Press Release, embargoed until 20 November 2019: SKYLOCK, part of the Avnon Group, announced today at Milipol Paris, where they were chosen as one of the top contenders for Milipol’s new innovation award, that they have developed a unique system to intercept hostile drones.

The DRONELOCK – DRONE VS DRONE system which is integrated into a small fast-flying and easily manoeuvrable drone is highly responsive; quickly intercepting hostile drones and removing their threat.

Once an unauthorised drone is detected by radar, the intercepting drone is deployed towards the moving target. Using multiple built-in sensors on approach, the drone against drone system tracks the moving target, locking onto it and disabling it by collision.

Aviad Matza, SKYLOCK’s CEO explained; “Swarm attacks carried out by Pre-programmed drones are the new lethal weapon, a perfect example was the drone attack carried out on the world’s largest oil facility in Saudi Arabia by the Houthis rebels, using ten drones. Pre-programmed drones are harder to intercept, rendering conventional jamming systems useless. We have developed a solution that is ideal for airports and bases where there are regulatory restrictions preventing the use of jamming systems. In the case of a drone swarm we simply release additional drones to intercept and bring down the unauthorised drones.”

BENEFITS:

• Provides a solution for areas where jamming is restricted

• Used against drone swarms

• Rapidly deployed

• Mil-standard
