Fortem Technologies completed a live demonstration on 20 May 2020 at its test flight facility outside Slat Lake City, Utah US, to show its AI-driven SkyDome system, powered by TrueView radar, detect and track objects in the airspace in 3D. The company demonstrated how the system cues the DroneHunter when a threatening drone enters the airspace, and how the DroneHunter hunts, pursues and captures offending drones, removing them safely.
Fortem is applying for phase two of the xTechSearch 5 selection process by the US Army. The programme explores novel science and technology solutions to tackle challenges to our national security, defense, and public safety, using innovative technologies developed within the private sector.
As part of this phase, Fortem will present its technology concept directly with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from the Army research and development, acquisition, and user communities. Up to 20 participating companies will move into the semi-finals, scheduled at the 2020 AUSA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC from October 12-14, 2020.
