The advanced handheld, AI-driven, self-contained Fortem DroneHunter is used in Ukraine defeat Putin’s drones
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah, May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Fortem Technologiesleader in airspace security and defense to detect and defeat dangerous drones, announced a new, smaller portable counter-UAS system in direct response to the crisis in Ukraine. In close cooperation with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence, Fortem provided Ukraine with a number of Fortem SkyDome handheld counter-UAS solutions, as well as on-site training and support. The solution includes the Fortem DroneHunterwhich autonomously removes drones from the sky day and night.
Ukraine urgently needs portable counter-drone technology to detect and disarm Group 1 and Group II enemy surveillance drones. Recognizing this, Fortem took its pre-existing handheld counter-UAS system and further miniaturized and simplified it for use as an expeditionary rapid deployment system.
“Fortem creates the best drone interceptor in the world. We work every day to protect sites, campuses and entire cities from rogue drone incursions,” said Fortem Technologies CEO. Timothy bean. “When our predictions came true – that drones would be used heavily in the next major conflict – we knew we had to act quickly to arm our allies with the technology needed to protect themselves from drone surveillance and attacks.”
The Fortem SkyDome portable counter-UAS solution can be installed very quickly with a network de-energized without connection to electrical networks or generators. This allows expeditionary forces to operate on the frontier of a conflict without being dependent on heavy and noisy operating infrastructure or support equipment. The solution is very safe for operators, as the operator can be stationed far away and can stop transmissions on ground radios to avoid electronic detection. The detection sensors operate at a very high beamwidth and low power, so it is extremely difficult to detect the solution with electronic countermeasures.
“It is obvious that the new weapon of war is drones, and countries must be prepared to protect their people and infrastructure from such attacks,” said a senior UKR MOD official. “Fortem’s SkyDome system provides detection and mitigation of attacking drones, which helps Ukraine in his fight against Putin’s forces.”
Currently, Fortem Technologies is deployed in the United States, Middle East, Asia and, more recently, Ukraine. Additionally, Toshiba recently chose Fortem as its global counter drone partner.
