AUTONOMOUS DRONE CAPTURE SYSTEM
OVERVIEW

SKYWALL CAPTURES DRONES AND PROTECTS

  • No electronic countermeasure
  • Predictable outcome
  • Automatic system that can be remotely operated
  • Vehicle or building mount
  • Multiple targets engaged rapidly
  • AI computer vision tracking
  • Controlled descent using a parachute
  • All projectile parts remain attached
  • Targeted counter-measure aiming and release
SkyWall Auto is an autonomous system that is remotely operated and rapidly captures multiple targets in accurately-delivered nets, deployed in conjunction with electronic counter-measures for a layered defence, or in environments where electronic attack cannot be used.

It can be used as a standalone drone capture system or be integrated with a drone detection and security system to offer a highly capable and easy to operate counter drone solution. A single SkyWall Auto system can protect a high-value asset or multiple systems can be networked and deployed to protect a large site.

SkyWall Auto launches a projectile up to the target drone after the system has autonomously acquired and tracked it using world leading edge AI technology. The system can be permanently installed on a building or vehicle mounted for a mobile deployment.

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.

SKYWALL AUTO IS AN AUTONOMOUS SYSTEM THAT INCLUDES ANTMICRO’S WORLD-LEADING EDGE AI CAPABILITIES.

Technology that allows drone capture at the press of one button.

 

Antmicro’s tracking technology brings highly capable performance when tracking targets against complex backgrounds and following fixed-winged threats.

Deep learning based methods make use of the latest generation of NVIDIA GPU-enabled computing platforms that offer exceptional performance for AI inference. Working closely in partnership, OpenWorks and Antmicro are developing the most capable drone tracking and capture system on the market.
 
SkyWall Auto has already proven its ability to physically capture drones in front of US military and government agencies during recent high-profile tests held in Indiana and New Mexico. SkyWall Auto engaged targets at the Black Dart and JIDO Hard Kill events, successfully engaging multi-rotor and fixed-wing targets at both test events during a range of scenarios.

CASE STUDY

SKYWALL PROTECTS THE US PRESIDENT

Multiple SkyWall counter drone systems were deployed during a visit from the President of the United States of America to Berlin.

This operational deployment demonstrates how the unique SkyWall capability can provide protection from drone threats for heads of state while in mobile and urban environments.

The SkyWall system allows operators to physically capture any suspicious drone and bring it to the ground safely, without raising alarm in the surrounding area or causing collateral damage.

SkyWall was deployed in strategic locations, working alongside other counter drone technologies, to provide a high level of protection for President Barack Obama and the visiting delegation.
