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 360 meters 90 meters 45 meters
Person 1266 meters 316 meters 158 meters
Vehicle 3066 meters 766 meters 383 meters

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