SkyWall on show at DSEI in London in September

The OpenWorks team will be presenting the production SkyWall100 drone defence system and the SkyWall300 at DSEI in London September 12-15th.

SkyWall is a system that enables any security authority the ability to protect assets from the threats posed by drones. SkyWall100 is a man-portable, cost effective system that captures a drone in a net and then brings it to the ground under a parachute.

The latest SkyWall300 system will be presented alongside the long range net capture projectile, the SP40-ER, that will be capable of capturing errant UAS multiple kilometers away.
