Percepto launched the next generation of its AI-powered autonomous industrial Drone-in-a-Box (DIB). Available now, the solution includes a highly portable, smaller, lighter-weight and extreme weather resistant base station. Adding field-proven 5G compatibility, the new DIB also features seamless integration of 2D mapping and 3D modeling, highly customized reporting, comprehensive compliance and enhanced safety functions.
Fortem Technologies announced the launch of SkyDome v. 2.4, an AI-enabled, API friendly platform that allows approved drones to fly safely and rogue drones to be mitigated. A major addition to the SkyDome platform, ThreatAware™ is Fortem’s robust, AI analysis engine that assesses data from multiple sensors and sources in real-time, providing continuous threat levels for multiple objects in the environment. This powerful tool identifies site-specific patterns-of-life.
Echodyne announced today that they will be leading a session on perimeter security for energy facilities on June 12th at the Energy Drone + Robotics Summit, in Houston. The company will speak about the importance of integrating high-performance radars into existing video management systems for a single view of both air and ground domains within a comprehensive perimeter security system. The Energy Drone + Robotics Summit will take place at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
Percepto announced that it will operate and broadcast live overseas autonomous drone missions from its stand (IF2146) at IFSEC International 2019 in London. The company will also launch the next generation of its industrial and enterprise grade drone-in-a-box system solution, including new software improvements and enhanced all-weather base station. This is the first time that Percepto has brought its autonomous drone solution to the UK and Europe’s leading security event.
Percepto announced that it has successfully demonstrated its autonomous drones over SK Telecom’s 5G trial network. SK Telecom is the largest mobile operator in Korea, leading the world in the field of mobile telecommunications by commercializing its 5G network in December 2018. Dain SNT, Percepto’s representative in Korea, has been collaborating with SK Telecom to apply Percepto’s solutions to SK Telecom’s commercial 5G network.
Fortem Technologies and Unifly announced they will collaborate to develop a joint airspace safety and security solution for a drone-enabled society. This new end-to-end solution will allow UTM and U-space architectures to be used by public safety officers, military groups and other government agencies to secure airspace around critical infrastructure, airports, stadiums, public venues and more. Fortem Technologies and Unifly were both chosen to participate in the UAS Integration Pilot Program.
Percepto announced that it has launched its all-in-one aerial solution for autonomous security, safety and inspection missions in Australia, following the completion of a series of successful live mission demonstrations in Canberra. During the demonstration, Percepto conducted missions to highlight how its autonomous ‘Sparrow’ drones can deliver value across a diverse range of industrial and enterprise applications in sectors including mining, oil and gas, renewable energy, utilities, port and sea terminals.
World ATM Congress announced that they will collaborate to provide an integrated solution that allows for the safe operation of drones within geofences while also enforcing no-fly zones in cities, around airports and other critical infrastructure. Fortem SkyDome™, enabled by distributed Fortem TrueView™ radar, acts as the SDSP, a data service platform for drone applications. Fortem SkyDome collects and aggregates real-time airspace data.
Percepto revealed that it has participated in an operational experimentation program with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Science and Technology Directorate in collaboration with the U.S. Army. Percepto was invited to participate in the program to evaluate the ability of autonomous drones to perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations and to confirm the presence of adversary assets.
As drones continue to penetrate more areas of society, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are finding new homes within the security industry. Research is currently being performed on improving security operations now and in the future. There are multiple ways civilian drones are being utilized for security operations around the world. While the legislation is starting to fall behind the speed of the technology, resulting in restrictions for the full potential of UAVs, there are changes occurring.
