PLEASANT GROVE, UT and TOKYO - October 15, 2020 - Fortem Technologies, Inc., a leader in airspace security and defense for detecting and defeating dangerous drones, announced today that it has partnered with Mikuni Corporation, the experts in providing technology trade to Japan. The goal of this partnership is to provide enhanced security for civilian events as well as for critical infrastructure across Asia. Fortem’s SkyDome® System is an end to end counter UAS solution that detects and classifies threats and can then mitigate them autonomously with its interceptor drone, the DroneHunter®. The heart of the Fortem SkyDome System is TrueView® radar, a compact, AI-enabled, networkable radar designed to perform in urban environments as well as the complex terrain throughout Japan.
“We live in a world where basic hobby drones can be easily manipulated to deliver harmful payloads,” said CEO of Fortem Technologies, Timothy Bean. “In Mikuni, Fortem has a partner that will continue to ship the SkyDome System and DroneHunter, specifically designed for the vast urban areas of Japan and other parts of Asia that cause other solutions to fail due to the complexity of the terrain or highly congested environments. We look forward to working together to provide the most advanced airspace security in the world.”
“We conducted a deep analysis of the many counter-drone security providers out there,” said executive Jun Suzuki, of Mikuni Corporation. “Fortem’s radar-based SkyDome System outperforms RF detection systems and many others that cannot detect drones that do not emit a signal. It was important to us to identify a security provider that would be able to detect and mitigate dangerous drones even when no operator is present, and without causing collateral damage. We look forward to partnering with Fortem and increasing the security and safety of people in our country.”
Mikuni is working with Fortem Technologies to help with the seamless operation of exporting numerous security and defense solutions to customers in Japan.
