radar detection and radio-frequency detection hold good promise as useful techniques for countermeasures against drone surveillance.
