DRI Ranges

DRI stands for Detection, Recognition and Identification and is based on the widely used Johnson's criteria.

  • Detection Detect if an object is present
  • Recognition See what type of object it is (i.e. person, vehicle, airplane)
  • Identification For example see if someone is a friend or foe
Detection Recognition Identification
Rabbit 158 meters 39 meters 19 meters
Person 558 meters 139 meters 69 meters
Vehicle 1352 meters 338 meters 169 meters

Please note that these values are calculated, always consult the manufacturer for official range numbers.
