With current ubiquity of drones, many people don’t feel safe or feel that they have lost their privacy. There has come a need for an anti-drone solution to make people feel secure again.

Fortem Technologies has announced the release of DroneHunter, the first military-tested unmanned aircraft that provides perimeter intrusion detection and protection by autonomously patrolling an airspace and towing away any rogue drones from the sky.

DroneHunter is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that operates autonomously and provides an onboard autopilot and navigation system, and optional 4K camera for real-time video.

Using AI algorithms, the DroneHunter system provides detection, monitoring and capture of rogue drones over restricted airspace or no-fly zones. Once a rogue drone is detected and captured, DroneHunter can tether and return, or safely discard to a predefined safe zone.

“Drones are accessible to everyone now and are beginning to proliferate to enable many new services,” said CEO of Fortem Technologies, Timothy Bean. “However, to fully embrace these  benefits, we must monitor the airspace and secure no-fly zones. systems like DroneHunter are game-changing, enabling the benefits of a drone world to be realized.”

Equipped with Fortem TrueView radar, DroneHunter includes an autonomous guidance system and an open command and control platform to detect, identify and tow away hostile drones within a secured geo-fenced perimeter’ according to DroneHunter notifies authorized personnel of potential aerial threats in real time. The command center ground station provides monitoring and manual intervention override options to meet situational requirements.
