Recently, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been receiving significant attention due to the wide range of potential application areas. To support UAV use cases with beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) and autonomous flights, cellular networks can provide connectivity points to UAVs and provide remote control and payload communications. However, there are limited datasets to study the coverage of cellular technologies for UAV flights at different altitudes.
Extensive use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is expected to raise privacy and security concerns among individuals and
communities. In this context, detection and localization of UAVs will be critical for maintaining safe and secure airspace in the
future. In this work, Keysight N6854A radio frequency (RF) sensors are used to detect and locate a UAV by passively monitoring
the signals emitted from the UAV. First, the Keysight sensor detects the UAV by comparing the received RF signature with various
