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 1058 meters 264 meters 132 meters
Person 3725 meters 931 meters 465 meters
Vehicle 9019 meters 2254 meters 1127 meters

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