SKYWALL100 Deployed in Berlin
During US President Barack Obama’s visit to Berlin, Germany earlier this month a counter-drone system developed by British engineers was deployed to protect his entourage from threats from UAS.
Working alongside other counter-drone technologies, SKYWALL100 was deployed in strategic locations, providing a high level of protection for President Obama and the visiting delegation. The event clearly demonstrated the system’s unique capabilities in providing drone threat protection for VIPs in mobile and urban environments.
SKYWALL100, developed by Openworks Engineering, allows operators to physically capture a suspicious UAS and bring safely to earth, unobtrusively and without raising an alarm in the immediate area or causing collateral damage.
