The Skywall Patrol, formally known as the Skywall100, is an alternative solution to the commonly used frequency (RF) jamming technology. Whilst RF jamming solutions are very effective, they have high collateral effects on the wider community, their use is highly regulated, and generally prohibited except for law enforcement and military agencies.
The Skywall Patrol is a kinetic solution that uses compressed air to deploy an intelligent projectile. The intelligent projectile splits in half when in close proximity to the drone and deploys a net to capture it. Some intelligent projectiles contain a parachute to guide the drone safely to the ground. The Skywall Patrol is a cost-effective solution that provides a proportionate response to defeat a drone.
The Skywall Patrol can be deployed as a single drone defeat solution or part of a multilevel security overlay eg a radio frequency jammer and the Skywall Patrol could offer both long and short range protection against multiple types of drone threats. In some circumstances, this type of system could be used as a last line of defence for dignitary protection.
Skywall Patrol is a handheld system that gives a mobile operator the ability to physically capture a drone in a specifically designed ‘drone entangling’ net. It uses compressed air to launch a projectile up to the drone after the operator has targeted it using the on board SmartScope.
Skywall Patrol can be used as a standalone drone defence system but can also be integrated with a wider security system, using the skylink module, to offer a highly capable counter drone package.
