As drones are becoming an increasing threat, South Korea has been acquiring new counter-drone systems. Department 13 International has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Korea Counter-Terrorism Solutions (KCTS), a leading distributor of counter-terrorism solutions in South Korea.
Their MESMER counter drone system is a non-jamming drone mitigation solution providing a safe and effective method of protecting personnel and infrastructure from dangerous drones.
The system was recently demonstrated in South Korea.
According to the company website, the counter drone system is a unique, patented, low power, non-jamming, non-line of sight, non-kinetic drone mitigation solution. It provides a safe and effective method of protecting personnel and infrastructure from dangerous drones, according to proactiveinvestors.com.au.
The key differentiator for the system is its ability to manipulate weaknesses in all digital radio protocols. This allows the system to put into effect sophisticated automated detection and mitigation strategies to stop, redirect, land or take control of drones across a range of national security and defense scenarios.
The technology is built on open source software architecture, which ensures that MESMER can be seamlessly integrated into existing security and surveillance systems.
