An airspace security and technology management company SkySafe announced that its cloud-based counter-drone technology can detect drone flights in Canada, all thanks to its partnership with Robotics Centre. SkySafe Cloud offers its customers a way to detect, track, and analyze the drones in the airspace without buying or maintaining expensive hardware. This adds to its uniqueness as the only company in the world to build, own and operate city-wide sensor networks. SkySafe also offers airspace awareness via a subscription to its cloud-based application.
The CEO of SkySafe, Grant Jordan, said,” As more and more drones enter the airspace, more incidents are occurring from the work of careless or criminal drone operators.” He added, “Drones and dropping contraband into prisons; at the same time, drones smuggle drugs across the borders and disrupt open-air events. Hence, we are excited to bring airspace awareness to Canada so unauthorized and dangerous drones can be identified and mitigate threats.”
Since 2015, SkySafe has tested and deployed counter-drone capabilities counter-drone capabilities to military and public safety customers, domestically and abroad. The company also offers a comprehensive defence against the threat of drones. This is possible by applying advanced radio frequency (RF) technology, reverse engineering, and deep threat analysis.
SkySafe’s partner company Robotics Centre’s CEO and Co-founder, Charles Barlow, said,” SkySafe is a great partner for Robotics Centre. It has been exciting to see the technology live in Ottawa, and we will also focus on expanding its reach throughout Canada.”
