Monitoring and Securing Prison Airspace
Correctional facilities and prisons require hardened ground and airspace perimeter security solutions, to keep people (and things) from entering or leaving the property. Security requirements include alerting, monitoring and protection against drones and other UAS that are capable of transporting dangerous items into prisons. Civilian drones are inexpensive, easy to operate and represent a new threat to prisons for smuggling to items to inmates. Currently, there is no regulatory governance preventing drones from flying near penitentiaries and correctional facilities.
Prisons around the world are under increased attack by drone operators delivering money, drugs, guns, and other contraband over prison walls. These deliveries can occur on a nightly basis. Drones have also been recorded hovering around prison walls, surveilling escape routes for prison inmates. Drones can move quickly, hover, and make evasive maneuvers to avoid detection. Drones are controlled by operators who easily stay hidden and out of reach from prison officials.
Fortem’s TrueView radar can alert prison security of approaching UAV activity up to 1,000 meters away, allowing security personnel to take appropriate mitigation or remediation action as needed. Fortem Ground Control will allow security to observe the situation to see who from within the prison receives the contraband, or to secure the situation thru several counter-measure options. When an intruder is detected, DroneHunterTM can engage autonomously via AI-directed detection, tracking, guidance, and pursuit. Once the rogue drone is identified and the threat level is analyzed (classified), DroneHunterTM will safely remediate the threat.

Fortem Solution Building Blocks
TrueView - The Most Compact, Long Range, Detect-and-Avoid Solution for Safe Drone Operations
Using AI-enabled algorithms, TrueView provides accurate real-time situational intelligence and awareness for safe autonomous unmanned aircraft operations. Fortem TrueView R20 weighs 1.5 lbs. and is a breakthrough technology, due to its small form factor, weight, power requirements and low cost.
Fortem’s Radar technology has been hardened over the past six years through rigorous testing with the US Department of Defense. TrueView extends this technology to detect potential air to air collisions and enables unmanned aircraft to safely navigate beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) day or night and in clouds, fog, smog and in other challenging weather conditions.
DroneHunter - Safe Mitigation in All Environments
DroneHunter™ is the world’s first UAS perimeter intrusion detection and protection solution. DroneHunter uses AI-enabled algorithms and software to provide detection, monitoring and autonomous capture of rogue drones and UAS. Once captured, DroneHunter can be instructed to tether and return or to safely discard the captured drone at a safe zone or bomb-disposal container.
DroneHunter™ notifies all authorized personnel of potential aerial threats in real-time. The command ground station provides monitoring and manual intervention override options as needed to meet situational requirements.
SkyDome - Real-time UAS Intrusion Detection Solutions
SkyDome utilizes TrueView’s AI-enabled detection and classification technology to provide a complete view of local airspace.
Fortem’s SkyDome platform of AI-enabled airspace surveillance services offers an intrusion detection solution that can detect, classify, monitor and if necessary, provide physical remediation of malicious or uncooperative drones. SkyDome is a military proven solution, able to monitor and secure day or night, and in all weather conditions.
