Fortem’s most recent product provides modern air defense in a world with an increasingly crowded air space of unmanned aircraft or drones.
How does one live in a drone world, a much more crowded airspace with flying robots in the sky, and still feel safe and secure? The Fortem DroneHunter™ is a modern air defense system that provides the desired safety, security and privacy required in an easy to use system with no collateral damage, all at a safe distance from the protected area.
The Fortem DroneHunter™ is an unmanned counter-UAS aircraft engineered to autonomously fly toward unwanted drones in the sky -- without a human pilot on the ground – and detect, track, classify, monitor via video stream, inspect, and safely capture the intruder drone. Fortem’s DroneHunter™ is the world’s first counter-drone system that operates beyond line of sight (BLOS) using radar to protect a perimeter day and night from unwanted air threats.
Some of the technology was developed and hardened over several years on US Department of Defense applications and is now available for commercial use. Core technologies include TrueView Radar, machine learning, specialized guidance, secure data collection and services, robotics and aerospace design, and open command and control platforms for customers to detect, track, classify and mitigate unwanted drones. The open, secure ground station offers operational flexibility of multiple DroneHunters™.
