Fortem Technologies deploys the SkyDome System and DroneHunters in Europe
SALT LAKE CITY - January 20, 2022 --
Fortem Technologies, leaders in airspace security and defense for detecting and defeating dangerous drones, is pleased to report the deployment of Fortem SkyDome and DroneHunters protecting high-profile campuses against drone surveillance and drone attack in Europe.
“We build the world’s most effective drone interceptor day and night,” said Magnus Wallmark, VP, Sales and Services at Fortem Technologies. “Fortem defeated them all, fixed wings included showing to be the safest and most elegant solution available.”
Tensions across the world are increasing and drones are a weapon now in the hands of most actors and countries. Threats from Iran, Yemen, and Russia are all putting pressure on air defenses across many venues, campuses, and entire cities. FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before Congress that a drone attack in the US is eminent.
The Pentagon is spending millions on interceptor drones as reported in 2020. Fortem now has multiple government and defense customers in North America, the Middle East, and throughout Asia.
At the core, AI and autonomy are the keys to the Fortem DroneHunter success. It is why we are winning,” said Timothy bean CEO of Fortem Technologies. “Also, the DroneHunter is very easy to use because they fly completely autonomously. Readying the drone for the next sortie requires no technical skill. Its armed and ready for the next mission very quickly.”
Custom built for speed and agility, Fortem DroneHunter is the world’s premier AI-enabled interceptor drone. Deep integration with onboard TrueView radar makes autonomous detection, pursuit, and capture of drones, including waypoint-directed, non-RF emitting drones, possible. Effective day and night, DroneHunter captures and tows away dangerous or malicious drones. The DroneHangar™ is an environmentally controlled hub that protects a DroneHunter from extremes in temperature and weather, keeping it charged and ready for flight 24/7. The DroneHunter NetGuns are easy to remove and reload in under ten seconds to resume secondary missions quickly. The low cost of both the overall system and the expendable effectors brings an operationally viable solution to the battlefield and installations that is available today.
