CAPTURE DRONES     I     PROTECT ASSETS
OVERVIEW

SKYWALL CAPTURES DRONES AND PROTECTS

  • No electronic countermeasure
  • Predictable outcome
  • Keeps the captured target intact to allow forensic investigation
  • Highly mobile to allow flexibility during the mission
  • Controlled descent using a parachute
  • All projectile parts remain attached
  • Targeted counter-measure aiming and release
SkyWall100 is an operationally-deployed system that gives a mobile operator the ability to physically capture a drone in a net, used in conjunction with electronic counter-measures for a layered defence, or in environments where electronic attack cannot be deployed.

It uses compressed air to launch a projectile up to the drone after the operator has targeted it using the onboard SmartScope, that compensates for drone speed and range automatically. Conventional weapons often fail to incapacitate a drone and do not offer a proportionate response to the drone threat and they can also escalate a situation when used in the vicinity of large crowds.

SkyWall100 can be used as a standalone drone defence solution but can also be integrated with a wider security system, using the skylink module, to offer a highly capable counter drone package. A single SkyWall100 system can protect an area or multiple systems can be deployed from mobile units to protect a large site.

AN INTEGRATED PART OF YOUR MISSION

PROJECTILES

SkyWall projectiles are re-useable and 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.

PROTECTING THE BERLIN AIR SHOW

CASE STUDY
SkyWall100 has been deployed to protect the Berlin Air Show from drone threats, ensuring security and safety can be enforced.

German policing authorities deployed SkyWall100 again at the Berlin Air Show, as part of a system called GUARDION, and thus alongside other technology from across Europe; radar systems will detect potential targets and electronic countermeasures will work with SkyWall to track and stop any confirmed threats.

All of the deployed technologies and products are linked together using a command and control system that was originally developed for the military: TARANIS® by ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik- GmbH. Based near Munich in Germany, ESG has identified the most capable products that mitigate the drone threat and united them into a layered defence system to achieve a highly capable complete system, called “GUARDION”.

The GUARDION system allows drones to be detected, tracked and neutralised in a safe way. Allowing it to be deployed in built-up areas and public spaces. The SkyWall net capture systems ensure that drones can be quickly and safely neutralised when required.
