High-tech “hub” enhances DroneHunter performance; acts as a force multiplier for defeating dangerous drones
Pleasant Grove, UT – December 16, 2020 – Fortem Technologies, the leader in airspace security and defence for detecting and defeating dangerous drones, announced today the availability of its custom DroneHangar™, a high-tech hub that houses the Fortem DroneHunter® and dramatically improves its performance. Eliminating the need for manual delivery, setup, and launch by personnel that is required of most counter-drone mitigation solutions, such as hand-held jamming and net guns, DroneHangar is a force multiplier that makes engagement and mitigation of threatening drones, at a safe distance, possible.
Drone Hangar is tightly integrated with SkyDome Manager software, enabling the expeditious launch of DroneHunter in under six seconds. This autonomous, rapid deployment also reduces the need for operators or technicians to manually monitor and manage the DroneHunter before or after a sortie is completed.
DroneHangar is an environmentally controlled hub that protects the DroneHunter from extreme temperature and weather conditions, keeping it charged and ready for flight. It eliminates any pre-launch tuning by personnel, and automatically feeds health monitoring such as battery life, temperature, and ready status into SkyDome Manager. Designed to be portable, DroneHangar can be trailer-mounted for easy maneuvering and can be installed at any location that has power and ethernet.
“DroneHangar is an essential part of the SkyDome System, enabling DroneHunter to be functional and ready for flight at a moment’s notice. A key requirement for an effective, end-to-end counter drone system is that it must operate without the need for human intervention,” said Spencer Prows, VP of Engineering at Fortem Technologies. “It’s a modern day ‘BatCave’ for the DroneHunter—providing both protection and intelligence while serving as a remote command center where it’s needed.”About Fortem DroneHunter
