Fortem Webinar Series

Fortem Technologies holds regular webinars on trending topics in the airspace awareness, safety, and defense space, including Counter-UAS (C-UAS) and the advancement of Urban Air Mobility.

Upcoming Webinars

In this webinar, Fortem will provide guidance and best practices for this critical topic. Geared towards an international audience, Fortem will discuss the current and emerging threat situation as well as providing some welcome good news about recent testing events. Practical advice will be given on selecting sensors and mitigation systems which will be effective for current as well as future threats, and suggestions for Standard Operating Procedures when dealing with drone threats.

Date: Wednesday, December 15th, 2021

Time: 12 noon ET

On Demand Webinar Library

In this webinar we'll discuss the four specific Federal agencies that are currently allowed to do C-UAS, what kind of C-UAS activities are permitted by the FAA in the USA, and what the rest of us can do to protect from dangerous drones in the interim.

Recorded October 27th, 2021

Dangerous drones have been in the news lately, with deadly consequences. Drone experts Gary Watson of Fortem Technologies and David Kovar of Unmanned Robotics Systems Analysis (URSA) go behind the headlines and discuss these dangerous trends, what you should take away from them, and practical solutions for drone threat mitigation.

Recorded September 8th, 2021.

Description: Join Wayne Phelps, Author of On Killing Remotely: The Psychology of Killing with Drones, and Gary Watson, VP of Solutions, Fortem Technologies, to solidify your understanding of what is required for a C-UAS architecture that will successfully defend against current and future threats. Learn how bad actors leverage technological advancements to create their own air force and employ drones for missions that have never before been possible.

Key takeaways you will get from this webinar:

  • Learning the evolution of the drone threat
  • Better understanding of the usage and capabilities of sUAS
  • How to accurately detect, monitor, and mitigate these threats, now and into the future

Recorded June 16th, 2021

Description: We often visualize a modern C-UAS system as something bulky which requires professional installation, or something fantastically expensive and mounted to an armored vehicle.

Modern technological advances now enable small, optimized, and portable drone detection  and mitigation systems. These innovative radar-based systems can be transported in a truck bed or trailer and set up by one or two officers in less than an hour. Military, police, and other public safety officers can now provide rapid response to protect events and small sites.

In this webinar, you will learn how to establish effective counter drone capability at any small site.

Recorded May 19th, 2021

Description: Join Fortem Technologies CEO Timothy Bean and Exec Chairman Jon Gruen to hear some of the lessons they've learned and how to build a future-proof C-UAS system. Tim is a security executive fighting terrorism through technology for over 20 years, and Jon spent 23 years as a Navy SEAL, with command over UAS units and 11 years with Lockheed Martin. Originally presented as part of the IQPC Virtual C-UAS Summit.

Recorded April 1st, 2021

Description: Radars can see everything, which is their biggest strength and can simultaneously be a huge potential weakness when they are used for drone detection. Join VP of Solutions Gary Watson as he provides real-world guidance on correctly sizing your radar requirements.

Learn about the sources of interference and ambiguity in today's busy physical and electronic landscape, what advanced radar features are needed to overcome these challenges, and strategies for deploying networked radars to overcome blind spots and terrain occlusion.

Recorded March 30th, 2021

Description: Join Gregg Pugmire, VP of Worldwide Sales, to learn how you can build the foundation of an integrated counter drone system with Fortem owned technology. The SkyDome System is the only end to end counter UAS system that detects, monitors, assesses, and mitigates drone threats.

Recorded March 3rd, 2021

,Description: As the COVID pandemic subsides in the APAC region, the increase in public events and the proliferation of drone use will inevitably drive criminal and terrorist activity. The time is now for law enforcement professionals of all types to prepare to detect illegal or unsafe drone activity, and to put into place equipment, procedures, and training to safely but firmly deal with illicit drone behavior.

In this webinar, Gary Watson, VP Solutions of Fortem Technologies, will explain the newest drone threats, a layered approach for mitigating these threats, and keys to successful apprehension and prosecution of offenders.

Recorded February 2nd, 2021

Description: It's a common misconception that federal law prevents counter drone activities by state and local police departments. This is far from true. There are many steps you can take today to develop this capability and build a foundation toward additional capabilities in the future.

Join Fortem VP of Solutions Gary Watson and counter drone expert DJ Smith, Technical Surveillance Agent for the Virginia State Police, as they walk through effective legal measures and discuss which steps are not yet legal.

Recorded November 18th, 2020

Special guest Christopher Church, Senior Forensics Specialist for INTERPOL joins us to discuss the challenges for C-UAS in an urban environment, including:

  • What's not working and the state of regulations today
  • How to detect all drones
  • How to counter intruding dangerous drones legally and safely

Learn more about how the Fortem SkyDome System can help you with your urban C-UAS goals.

Recorded September 30th, 2020

CTO Adam Robinson and VP of Solutions Gary Watson covered the top of mind issues around coordinated drone threats en masse, the realities of what is possible and where the technology for drone flocks and swarms is heading. Learn how to detect, understand, and counter these threats today and stay secure in the future.

Recorded August 19th, 2020

Our series continues with a special Gulf Regional focused webinar covering advanced counter drone defense strategies to protect critical national infrastructure, aviation and government facilities from the real and present dangers posed by asymmetric drone warfare and drone surveillance across the GCC and beyond. Learn how Fortem's end to end SkyDome System uses machine learning and advanced 3D radar to counter these dangerous threats.

Recorded July 28th, 2020

Description: In this Asia focused webinar, we discuss the security issues caused by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the skies above us. Learn how the Fortem SkyDome System can elevate your existing security to increase airspace situational awareness and counter rogue drones. Presented during daytime business hours for our Asian customers.

Date recorded: June 24th, 2020

Description: Join us and aviation attorney Jonathan Rupprecht as we discuss the state of the current counter drone laws, including the recent guidance from the Attorney General, and how to take advantage of government programs to start your counter drone security plans.

Date recorded: May 27th, 2020

Description: In this webinar, we show how the detection and tracking technology in a C-UAS system is the same technology that will be needed to enable UTM systems for safe and secure urban air mobility.
