Fortem DroneHunter Ready For Market

Uses Netting To Counter Potential Drone Threats

The Fortem DroneHunter is ready for market, according to the company, which raised $5.5 million last year to start production.

TechCrunch reports that the cost of the system has not been disclosed, though it will likely only be of interest to defense and other government customers.

According to the company, The Fortem DroneHunter is an unmanned counter-UAS aircraft engineered to autonomously fly toward unwanted drones in the sky–without a human pilot on the ground–and detect, track, classify, monitor via video stream, inspect, and safely capture the intruder drone. Fortem’s DroneHunter is the world’s first counter-drone system that operates beyond line of sight (BLOS) using radar to protect a perimeter day and night from unwanted air threats.

Some of the technology was developed and hardened over several years on U.S. Department of Defense applications and is now available for commercial use. Core technologies include TrueView Radar, machine learning, specialized guidance, secure data collection and services, robotics and aerospace design, and open command and control platforms for customers to detect, track, classify and mitigate unwanted drones. The open, secure ground station offers operational flexibility of multiple DroneHunters.
