NATO is evaluating mitigation solutions for the emerging threat of small, dangerous UAV as part of its “Comparative Analysis of Lethal, Low Collateral Damage Effectors Against Low, Small and Slow UAV” programme. Among technology under review, the European defence agency has selected solutions developed by US supplier Fortem Technology including the SkyDome Network defense system, ThreatAware platform and DroneHunter autonomous drone interceptor. DroneHunter is designed to net and capture offending drones and tow them to a safe location for analysis.
“The NATO Defence Against Terrorism Program of Work is actively examining technologies that generate a lower collateral damage and that are mature and fully able to perform in realistic, threatening scenarios,” said Alexandre Papy, Dr Ir NATO DAT C-UAV Chairman.
The following nations are actively supporting the project: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom (vice-chair), United States and The Netherlands. The industry selection meeting will be held at the Royal Military Academy in Brussels, Belgium, December 17 and 18.
