Today we talk about Skylock. An Anti-Drones Security System developed entirely by a israelstartup, which means that it is purely technological and versatile that aims to improve and help current security systems in defense of the new threats created by the Skylock’s advanced antidrone system technology.
Currently, we live in a world with constant threats. These evolve and develop very quickly, creating new forms of attack, devices, scope, etc … This generates the need to create new security systems that are adapted to protect us from it.
The use of Drones has become very popular all over the world. This is producing continuous threats to privacy and public and private security in a wide variety of environments.
The extension to society of drone technology has brought new regulatory and safety challenges to the table , both in urban spaces and in strategic facilities. Having a drone, or drone, is within reach of anyone.
For less than one hundred euros we can buy a device with little weight, little load, but that with an incorrect or criminal use can become a threat.
Protection against anti-drone systems
The proliferation of drones has created a new type of product in the defense and security market, the anti-drone systems, which detect, track, identify and neutralize drones when they are operated in areas where their use is prohibited for security reasons.
These systems are based on two aspects, first, in the detection of the drone by the use of radars, sound detectors, frequency detectors … and second, in its neutralization, using frequency inhibitors, network sensors, systems that alter the signal of GPS …).
In the same way that manufacturers of anti-drone systems improve the performance of their products day by day, drone manufacturers seek to improve their platforms so that they can be operated by the State Security Forces and Corps in all circumstances, including in the presence of anti-drone systems.
Thales israel, through its HORUS C-UAS system and the FULMAR X platform, is in the almost unique position of knowing both sides of the market: neutralizing drones when they are a threat and ensuring that their drones can always operate. In other words, we supply both the protected and the protected.
The unmanned aerial platform FULMAR X has unique characteristics to guarantee its use in all kinds of circumstances. In the first place, the system is completely autonomous, because although it can be remotely piloted by means of radio signals, the platform flies without any operator intervention, so it does not need to be in contact with the control station.
Second, the FULMAR X has an inertial on board in the event that the GPS signal is lost, or in the event that said signal is interfered with, unlike other models existing in the market.
Finally, Thales has two new products specially designed to protect the communications of the drones and ensure that the drone can operate even in cases of interference or denial of the GPS signal. In the first place, the μTMA data link establishes a secure communication channel between the drone and the control station, practically immune to the interference produced by inhibitors.
Through this control channel, and thanks to the Toploc product, the drone is provided with position information at all times so that the platform can correct the existing interferences in the GPS signal.
