OpenWorks Engineering has developed a vehicle-mounted versions of its SkyWall Auto Response drone capture system. The solution is designed to provide security forces with a way of protecting a large area using SkyWall net capture technology, already deployed at critical national infrastructure around the world.
According to an OpenWorks Engineering press release, SkyWall Auto Response looks like any typical commercial vehicle at first sight as the drone capture system is hidden under rapidly deployable covers, ensuring the system remains discreet when not in use. When a drone threat has been detected, the vehicle can be manoeuvred quickly and the SkyWall net capture system is automatically deployed from under the cover.
SkyWall Auto Response was launched at DSEI in September 2019, and the vehicle-mounted version will be exhibited for the first time at Security & Policing 3 – 5 March 2020.
SkyWall Auto Response autonomous drone capture solution is a development by OpenWorks and technology partner Antmicro. The developmental system has been tested and proven in static installations at high-profile military evaluations and can capture fast moving multi-rotor (quad) or fixed-wing drones according to the company.
OpenWorks released a handheld capture system SkyWall Patrol (previously SkyWall100) in 2016 and has since delivered systems to law enforcement and military customers around the world. The latest release provides another option to work alongside the existing systems or for operators that require larger area protection.
