Fortem Technologies, the technical leader for counter drone security and defense solutions, announced today that it has expanded its global presence with a strategic Gulf Region (GCC) end user deployment in the national security and defense sector.
“The military drone space is expected to surpass $21 billion by 2026, indicating a sizable market that’s growing aggressively,” said Timothy Bean, CEO of Fortem Technologies. “Fortem provides the world’s premier, radar-guided, autonomous aerial drone for safe removal of small drones, low flying fixed wing threats and swarms safely in an urban environment.”
Now deployed, the Fortem SkyDome® System consists of distributed TrueView™ radar to detect and identify uncooperative drones, and the Fortem DroneHunter®, which is autonomously cued by SkyDome to further evaluate the threatening drone and remove or disable it from a safe location with no collateral damage. The SkyDome System and DroneHunter are the category leader for kinetic, non-lethal C in defending against low flying drones and in protecting critical infrastructure, military bases, borders, and coastal areas from drones that attempt to pass undetected by traditional ground-to-air defenses.
“Providing the most comprehensive threat detection and safe mitigation solution has always been our top priority,” said Malek Akilie, VP Middle East, CIS and Africa Region at Fortem Technologies. “Our team in our UAE office is here to provide drone mitigation in an era when jamming and electronic attack are no longer sufficient to stop criminal or terrorist drones.”
