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.
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.
