OpenWorks is pleased to report it has received contracts for the new SkyTrack systems and SkyWall Patrol with an initial value of £2 million.
GET THE POWER BEHIND SKYTRACK FOR YOUR CAMERA WITH SKYAI
With the proven success of SkyTrack and the end-user feedback of the limitations of existing C-UAS systems lacking autonomy and requiring heavy operator input to work effectively, It was clear that end users wanted OpenWorks optical classification and tracking technology.
Many organisations already have camera systems installed or have a preferred provider of EO/IR hardware, perhaps due to it’s use within other projects. That’s why OpenWorks has developed SkyAI.
SkyAI is already being tested on several highly cost effective commercial camera systems, with more information due to be published soon. Later this year it will be tested on the longest range systems on the market. Watch SkyAI tracking and motion control in action below.
THE SKYWALL NET CAPTURE CAPABILITY REMAINS UNMATCHED AND THE USER COMMUNITY GROWS
The SkyWall Patrol system was first deployed by close protection teams and other specialist law enforcement and military groups. Nearly 5 years on and law enforcement groups are working with OpenWorks to explore national capability roll outs.
New operator training courses have been developed over the last 2 years that reduce the time and cost taken to train new operators to allow more largescale deployments of the net-capture capability in a cost effective way.
AUTONOMOUS NET CAPTURE IS TESTED BY THE MILITARY
Since Security and Policing 2020, SkyWall Auto has been evaluated by European military organisations and travelled to North America for trial events.
The video below shows some of the autonomous target engagements during one of the evaluations in a point defence scenario with a high speed multi-rotor drone.
SKYWALL AUTO PROVIDES INTERGRATED NET CAPTURE FOR MBDA TEAM SKY WARDEN
MBDA launches Team Sky Warden at IDEX, to offer an integrated and highly capable C-UAS solution to the military and security forces.
SkyWall Net Capture is selected to provide UAS defeat with low collateral damage risk and without the need to use electronic attack.
OpenWorks is proud to be working with the Sky Warden partners to provide a flexible and capable C-UAS capability with MBDA. There will be more announcements coming through 2021 as the system will undergo live demonstrations across Europe.
If you’ve not seen our SkyWall C-UAS technology before, you can find more general information on our systems in our PDF brochure or across this website.
