OpenWorks has continued to provide high quality operator training courses. Training has been delivered in the UK and at end-users facilities in North America.


SkyWall100 operator training consists of classroom and field lessons. Trainees learn the basic operation of the system before running through scenario-based drills to gain proficiency and confidence in the system and their ability. Training can be completed in as little as two days with no prior experience needed.


OpenWorks was invited to participate in the Adaptive Red Team Evaluation in downtown New Orleans. This provided a rare opportunity to give live demonstrations of SkyWall100 in a representative inner-city environment.

SkyWall100 was operated at the Superdome, Lafayette Square, City Hall and the Cruise Terminal. The deployment of the onboard parachute ensured a known outcome for the operator.

The event included night time operation demonstrating the SmartScope’s ability to track drone targets in low light conditions.


SkyWall100 on display at SECON 2017 in South Korea

SkyWall100 was on display in South Korea as OpenWorks continue working in partnership with STX, South Korea's leading counter-UAS solution provider.

SkyWall100 was presented as part of a full end-to-end counter UAS system on the STX stand at the SECON exhibition. A range of technologies for drone detection and neutralisation was on display to the visiting delegations, representing the security needs of industrial and national infrastructure and law enforcement.

Boram Kim, Assistant Manager of the STX team, commented "we had a very fruitful exhibition at SECON 2017, especially with a great attention to SkyWall100. People have shown a great interest in this new technology".

OpenWorks is excited to be working closely with such a proactive organisation, STX is continually pushing to pull together the best counter UAS products and technologies to ensure their customers have access to the most capable and appropriate solution to their security scenario.
