Capture drones and protect assets
07 March 2016
The SkyWall concept is simple; physically deliver a counter-measure up to the target. Capture a drone in a net and land it safely with a parachute.
The proliferation of cheap and easy to fly drones has triggered a rise in the number of incidents where the safety and security of individuals and facilities has been compromised. They have infiltrated the security of heads of state, delivered contraband into prisons and photographed private film sets and celebrity's property.
SkyWall offers those exposed to the drone threat with the ability to physically capture an aircraft and control it’s descent to the ground.
The SkyWall system is a combination of a compressed gas powered smart launcher and an intelligent programmable projectile. The first system being released is SkyWall100; a man-portable handheld launcher that is highly mobile and a cost effective way of dealing with the drone threat.
The best way to neutralise a drone is to physically intercept it. This neutralises any type of drone, whether flown manually or autonomously. SkyWall gives you a physical barrier in the sky. The system can be rapidly reloaded, allowing multiple drone threats to be engaged by a single operator.
SkyWall Projectiles can carry a range of counter measures. The SP40 includes a parachute which controls the descent of a captured drone. This minimises the risk of any collateral damage and keeps the drone intact. It allows forensic investigation and enables identification of the operator. If the drone eludes capture, the projectile deploys regardless and controls the safe descent of the tethered components.
